Teachers and Students Find English CBSE Class X: The Tribune India Paper Difficult
Doraha, December 11
Teachers and students complained that today’s CBSE Class X English test was long and complex. They asked the board for adequate compensation for the paper.
Twenty percent of the paper was intended for the glossy grade only. The reading section needed real intelligence. Also, lack of time was another concern of good students. Thus, the students did not leave school happy. Grace marks should be awarded to students. – Suzi George, Principal, Green Grove School, Mohanpur
Students complained that the reading section was beyond their comprehension. Since this was the very first question in the diary, the students got stuck there. The literature part also left them dismayed as the questions were by no means straightforward. They were confusing and the options were pretty close together. In some questions, more than one option may be considered correct.
“The final answer key, which must be put in place by the CBSE, should be published after careful consideration. Questions with more than one correct option should be duly taken into account in the assessment of documents by the examiners. After all, these are Class X exams and no joke. The questionnaire was also long. On the one hand, the reading part turned out to be difficult and on the other, several correct options in many questions based on the literature made us shiver all the more, ”said a candidate from a local school.
“All my hopes of getting over 90% are gone. The board should not play with the future of the students. Our entire career depends on Class X grades, ”said another student.
The topper from a local school shared, “I was disappointed when I saw the newspaper. When we aim for the first position, the loss of even a fraction of a note is worth hundreds. This loss can only be compensated by grace points.
Teachers at various schools have expressed resentment towards the paper maker, who ignored the standard of the students. “Such a hardness of the papermaker should not be tolerated. The candidates suffered. The students had burned midnight oil. They should receive marks of grace, ”said one teacher.
Tagore International Senior Secondary School, Sahnewal General Manager BK Aneja said: “The questionnaire in English was long and complex. The options were quite confusing in the reading and literature section. There were grammatical errors in the literature section. The options were incomplete for questions 13 and 14. Section C – the literature was delicate and the options were very close. Overall, it was not a balanced document. The board should consider the paper for the tokens of grace.
The principal of Green Grove School in Mohanpur, Suzi George, said: “20% of the paper was only for the glossy grade. The reading section needed real intelligence.
