Mathematics jinx haunts CBSE Class 10 students


New Delhi: Thousands of students sat for their Class 10 Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Mathematics examination at centres across the country and abroad on Saturday. Many found the paper "tough" while others felt the questions were "indirect".

Many students at an exam centre here walked out with tired frowns on their faces.

"The paper was tough. I just about managed to finish it," said Amandeep Mohla, a Class 10 student of Army Public School, Dhaula Kuan.

Another student Akhand Singh found the paper very application based.

"There were few standard questions, the paper was very application based," Singh said.

Himani Sagar of the Daisy Day Public School, whose exam centre was in the Mother's International School at Sri Aurobindo Marg, said many questions were indirect.

"I thankfully remembered my theorems and formulae, so was able to attempt all indirect questions," said Sagar.

This year over 1.45 million students are sitting for the board examinations at over 5,000 centres spread across the country and abroad. Of them, 824,438 students are Class 10 students and 637,578 students are of Class 12.

Several medical and engineering coaching institutes, hoping to woo prospective clients, had hung up colourful banners wishing the students good luck and distributing pens at centres. IANS
