The Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) 2022 began on June 16 and will conclude on June 18. While some students found the physics paper to be difficult as compared to last year, others found it to be an easy one. An average student will easily be able to score 30 out of 60 in this section, claim experts. Questions from important topics were few in number and only 20 questions were easy, said students.
“The exam went well. However, there were very few questions from some very important topics, which was unexpected. There was a decent weightage given to modern physics. Around 20 questions were easy and the rest of them were moderately difficult. Compared to last year, the paper was a bit difficult,” said Shashwath R Kedilaya, student, Deeksha, Indiranagar, Bengaluru.
“Overall the physics paper was easy. An average student can score between 25 to 30 marks out of 60. While 43 questions were easy to answer, 13 were moderate and 4 were difficult. There was no change in the pattern and it was well within the framework of NCERT. The paper was easy compared to last year but a few questions were tricky. There was no error in the paper, said Dr Milind Chippalakatti, National Head – Knowledge Management, Deeksha.
