The CBSE Class 12 chemistry paper on Thursday gave students a reason to smile as it was an easy and happy change after the horror of last exam, physics. Students were seen satisfied with the length of the question paper and were able to complete the exam well in time.
Students were under great pressure after the physics exam on March 9 as they found the paper to be of a completely different format which made the students and teacher panic.
"I am feeling so relaxed now as the paper was really easy and nothing was out of syllabus and exactly according to the sample papers. I was expecting the paper to be just as twisted and difficult as the physics exam but fortunately it didn't happen this time," said Brijesh Aggarwal, a Class 12 student.
Kavita Das, principal of St John's High School said though this paper was very easy and simple, the students should have been given more time between the two science exams.
"It is really difficult for the students to prepare well within a mere two-day gap between two science subjects and the board should have taken a note of it," she said.
A few parents complained about the lack of security outside the gates of the centres as they saw a few men roaming around the school on bikes and passing lewd comments at women.
"I think one policeman is not enough outside the centres and they should increase the number so as to control bad elements," said Gurmeet Kaur, a parent.
