KCET 2020 pre-exam analysis is based on KCET 2019 Exam analysis, which will help KEAM Aspirants to gear up for the entrance examination. It will also shed light on each section of KCET 2020, which includes type of questions, the difficulty level of the sections etc. Refer to the section wise analysis given below:
In this subject, questions will be asked from Class 11th and 12th Textbooks. Whereas, most of the questions are expected from class 12th textbooks.Maximum questions asked in this subject will be numerical based questions. The difficulty level of Physics section is expected to be between moderate to difficult. Expert says, a score of more than or equal to 85% will suffice
Candidates must focus on their class 11th and class 12th Chemistry textbooks as maximum questions will be asked from it. Chemistry section is expected to be not so difficult in comparison to the Physics section. KEAM Aspirants can expect a good number of numerical-based questions in this question. Candidates can expect a good deal of questions from their class 12th chemistry textbooks.
Similar to previous sections, KCET Mathematics section questions will be asked from Class 11th and Class 12th Textbooks. Most of the questions are expected to be easy but the percentage of difficult questions is also expected to be on the higher side.
In this section also, questions will be asked from Class 11th and Class 12th textbooks. The quotient of difficult questions is expected to be lower side. Most of the questions will be moderately difficult, as indicated by KCET 2019 Exam Pattern. A score 80% and 85% will be enough to put the candidate’s name in the merit list.
KCET 2019 was conducted successfully on April 29 & 30. Students had mixed reactions towards the exam. While some said the exam was of moderate difficulty level others believed that exam was easy and quite high scoring. All the sections in the exam had moderate difficulty level. However, Physics and Chemistry had a comparatively higher number of questions from class 12th.
KCET 2020 comprises 3 subjects: Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics/Biology. Candidates need to solve 60 questions per subject to be solved within 80 minutes for each paper.
Check the image below to understand the pattern and marking scheme for exam.
Mathematics: The paper was easy to solve and most of the questions were asked from the prescribed syllabus of First and Second year PUC as per the claims made by some of the experts. Judging by reactions of several students, 40 questions can be categorized as easy while remaining 15 were of medium difficulty and 5 were difficult questions
Biology: A vast majority of questions were from class 12th (almost 75%) while only 15 questions were asked from class 11th syllabus. Again, the questions were strictly based on first and second year PUC curriculum. The paper was not very lengthy and an attempt of 45 to 50 questions can be considered quite good.
Overall, both the papers were of easy to moderate difficulty level without too many tricky questions.
Physics: Like Biology, topics from second year PUC curriculum predominated Physics Paper. A well-prepared student could easily get 80-85% questions correct. Although, some candidates claimed that as many as 10% questions fall in the difficult category. However, no major hiccups are expected as all questions fall well within the curriculum of 2 years of PUC.
Chemistry: As per the candidates, Chemistry paper was equally balanced to favor all the aspirants. The majority of questions were conceptual and easy to solve. This year, lots of numerical questions were asked in the examination. The paper had 17 questions from first and second year PUC Curriculum. Read More KCET 2019 Syllabus
Based on the last year pattern, the overall analysis deduced that the exam was difficult than expected with 60 questions which were to be solved within 80 min. This year, candidates need to buckle up as no one can take chances over this opportunity.
This analysis will provide some knowledge about the important topics which should be emphasized upon and the level of exam.
Physics: “The exam was well-structured. A perfect combination of conceptual and application-based questions. Only Electrostatics was believed to be tricky”. This is the response of a student about the subject. Physics, this year is expected to be comparatively easy than other subjects if we consider the record of previous years.
Chemistry: This year, paper is expected to be tough when compared to other sections. Experts predict that normally, a well-prepared student can achieve success. Looking back at the last year, one must not take any chances and study thoroughly by practicing more of conceptual questions as compared to application-based questions.
Mathematics: Unexpectedly, Mathematics was easiest amongst all. Any candidate who has prepared well has great chances to score well in this paper. Discussing 2019, one might get confused because due to few tricky questions but there are lot of chances for Mathematics to get repeated with the same pattern of easy questions in 2019 too.
Given below are the most important topics which one should not exclude from the schedule
|Modern Physics (Atomic Models)||6%|
|Physics of Nucleus||6%|
|Heat and Thermodynamics||8%|
|Alcohol Phenol Ether||6%|
|Carboxylic Acid and its Derivatives||6%|
|Permutation and Combination||6%|
|Continuity and Differentiability||4%|
