Exams for ICSE are being conducted by Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE). The Biology Examination for Class 10 ICSE is scheduled for tomorrow i.e., December 15, 2021. The examination will be conducted for a total duration of one hour, from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon. No extra time for reading the question paper will be provided. As there is no time left for the examination students are advised to go through the syllabus and specimen papers carefully to put the finishing touches to their preparations for the exam.
The specimen papers, syllabus, and marking schemes for the economics semester 1 exam are available on the website of CISCE, cisce.org. Students should familiarize themselves well with the exam pattern to avoid any last-minute confusion.
As per the provided specimen paper, the semester 1 exam will put up a total of 40 questions from the two units prescribed in the syllabus and a total of 40 marks would be allotted to the paper. So far the syllabus is considered, CISCE reduced the syllabus by 30% according to which Semester 1 syllabus of Biology consists of two units: Basic Biology and Plant Physiology.
The exam paper will be divided into 3 sections. Section A will be 15 marks, Section B will be 15 marks as well and Section C will contain 10 marks. Students will have to mark the answers in the provided answer booklet. As per the marking scheme for each correct answer, 1 mark will be provided. The theory paper consists of 40 marks and there will be a practical or internal assessment for 10 marks.
Apart from this, students had to undergo an internal assessment of practical work for a total of 20 marks. It included sections from Plant Life and Animal Life. This assessment was evaluated by an external teacher, not belonging to the relevant subject or class.
In the specimen paper provided questions are based on theory as well as diagrams, so the same is expected for tomorrow’s exam. Students are advised to read the question paper properly before attempting it, so there is no margin for mistakes.
