Computer Science

9th - Computer Science

9th class Computer Science is not a Compulsory subject for the matric students of science group both in Punjab and federal boards; you have a choice in two subjects biology and computer science. Computer Science is necessary for those students who want to go to pursue their career in computer sciences field, otherwise you can select Biology in 9th class. This study course will help you in your future educational career like in (Pre Eng.),, and also in practical professional career. I am going to mention this course categorically. Here is the outline which will give you an overview pertaining to 9th class chemistry. 1. Who should study this course? 2. Course of 9th class Computer Science? 3. Paper pattern of 9th class Computer Science for Punjab board students? 4. Paper attempting methodology for Punjab board? 5. Paper pattern of the 9th class biology for federal board students? 6. Paper attempting methodology for federal board? 7. Why study this course?

Subject Details

Who Should Study This Course?

The students of elementary education who want to study in science group in their Matriculation; this subject is not a compulsory course for them. If you want to do (pre Medical) in next so you will have to choose Biology otherwise you can choose Computer Science. In both Punjab and Federal board this subject is taught as a major subject. There is a little bit difference between both boards about this subject in marks distribution and paper pattern.


What is 9th Class Computer Science

There are Seven Chapters in this course which is briefly described in the course books in both boards. In this course students learn complete basic level of Computer. Each chapter consists on complete information; Student will learn from definition to all formulas covering history, branches and many more pertaining to this subject. Here are the course chapters:


1)    Introduction to Computer Science

2)    Computer Components

3)    Input /Output Devices

4)    Storage Devices

5)    Data Representation

6)    Boolean Algebra

7)    Computer Software



Paper Pattern of 9th Class Computer Science for Punjab Board Students

As I mentioned there is a little bit difference of paper pattern in both boards. But firstly I will discuss the Punjab board Paper Pattern.

In Punjab board total marks of this subject are 50 (fifty). There are Two Portions of this course including Subjective and Objective. First I will discuss Objective Portion, the Objective Portion consist on 10 (ten) MCQS which has to be attempted in Fifteen minutes. Every single question has to be attempted by filling the circle completely.

The next portion is subjective portion which consists on Short Questions and Long Questions. In this section short questions are further divided into three Sub Sections. In every sub section there are 6 (six) Questions in which student has to attempt any four Questions. Each question carries equal marks which is 2(two) marks per Question.

In the next subjective portion there are Three Long Questions. The student has to attempt Any Two questions. Each question carried eight (8) marks. Marks division is following:


·         Objective types (MCQs)         = 10 marks

·         Short Questions                        = 24 marks

·         Long Questions (Subjective)  = 16 marks

·         Total Marks                                = 50 marks

·         Practical (9th + 10th )                 = 50 marks



How to Attempt Paper:

The students are advised firstly read the objective portion carefully. There is no need to tick early in haste take your time to understand the question and be sure of the answer before filling that circle. Read the whole objective paper. Read the question carefully and tick the relevant answer by filling the right circle accurately.

The subjective portion also requires a careful view and understanding before being attempted. Read the short questions and write the answers of those questions about which you know properly. Do not write the answer of the question about which you do not know of. No need to attempt more than five questions. You also need to know that short question’s answer must be a brief one consisting upon roughly 30 to 50 words.

The methodology is same in attempting the long questions section. There are three questions in the long questions portion in which student has to attempt to any two questions. Give the answers of those questions on which you have the grip properly. Give the answer according to question.


Paper Pattern of the 9th Class Computer Science for Federal Board

In Federal board the computer science paper has the three sections A, B, and C. The section A is consists on Multiple Choice Questions. There are 12 (twelve) questions in this portion which student has to attempt.

The next section is section B, which consists upon Short Questions. There are 13 thirteen Short Questions and each student must attempt Eleven (9) Questions which should have a brief and relevant answer comprising on Three to Four Lines per answer. The Section C consists upon Long Questions. In this section there are total Three Questions from which a student has to attempt two from the total of Three Questions. Each question has Two Sub Questions and each sub question has 4 four marks. In this way there are total 16 marks of the Subjective portion 39 of which are awarded by Short Questions and multiple choice Questions. Completing a total of 55 marks in all Three Sections (A, B, C).


·         Objective (MCQs)      = 12 marks

·         Short Question            = 27 marks

·         Long Questions           = 12 marks

·         Total marks                   = 55 marks



How to Attempt Paper:

The paper attempting methodology of the Federal board is also same just like the Punjab board. Student has to read the paper carefully. No need to hurry in attempting the questions. Simply give the answers of the question which you know properly. Give the answers accurately. This methodology of focus, carefulness and providing relevant and accurate answers goes to the objective part too.


Why Should We Study this Course?

This subject is informative for the students of the science group who wants to go to computer engineering field. Students who want to pursue their career in Computer Science they should consider this subject to get a basic know how of this course by studying this subject. This course has the basic and complete knowledge pertaining to computer science.
