THE MP Board of Secondary Education examination today began with a ‘Feel Good’ effect all over the State. The students were happy after completing their question papers.
More than 15,000 students took the exam in Bhopal alone. After completing their exam, most of the students felt satisfaction over question papers. “I am expecting above 90 per cent marks”, said Nitin of Nalanda Public School. He appeared in Physics paper. Further he said that the paper was quite easy.
According to the overall report received from various centres across the State, there was no complaint of copying or mass copying. Commissioner DPI, L S Baghel, along with Joint Director K K Pandey visited various centres in Jabalpur district.
According to the sources, Baghel found that a number of students who had signed in Hindi on their exam application forms were signing in English. Taking action, he directed the officials to ask the students to sign the same signature as they did in their forms.
In the State capital, a morning drizzle helped students against the scorching heat. “The drizzle was good, as it made the atmosphere cool”, Sanjay, a student at Subhash School centre, said.
The students were happy for the board’s decision that paper will be distributed 15 minutes before the schedule time. “I got the paper 15 minutes before the schedule time. It helped me a lot in understanding the questions easily”, said Shailendra Gajbhiye who appeared in the Hindi vocational paper.
However, some high school students who will appear in the correspondence course from March 2 were in panic, as they had not received their admission cards. Several students were questioning the officials at Model School. High school students of regular courses will appear in the exam from March 2.
Confusion in physics paper
ONCE AGAIN, MP Board of Secondary Education posed problems for the students appearing in the higher secondary exam that began today. In the B-2 set of Physics paper, there was confusion for students in Question No. 18. In the Hindi version of the said question, the word ‘Rahit’ baffled the students as the English version of the same question mention it ‘With’ which changed the meaning.
The students complained that they were not told the correct word. However, the students who knew that the correct word should be ‘without’ attempted the question and others left it.
CBSE exams also begin
THE CENTRAL Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) exams also began in the schools of the City affiliated to the board. The students of Class XII appeared in English paper which was common for all streams. The students said they the 15 minutes of extra time this year given by the CBSE did not make much difference. They said it was tough paper, contrary to expectations .
