KCET 2018 comprises of 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 2018 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.

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 2018, 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 2018 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%|
