Students on the second day of Common Entrance Test (CET) found Physics paper a tough nut to crack and Chemistry a cakewalk.

More questions based on formula and less of theory-based questions rendered the paper comparatively tough, according to students.

“Around 60 per cent of the questions were problems which required thorough application of formulae while the rest were of very direct nature and could be answered with ease,” Manoj Koli, a student said. As a result, students had to face problem with time management.

 “Ideally one needs to spend one minute for each question to be able to answer all 60 questions. I spent more than three minutes for most of the questions,” said Sinchana from Maharani Ammanni College, Malleswaram.

Subject experts too opined that Physics paper was a bit tough. According to experts at the ACE Creative Learning, there were a few tricky questions in the paper that required the students to invest considerable time in solving the problems. The answer options given to two questions were incorrect and two more questions had incomplete information, experts said.

However, Chemistry paper in the afternoon session seemed to be easy.

“I felt a bit let down after the Physics exam in the morning, but the Chemistry paper was just fine. I hope this will contribute to an increase in the aggregate score,” said Rakshita, who appeared for the examination at Vijaya College.

Professor G K Shivaprakash of BASE Tutorials said the Chemistry questions were easy. Except two questions that were found to be ambiguous and another where the options provided were not correct, the paper was fine. Seventeen questions were from first PU syllabus and eight were numerical type questions, he added.
