CBSE Class 12 Biology Paper Analysis: 

According to Shalini Almadi, Senior Coordinator Biology at Vidyagyan School, the Biology exam of 2024 was of moderate difficulty level. The questions adhered to the prescribed syllabus and pattern outlined by the CBSE. While most questions demanded critical thinking and application of concepts, some students found the case studies ambiguous, leading to confusion. However, despite these challenges, the paper maintained a balanced approach, encompassing various aspects of the subject matter.

Sujata, PGT Biology at KIIT World School Gurugram, stated that the exam featured a mix of Objective Type Questions, including Assertion and Reason Questions in Section A, testing students' comprehension and recall abilities. Section B contained relatively easier questions, while Section C presented a blend of theoretical and application-based inquiries, including analytical questions of moderate complexity. Section D included two case-based questions, which were easy to solve. Section E incorporated Competency Based Questions emphasizing application and analysis concepts.
