This is a consolidated 2nd PUC Chemistry Blueprint to help you understand the exam pattern. In 2nd PUC ,we learn about what exactly do we mean by a solid, what are the ways we can use different elements to form desirable compounds, we will study about the mysterious elements in the periodic table and also decipher what are these hydrocarbons, why are they so important in this modern civilization. So come let’s begin and explore the fun and crazy world of Chemistry with our app.

2nd PUC Chemistry Blueprint Karnataka Board

The question paper has four parts: A, B, C and D. All the four parts are compulsory.
  1. Part A and B (I & II): Frame questions from all units as required.
  2. Part C (III): Frame questions from Inorganic chemistry (Q.No.19 to 26). Part  D (IV and V). Frame questions for part-IV from Physical chemistry    (Q.No.27 to 31) and for part-V from organic chemistry (Q.No.32 to 37).
  3. Blue print: The question paper must be prepared based on the individual blue print which is based on the weightage of marks for each unit. A variation of ±1 mark in the unit weightage is allowed. A blank blue print model is provided for reference.
  4. All the questions framed must be well within the syllabus provided by PUE department             
  5. Intermixing of questions of different units is not allowed. 5 marks question may be framed as (3+2) as far as possible. Splitting of 3 marks question as 2 + 1 may be avoided.
  6. Questions based on numerical problems : All the necessary data (i.e. like molecular mass, atomic mass, values of physical constants like R, F, NA,) should be given. Final answer without appropriate unit carries zero mark.
  7. For part A and B try to follow the blue print as far as possible, so that due weightage for units can be maintained. In part C
  8. while framing 3 questions for the unit 7 (p-block elements), frame one question each from 15th, 16th and 17th group elements. One mark question for 18th group elements can be framed in Part-A. This division is done to make it easy for the students to learn and attempt these questions.
  9. Numerical problems worth of about 10 marks should be given.
  10. Avoid questions from: i) Drawings involving 3D diagrams ii) Boxed portions of the units given in the text.  iii) The boxed materials with deep yellow bar in the text book are to bring additional life to the topic and are non evaluative. (Please see the IV paragraph of the preface in the part I of the text book).  Questions should not be framed on it  iv)  Questions on numerical data given in the form of appendix, numbered tables containing experimental data and life history of scientists given in the chapters should be avoided.
  11. In Organic chemistry R , Ar , may be restricted to the groups as defined in the syllabus provided.
  12. Frame the questions in such a way to strictly avoid ½ mark evaluation (or value points for ½ mark.)
  13. Questions framed should not be vague and ambiguous. Avoid framing questions for which answers/ printing in the text book is not well defined/ wrong.
