“The Physics paper was the toughest among all the states in the southern zone, the Chennai and the Kerala Management Association will send a letter after a proper review of question papers from students and teachers. The letter will be sent to CBSE chairperson soon asking a lenient checking of question papers,” president of Kerala CBSE school’s Management Association Ibrahim Khan told indianexpress.com.
Gulfam Ahmed, Head of the Physics Department, Vidyagyan Leadership Academy, UP, said, “The Physics paper was not for the average candidates. Every question asked for an explanation, and you cannot just answer the question easily.” “The question numbers 6, 11, 15, 18 and 22 were very long as the students have to answer the questions with examples,” he said.
The students also took to social media asking lenient checking. A campaign has been started through change.org for the same.
“Respected @PrakashJavdekar @cbseindia29 @HRDMinistry please re-conduct the physics examination, it’s your duty to take action but you are not responding,” tweeted Mahima, a 12th Class student.
“#cbsephysics.. please re-conduct the paper of physics. if CBSE can’t conduct the paper again then plz don’t divide the mark’s chapterwise next time…coz CBSE has lost the ability to properly distribute marks in question paper!!!,” Mahira Hasan Karim, another student, tweeted.
“Two similar questions in set 2 of paper. This shows that the sets were not at all balanced, set 1 was tougher than set 2 which was tougher than set 3. How can one possibly compare the results of the students? tweeted another student.
