Some students said that the internal choices did not really help. Many students left a 10 mark paper while some were close to tears. “This is just as bad as Physics,” said Namita, a 12th class student, could say about the paper. Many of her friends agreed that the paper was difficult. She also added that he expected a lenient marking scheme for the paper.
Teachers who glanced over the question paper accepted that the question paper was difficult and not of the level of an ‘average student.’ “Ideally a cbse board examination question paper has about 20 to 30 marks worth of simple and basic questions, another 30 to 35 marks of moderately tough and about 15 marks which tests the competence of the candidates. This paper was more on moderate to difficult level,” Aparna, a teacher with 17 years of experience noted. Another expert agreed with the observation. “After the debacle of Physics paper, especially for science stream students, today’s paper would not be a happy memory. The average score in this year’s Maths paper tends to dip to about 50 from last year’s 60 or 65 range.” A very good candidate, as per the expert, would be able to scale above 70 out of 80 in maths paper.
As for the difficulty level of the various sets, the experts pointed out that the questions were more or less the same. As for the regional difference, the reports are still awaited. Last year too, the CBSE Maths Board Examination question paper had about 15 marks worth of difficult questions.
