CBSE News: CBSE Class 12 Math Question Paper 2016 has created tension and anxiety among students and parent.
The year 2016 hasn’t started well for the students of Class 12th who recently appeared for their CBSE maths exam. Many students were in complete tears and grief after appearing for their Class 12 Math Question Paper 2016. According to students and teachers, this year’s maths exam was very tough.
“Even though we were prepared for a challenging paper, this was unexpectedly tough. Most of us are trying to put this behind us and prepare for our accountancy papers on March 17,” said L. Aditya, a student from Chennai.
Many students have started petition campaign on change.org, to appeal to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for leniency while doing the evaluation. Many students took to sharing their grievances on Facebook and urged other students to post on the forums for CBSE to take note.
The issue was raised in the Parliament on the 15th of March by K C Venugopal (Cong), who said that the CBSE question paper had left many students in tears. “It was very lengthy. Maximum questions were from outside the syllabus. It was reported that questions were tricky…Students found it difficult to complete the exam on time,” he said during Zero Hour.
N K Premchandran of RSP said tens of thousands of CBSE students were “adversely affected” by the mathematics paper as 80 per cent of the questions were very difficult and also out of syllabus.
Complaints have poured in from across the country to online forums. CBSE, which has about 20,000 affiliated schools across India, is yet to react on the issue.
The Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Venkaiah Naidu, on Wednesday suggested that the Centre may carry out an investigation into complaints of CBSE Class 12 students that their maths exam was ‘tough and lengthy’.
In 2015, the Board had to review the Maths paper after similar complaints, and had also considered giving a relaxation in the marking for the paper.
