The students had a mixed reaction to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 10 science examination that was held on Wednesday. Some students said the paper was easy and some said it was difficult.
Vibhore Gaur, a student of Class 10 said, “The paper was easy and set on the expected lines as I had studied the previous years’ question papers along with a few sample papers. They helped me a lot.”
Saawan Kapoor, another Class 10 student, said, “Science is not my strong subject. I found the paper too difficult for even attempting. Many questions were tricky. I almost managed to complete the paper on time; I believe many students might have missed their paper.”
Another student Arjun Bisht said, “The three-mark questions in the paper were easy. There were a few questions in section E which were somehow difficult to attempt as they required a conceptual understanding of the subject.”
Roshni Malhotra, a Chandigarh-based science tutor, said, “Physics questions were moderately difficult; some students were unhappy with the biology section. Students with poor math skills found physics tougher.”
Poonam Kapur, another teacher based in Chandigarh, said, “The paper was fine. Students managed to finish it in time, however, the difficulty level of certain questions demanded students to require Higher Order Thinking Skills.
