Weightage for different chapters change from time to time but on average they remain the same. 8 marks are allotted for the first chapter i.e, relations and functions. 10 marks for the second chapter i.e, algebra. 17 marks for the third chapter i.e, calculus and 5 marks for linear programming. Total of 40 marks for the four chapters. As you can observe, the highest marks are allotted for calculus, students are supposed to prioritise this chapter and practice it well.

2. What are the topics and subtopics of relations and functions, algebra in the CBSE Class 12 Maths Exam?

4. What are internal and external assessments in the CBSE Class 12 Maths Exam?

The entire term paper is of 50 marks. An internal assessment by the faculty carries 10 marks and the remaining 40 marks are evaluated in external Examination. Out of the 10 marks allotted for internal assessment, 5 marks are assessed for periodic tests and the rest 5 marks are assessed for mathematics record, term-end assessment activity and viva. To know more about these activities students can refer to lab manuals. Any 4 activities in term 1 and another 4 activities in term 2 should be performed. These activities are to be taken from the lab manual. 3 marks are allotted for the activities and 2 marks for the viva. Students have to carefully do their activities to score well in the internal assessment and they can take their senior’s help for the same.
