If the Physics exam was not enough to faze class 12 students on Monday, the earthquake did the bit.

Many students, who appeared for the Board exam on Monday, complained that they could not complete the already lengthy exam due to the chaos created by the earthquake that shook the city when half-an-hour was left for the exam to get over.

But students maintained that the Physics exam was not difficult.

“Though a little lengthy, the examination was easy. Anyone who had thoroughly studies the NCERT book will do well. The three-mark questions required some thought and were time consuming,” said Shivam Tickoo, a student at Gyan Bharti School, Saket.

However, not everyone felt the same.

“We all were taken aback by the tremor. The windows panes were rattling. Though the tremor lasted for only 10 seconds, it took us almost 10 minutes to get back to writing. I wish we had been given extra time,” said Kavita Gupta, a student at DPS RK Puram.

According to her, many students could not complete their paper.
