CBSE concluded the class 10 board examination for Kannada on March 9. After the exam was over several students took to twitter to complain about out of syllabus questions in the question paper. While the total marks attributed to out-of-syllabus questions reported by students is varied, the consensus remains that there were several out-of-syllabus questions.
"CBSE is obtaining expert advice and will take a considered view before evaluation based on observations of experts, to safeguard the interests of students as per the standard protocol already notified and displayed on the official website," said the Board to NDTV, today.
Students, meanwhile, have asked the board to take necessary steps and provide grace marks.
Dear @PrakashJavdekar ji, today CBSE 10th std #Kannada exams were conducted. Seems some questions totalling 15 marks were from out of the syllabus. Students were asked to write the qn numbers & leave the answer blank. Students were told they will get 15 marks for these qns. FYI.— VADIRAJ C S ???????? (@vschanna) March 9, 2019

@nanuramu CBSE Kannada exam for 10th std had about 20 marks out-of-syllabus today! Wonder who and how such papers get set by the board? Is Kannada given such least importance by @CBSEINDIA? @CBSEINDIA how will you justify your act?— Sandhya Sudhindra (@Sandhyaksgmail1) March 9, 2019

CBSE has been in hot waters ever since the board examinations have started. Earlier, class 12 students of science stream complained of a lengthy question paper which could not be completed in the designated 3 hours duration.
Class 12 students, had to face a similar situation in case of English question paper. Though questions were not out of syllabus but the board had failed to provide adequate options for some long-answer questions.
There are two novels prescribed for class 12 students and students were instructed to prepare any one. However, in the exam questions were asked from both the texts without the option to choose any one. This posed problem for students who had either prepared only one text or were taught only one of the two texts in school.
