This year has not thrown any surprises for students, with all papers being relatively easy compared to the previous years.

Candidates coming out of the physics exam during the morning session said they found the examination pretty easy. “Physics was easy but chemistry was even better. I don't think there were any questions out of syllabus,” said Kajal Gupta from Deeksha College.

Ramya of St Annes said she found the paper quite easy. “Compared to the mathematics paper yesterday (Wednesday), these papers were quite easy,” she said. Rakesh M from Cathedral PU College also concurred and said he found ample time to answer the questions. “Physics was good. There were a lot of direct questions. I didn't need elaborate methods to solve them,” said Roshan Guha from Sindhu High School, Hebbal.

On Chemistry, candidates expressed surprise that there were a lot of questions from I PU. "Chemistry had a lot of questions from I PU portions. There were 15 to 20 of them," said Divya Ramani from Mount Carmel College.

“There were a lot of questions from previous years’ question papers in chemistry and so it was manageable,” said Sasha Almeda, also from Mount Carmel. “Chemistry was easy, at least easier than maths”, said Sourabh Jain, from Vijaya College.

The results of the examination are scheduled to be announced on May 27, although the results may be delayed if CBSE and ICSE results are not announced before that date.
