That will be somehow 53%. Now come to Physics and Chemistry with the only theory it will be 30 to 35 marks each subject so roughly it will be
70 to 75 percent so it's difficult to score 80% but you can try with a few more topics such as Physics the Derivation and important numerical from Optics and EM theory along with the important reactions and numerical from Chemistry make sure to cover all the naming reactions from organic Chemistry. If are sure with practical marks and trying more with the above-mentioned topics, surely you can score 80 or above. All the best!
