Finding the CBSE Physics question paper of Class 12 conducted on Monday, drastically off-track from the previous year's pattern, the teachers from various government schools in Chandigarh, held a meeting in Sector 16 on Monday to discuss the abrupt change in the exam pattern.
Both students and teachers have complained that not only the question paper was difficult but significantly lengthy which is against the usual pattern that has been followed by the board during the previous years. Due to these factors, many students could not complete the paper in stipulated time. They also alleged that most of the three marks questions in all the three sets were completely out of sync of the weightage.
Chhavi Chopra, a physics tutor from the city said, “The students are absolutely shattered and depressed after attempting the exam. Even the students from city’s top schools complained of facing difficulty in attempting the whole paper due to the lack of time and found most of the questions beyond their comprehension.”
As a remedial measure, the teachers are now demanding that the CBSE should conduct the exam again or give grace marks to all the students irrespective of whether questions were attempted or not.
Teachers also insist that the CBSE should stick to its usual pattern or release sample papers before following a modified pattern so that the students and teachers get a fair idea of the kind of changes being incorporated in a particular paper.
