Resonance experts feel that all subjects were of similar difficulty level, while mathematics was on tougher side compared with chemistry & physics. While around 148 Marks can be considered easy overall, 160 marks are relatively difficult and 52 marks are considered difficult by Resonance Team.

Overall, it is felt that while paper is moderate, the cut-off would decrease because of increase in number of seats from 1,50,000 to 2,00,000.
