Q.1: What is Karnataka PUC?
The full-form of Karnataka PUC is a pre-university course which is basically an intermediate (10+2) course. The duration of this course is 2 years and it is organised by the state of Karnataka at the end of the second year of PUC for university admissions.
Q.2: Which group should I opt-in Karnataka PUC for engineering?
First of all, you need to be clear about your interests and career goals. One needs to analyse their interests, strengths and weaknesses.
Those who have a keen interest in engineering could enrol themselves for PCM or PCMC/PCME.
Now addressing the question of choice between PCMC & PCME, PCMC can be preferred over PCME.
Under PCME your knowledge is going to be limited to electronics whereas in PCMC you will be able to learn about computers as well as essential parts of electronics.
Someone who is invested in learning computer science is eventually learning everything about electronic parts.
Also, in case of job opportunities, the PCMC course under PUC Karnataka might help in procuring a good job as this course offers interesting options for higher studies and ensures a bright career in the future.
Q.3: What is the difference between 11th and 12th CBSE and Karnataka PUC?
Now there is no difference between 11th & 12th CBSE and Karnataka PUC in terms of the syllabus as Karnataka state board also follows NCERT textbooks like CBSE. The difference lies in the exam patterns of both CBSE and PUC.
The PUC board examinations are considered easier in comparison to CBSE board as it offers broad concepts. Those who want to give competitive exams in future, CBSE syllabus might work in favour of them as it offers a deeper understanding of every subject and the syllabus of JEE main is also covered in NCERT.
If one wants to choose between the 2 then make sure you have a clear idea about what you want to do after 12th.

The Karnataka PUC 1 sample question papers give proper assistance to all the aspiring students and help them in preparing effectively for the examination by giving them a basic idea about the pattern and the marking scheme that is followed. This type of intervention provides the students with a definitive path to prepare and makes them more confident as the students are ultimately familiar with the type of questions that would be asked. The first PUC sample questions also help the students in revising the whole syllabus before the examination. The ideal time to start solving the model papers for 1st PUC Karnataka Board is 2-3 weeks before the exam date.
These questions also help the students by providing an insight into the number of questions that one can expect from a chapter so that one can study smartly. Self-evaluation will help the students in identifying the areas in which they need more practice.
Q.6: What are the differences in terms of content between the NCERT books prescribed by the Karnataka PUC board and the NCERT books prescribed by the CBSE?
Karnataka PUC Board and CBSE, both have the same syllabus. The difference lies between the pattern questions during the board exam. The paper by CBSE is tough in comparison to the PUC board as CBSE challenges the students to use various formulas and concepts. The exams by Karnataka PUC board have a set pattern and mostly the questions are asked exactly the same from the NCERT. CBSE follows no set pattern and there is no guarantee if the questions will be from NCERT book or not. It is because of this difference that the people from CBSE usually are able to perform well in competitive exams. They are able to perform well due to clarity of concepts which is quite unlike the PU board.
Q.7: Which is the best reference book for computer science in the 2nd PUC Karnataka?
You have to make sure that you are thoroughly going through NCERT as no Karnataka PUC reference book, in particular, can be considered or referred to. You can consider Oswaal Books' Karnataka PUC sample question papers to prepare for the same which are available on the board’s official website.

It is strongly recommended to all the students to double-check before applying for revaluation as there is a possibility that you may lose or gain marks as well. Marks if lost, cannot be retained as there is no such provision. So, you should better take proper precautions beforehand.
However, the students who have not passed the revaluation can apply for the supplementary exam as well.

The students who passed with distinction were able to score 510 or above. From this, we can deduce that students who scored 85% or above were considered to be passing with distinction.
