Abhishek a science student who appeared for the biology paper exam at Miller High School in Patna said, “The questions were easy. I could solve all of them as I was prepared. Short answer type questions carrying two marks were easy and saved a lot of time.”
MP Trivedi of Patna science College said, “The questions of biology was very easy but the question paper did not follow the exam pattern. The paper was unbalanced gave priority only to a few topics and did not touch many. The question paper was very different from the blueprint.”
Raushan Kumar another student who took philosophy paper in arts said, “The questions were easier than expected. I am happy that the exams have started well with an easy paper. I am more confident for next paper.”
With new changes in the OMR sheet candidates seemed very happy. From this year, candidates don’t have to colour the circles of OMR sheets for filling their name, roll number, roll code etc. The OMR sheet has pre-printed names , roll number, roll codes and subject code which saves alot of time for the candidates.
“Earlier we were worried as colouring those OMR circles is a very crucial task. Any error can lead to rejection of our answer sheets. But this change in OMR sheet has saved our time and reduced the tension,” said Puja Kumari another candidate.
