Further, it is reported that the question paper was on the same pattern as described in the specimen paper. Further students found the paper 'balanced' as almost all questions were from the prescribed syllabus/ units.
It is reported from candidates that the questions based on Mole Concept and Acib-Base topics were comparatively easier than of Electrolysis and Periodic Table topics. A couple of questions were also asked from Chemical Bonding and Analytical Chemistry.
It is reported that a total of 40 questions were asked in the semester 1 paper. Marks of each question were represented in front of the question. Students had to attempt all questions in a time duration of one hour (inclusive of reading time. All questions were compulsory to attempt by the students.

In the Chemistry paper, questions were asked from 6 units- Periodic Table, Properties and Variations of Properties, Chemical Bonding, Study of Acids, Bases & Salts, Analytical Chemistry, Electrolysis, Mole Concept & Stoichiometry.
Ahead of the display of the official answer key, online educator Guinius Classes provides the paper analysis and unofficial solutions of today's Chemistry semester 1 exam. Hence, students have to keep a regular check on the website.
ICSE (Class 10) official answer key, however, will be displayed by the council on its website - cisce.org. It is reminded that the key will be released only after the semester 1 examinations are over.
