How to calculate ICSE English Paper 1 score?
When CISCE conducted the ICSE semester 1 exams in December 2021, students could easily calculate their score, thereafter. This was because the paper was entirely objective in nature, consisting of multiple-choice questions. The situation in semester 2 is, however, different as today’s paper contained a combination of objective and subjective questions.
Although objective questions have straightforward questions, subjective questions depend on the points covered. Each such answer needs to cover the essential points invariably, fetching full marks. Furthermore, in a subject like English, the ability to form proper sentences, grammar usage, etc will also be considered.
All such points have been covered in video-based solutions uploaded by coaching institutes. Hence, while watching the ICSE Semester 2 English Answer Key video, students must jot down all the important points and judge their answers, accordingly.
