CBSE exams begin on a happy note for students

The class X and XII CBSE examinations began on a happy note on Thursday.

The class X students had a 30-mark paper on information technology. Students found the one-hour paper easy and a good start to their board examinations. “I had seen last year’s question paper and there were a few out-of-syllabus questions in it. I was worried because of that. But the exam was easy. Anyone who had studied the portions properly would have done well,” said Oindrila Rakshit, a Class X student in the city.

Abhijnan Bajpai, another class X student, echoed the opinion. “It was a straightforward question paper. Every year, there are a few questions which are not in the syllabus. This year too, we anticipated such a paper, but we were surprised to see that the questions were only from what we had been taught,” he said.

The class XII students began this year’s exam session with a three-hour English paper.  “There is always a lot of hype surrounding board exams, but writing the first paper dispelled all our fears. The difficulty level was average and there were no out-of-syllabus questions,” said Tarush Awashti, a class XII student of Delhi Public School (East). Manila Carvalho, principal of DPS (East), said students  were able to finish answering the paper well within time.
