It was a pleasant surprise for the students of Class X who wrote their Science paper on Monday. Many students felt that although the question paper was “different”, it was simple and direct.

The paper was simple was apparent by the fact that most students finished writing their exam much before the closing time. “Most of my classmates and I had finished writing our paper with an hour to spare,” said Arjun Andotra of Naval Public School.

Many, however, said they were stumped by the simplicity of the paper as they had given more attention to preparing more complex topics at the cost of “less important sections of the syllabus”.

“There was a 3-mark question in the Biology section of the paper where one had to draw the diagram of a palisade cell of a plant leaf. This was an easy topic that most of us skipped it and gave more importance to topics considered more relevant and scoring like the diagram of heart,” said Rishabh of Sanskriti School.

“The questions on metal extraction, nuclear reactor and heart that are a fixture in the science paper were not there. Instead we got questions of greater weightage from easier topics like genetics,” said Supreet Chadha of Tagore International School.
