## Karnataka Board 2nd PUC Physics Blueprint

The 3 hours 15 minutes question paper of class 12 Physics of Karnataka Board is of total 70 marks. To get an idea about the weightage of the distribution of marks over different dimensions of the question paper like the objective, units/ chapters, forms of questions, level of difficulty and so on, students can refer to the Physics Blueprint below:

From the 2nd PUC Physics Blueprint, it is seen that about 40% of the total marks are allotted to knowledge, 30% to understanding, 20% to application and 10% to skill.

## A. Weightage to Objectives:

 Objective Weightage Marks Knowledge 40% 43/105 Understanding 30% 31/105 Application 20% 21/105 Skill 10% 10/105
Questions are asked from the 15 chapters under the 10 units of the textbook. From the below image it is evident that most marks are allotted to the 3rd chapter, Current Electricity.

## B. Weightage to content/subject units:

 Unit No. Chapter No. Topic No. of Hours Marks I 1 Electric Charges and Fields 9 8 II 2 Electrostatic Potential and Capacitance 9 8 III 3 Current Electricity 15 13 IV 4 Moving Charges and Magnetism 10 9 V 5 Magnetism and Matter 8 7 6 Electromagnetic Induction 7 6 VI 7 Alternating Current 8 7 8 Electromagnetic Waves 2 2 VII 9 Ray Optics and Optical Instruments 9 8 VIII 10 Wave Optics 9 8 IX 11 Dual Nature of Radiation And Matter 6 5 12 Atoms 5 5 X 13 Nuclei 7 6 14 Semiconductor Electronics 12 10 15 Communication Systems 4 3 TOTAL 120 105

## C. Weightage to forms of Questions:

 Part Question Main Type of questions Marks Number of questions to be set Number of questions to be answered A I Very short answer(VSA) 1 10 10 B II Short answer(SA1) 2 8 5 C III Short answer(SA2) 3 8 5 D IV Long answer(LA) 5 3 2 V Long answer(LA) 5 3 2 VI Numerical Problems(NP) 5 5 3
Note:
1. Questions in IV Main must be set from Unit I to V.
2. Questions in V Main must be set from Unit VI to X.
3. Questions in VI Main must be set such that one Numerical Problem is from every 2 successive units.

## D. Weightage to level of difficulty:

 Level Weightage Marks Easy 40% 43/105 Average 40% 42/105
