ICSE Class 10 Biology Exam Paper Analysis 2023: The 2023 Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) exam season concluded today, March 29, with the Class 10 Biology paper. The exam was conducted by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE), one of the top education bodies in India. The Science course (Code: 52) in ICSE Class 10 consists of three papers: Physics, Chemistry and Biology, and all three are of equal importance and weightage.

Biology is Paper 3 of the science course and is comparatively easier than physics or chemistry, but it’s no walk in the park either. Many students underestimate biology due to its extensive theoretical portion and intriguing concepts, leading to silly mistakes in the exam. The ICSE Class 10 Biology paper is also known for being lengthy. Moreover, biology being the last exam, some students had already relaxed.
