The last and final Term 1 exam was conducted today, December 21, 2021, for the Class 12 students belonging to the Science (PCM) stream. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducted the Class 12 Computer Science Term 1 2021-22 exam through the offline mode at affiliated schools across the country. The paper was held for a duration of 90 minutes i.e., from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. It comprised 56 questions out of which students were expected to attempt a minimum of 45 questions.
The Class 12 Computer Science Term 1 2021-22 paper was divided into three sections – Section A, Section B, and Section C. Section A comprised of 25 questions of which 20 had to be answered. A similar pattern and internal choices were applicable in the case of Section B. The third section had 6 questions out of which 5 had to be answered.
Today’s Class 12 Computer Science Term 1 2021-22 exam was held for a duration of 90 minutes. During this time period, a student was expected to attempt and complete the entire paper. They had to figure out the right option and mark the same in their answer sheet. Due to such an entirely objective-based paper, students can calculate their exam scores immediately.
Several educators, teachers, and subject experts are in the process of uploading the Class 12 Computer Science Term 1 2021-22 answer key. It will be available at some time in two formats – one, as a PDF document listing the right options to all 56 questions, and two, as video-based solutions uploaded on the streaming platform YouTube. Students can opt for either format to compare their responses and determine the total correct responses.
The question paper was based on the revised syllabus provided by the board. It included questions from Unit 1: Computational Thinking and Programming, covering topics like Python and Introduction to Files. The latter was further categorized into Binary files, CSV files, and text files.
As per the newly-devised Class 12 Computer Science Term 1 2021-22 exam pattern, all questions in the paper carry the same weightage. Moreover, there is no negative marking for answered or incorrect questions. This invariably gave students a chance to attempt all questions and increase the possibility of scoring 35/35 marks. This pattern will also make it easier for students to determine their tentative scores.
The central education board will also be releasing the Class 12 Computer Science Term 1 2021-22 official answer key in the next few days. This answer key will most likely be released in PDF format. So, students can compare their responses with the official answer key and determine the actual score. Of course, the actual score differs from the tentative one by 1-2 marks. Hence, students do not have to worry too much about the accuracy of answer keys uploaded online.
