Class 12 students of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) who took their chemistry exam on Saturday said it was the easiest of all the papers so far.

It had a lot of numerical questions and most were directly from the textbooks. Many students submitted their answer scripts much before time. Teachers too said it was the easiest chemistry paper set by the CBSE in recent times.

“The chemistry paper was the easiest so far. I had lost all hope after the mathematics paper since it was a tough one. But I am glad that they compensated for it with the chemistry paper. I am hoping for a good result,” said Yash Gupta, student of DAV Public School.

“I expected the chemistry paper to be easy this year and that is exactly how it was. Our school had prepared us for a paper that was much more difficult than what we got. It was a balanced one, I turned in my answer script an hour early,” said Anchal Shah, a student of Delhi Public School, Sector 45.

Ishan Mehra, a student of Suncity World School, said the questions were from the NCERT syllabus itself and answering them was a cakewalk.

“All my classmates were pleased with the question paper,” said Neha Singh of Rotary Public School.

The students exiting the exam venues were content with the paper and their work. Teachers too said most of the questions were the those that were discussed and practised in the classroom.

Students can now heave a sigh of relief as the “difficult exams” are over. What remains is the physical education paper scheduled for next month.

But the tension doesn’t end there as now students will begin their preparation for the “tough to crack” IIT-JEE exam on April 2.
