The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had set up an expert committee to review the class XII board mathematics paper. Now, parents and students want the same for the physics paper too.

Arguing that the physics paper was equally tough and lengthy as the mathematics one, certain parents have also written to the CBSE in this regard.

The physics examination was held on March 9.

One of the parent, Sanjukta Mishra, said; “The question paper was not only tricky but it was too lengthy. A reasonably good student has a genuine aspiration to attempt all questions in a board examination. But large numbers of students have not been able to complete the paper as it was unusually long.”

Parents have also demanded re-examination of the physics paper and inquiry be conducted on the difficulty level of the paper.

According to sources, some parents are also deliberating on filing a public interest litigation, if the CBSE fails to announce corrective measures.

It is being claimed that the physics paper was out of syllabus with specific reference to question number — 20 (ii) of Set-2. Also considered a major topic — Logic Gates, as per the sample paper was not even used in the question paper.

“The newly added supplementary materials were not tested, then why give it? The most probable questions were not asked. Bulk of the questions were application-based and we did not get the time to think about the questions,” said Kartik Gill, a student of St Columba’s School.
