Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) has today, dated December 07, 2021, conducted the ISC Class 12 Semester 1 Biotechnology exam. The examination was held from 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm for a duration of 90 minutes in various affiliated schools across the country. As per the new paper pattern released earlier by the CISCE, Semester 1 examination is being conducted in the objective MCQ-based mode. Hence, soon after the exam is concluded, students seamlessly expect the answer keys for the exam.
CISCE does not release the official answer key immediately after the examination of every subject. It is planned to release the answer keys for all the subjects together once the semester 1 exams terminate. However, due to the objective nature of the exam, students immediately expect the answer keys to calculate their respective scores. Hence, many educators and subject experts release the unofficial answer key online on various social media platforms. Their exam analysis and solutions PDFs are apt to calculate a tentative score before the release of the official answer key.

The score calculated using this unofficial answer key may differ a little for answers which are based on different perspectives of people. Although, it gives a rough idea/ estimate of the actual score. In such cases, applicants are advised to review several answer keys before concluding their score. Applicants can check out the answer key released by a few YouTubers whose links are listed below:
The YouTube channels mentioned above have uploaded short videos scrolling through the question pdf.

Candidates are advised to visit all the links and compare the answers posed by the different channels mentioned above.
Students who have appeared in the ISC Biotechnology exam today expressed that the questions were framed from the syllabus only and all of them were doable. A total of 70 questions were asked to be solved in 90 minutes. These were mostly theory-based questions based on the new bifurcated syllabus of the Semester 1 Biotechnology exam. Students willing to search for the answers on their own can do so by referring to the following chapters of their textbook:
- Molecular Biology
- Genetic Engineering
Additional 15 minutes were provided to go through the question paper thoroughly before attempting it. While calculating their scores, students are advised to follow the prescribed marking scheme of 1 mark for correct attempted answers and 0 for all incorrect and un-attempted answers. The board will soon release the ISC semester 1 results along with the answer keys for every subject. Applicants can expect these events to occur in the month of January 2022. Meanwhile, they can make use of these unofficial answer keys to calculate their tentative score.
