After hearing complaints from several board exam aspirants and teachers across the country who had tried grade 12 mathematics exam, conducted this year central board of secondary education (CBSE) a meeting with some of the affiliated school.
Then it was reported that the Board may consider doing the checking papers milder. The "improvement paper" can also be considered, but no official information about the same have come up so far.
CBSE also confirmed that the question paper, but was unusual, but not of the curriculum. It was a program based questions papers and those with thorough knowledge and higher order thinking skills can answer.
Many students were discouraged as they could not complete the question paper since it was too long, they said. Also could the changes in paper pattern not be well understood by students. Many also agreed that exam was much harder than physics paper, this time.
There were a total of 29 questions in three parts, namely A, B and C.
Part A: 10 Questions: 1 mark each
Part B: 12 questions: 4 marks each
Part C: 7 Questions: 6 marks each
High scores on the board exam help students to achieve a high cut, which in turn acts as an aid to get through to the top colleges of the nation.
