CBSE Class 10 maths paper mix of easy, hard sums

'CBSE, if you agree there can be errors in the question paper or answer keys, you should stop the evaluation process,' tweeted an examinee following the test

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today conducted the term 1 Mathematics examination (basic and standard) for class 10 students. The multiple-choice questions-based exam started at 11:30 AM and concluded at 1 AM, a process during which the examinees had mixed feelings, going by what they told reporters after emerging from the exam centres.

The CBSE gave the examinees additional 20 minutes to read the question paper, as promised earlier. Both standard and basic maths question papers were divided into three sections A, B and C. Section A and B carried 20 questions each, while Section C had 10 questions based on two case studies.

The Times Now website released the answer key for both standard and basic examinations prepared by experts (mostly teachers with years of experience) before it was available on the CBSE site. Students may refer to it and calculate their estimated marks.

CBSE Class 10 maths paper analysis by experts

While a section of students called paper ‘tricky’, principals of several schools said that the paper was ‘balanced’. ” It was a balanced paper, starting with easy questions to boost the morale and confidence of the students.  A significant weightage has been given to chapters which have a continuation in term 2,” NDTV quoted Parveen Shaikh, Principal, Somaiya Schools as saying.

Meanwhile, taking to Twitter, a student has requested the board to stop the evaluation process and release the correct answer key. “CBSE, if you agree that there can be errors in the question paper or answer keys, you should stop the evaluation process or you should release the correct answer for the students. How can u expect us to prepare for next exams under so much stress?” tweeted a student.

A Kendriya Vidyalaya student told a television news channel, “The case study portions were the most difficult one, and the options were also reduced. The sample papers had 8 out of 10 questions, while in the paper today it was 4 out of 5.”

Important notice about answer key

Earlier on Friday, CBSE had asked the examiners to stick to the answer key released by the board while evaluating the OMR sheets filled by students. Issuing a notification, the CBSE had said that all schools under the board must share if there are any observations about the question paper or answer keys with the board.

“Although every possible care is taken by the Board, there may still be a possibility of some ambiguity in questions or discrepancy in answer keys. However, the Board has a well-settled system to address such issues. Therefore, it is informed that the evaluators may check/evaluate the OMRs according to the answer keys provided to them”, the notification read,

“As such, it has already been communicated to schools that if there is an observation about the question paper or answer keys, the same should be sent to the board after the examination. It is also to be noted that the observations or feedback received will be duly considered on the recommendation of subject experts at the time of preparation of so that no student is put to any disadvantage”, it read further.
