Even those who were not “too comfortable” with the language found the paper to be easy. “I was certain that I will not be able to answer more than 80% of the questions within the stipulated time. But I completed all questions 10 minutes before time,” Kushal Nagar, a class 12 student of Lord Mahavira School, said.
His classmate Manish Yadav echoed his view and said the paper to “easy”.
Class 10 student Deepak Kumar from Sanjay Balvidyalaya, Ram Diwakar from DAV School and Raj Bhat from Delhi Public School said on Monday, there was no class 10 exam. Their D-Day is on Tuesday. But for students of class 10 vocational courses, the exams started on Monday.

Further, students have been trained to practice yoga for two minutes before each exam to relieve stress,” Jasmine Gandhi,director,Billabong High International School, said.
