'All Sets Of Same Difficulty Level' Say Experts About Class 10 Science Paper. Students Beg To Differ.
CBSE concluded class 10 science paper today. While experts called the paper easy, students had mixed response to different sets of questions.
The verdict on CBSE class 10 Science question paper is out. Subject-matter experts claimed the paper to be easy. Students, however, differed and said that different sets were of different difficulty level.
Experts said that section-wise, Physics and Chemistry section was easier in comparison to Biology. Though, there were some questions which were indirect, overall the paper was easy enough to be attempted completely by an average student.
We spoke to subject matter experts, Mrs. Hemalatha Srinivas TGT Chemistry, Mrs. Priyanka Batra TGT Physics, Mrs. Monika Rana TGT Biology, and Mrs. Bhawna Srivastav TGT Biology from Army Public School, Delhi Cantt. about their take on today's class 10 Science question paper.
The teachers in unison said that the paper was easy and students were happy with the paper.
Mrs. Hemalatha Srinivas and Mrs. Priyanka Batra said that the paper was a little tricky. Numerical questions in Physics section were easy. Students were quite content with physics and found chemistry section to be moderately easy except one 3 mark and one question in section E.
Mrs. Monika Rana and Mrs. Bhawna Srivastav said that the questions from Biology section involved application of concepts. One 5 mark question was from last year's board exam question paper.
The teachers said that most of the questions were from NCERT and and the difficulty level was same for all the sets.
Some students on social media had a different review for the question paper. Students were miffed with the different questions in different sets. Students said that on account of different questions, the different question sets also had varying degrees of difficulty level.

#cbse class 10th science paper was bit annoying— Vinay Rawat (@_Vinay_Rawat_) March 13, 2019
I studied day n night
But some questions were of higher order thinking in set 2
The difficulty level of all sets should be same ...
Same thing happened in maths....
I will be grateful if #cbse will take some strong action ....
Why does CBSE give different degree of difficulty questions in all 3 sets...the set C of science paper was most difficult..how does CBSE compensate for such students..questions shud be same in all sets and can be jumbled...else how will all kids be on same platform#cbseexams2019— Arun Jaggi (@arunsinghjaggi) March 13, 2019
The reaction was, however, mixed with some student saying that questions asked were very run-of-the-mill stuff while some complained of an out-of-syllabus questions.

Question no. 3 of Set 3 has the presbyopia's correction,
i.e. diagram of bifocal lens out of syllabus.
Since the CBSE board exams have started, students have repeatedly complained of lengthy question papers and disparity in difficulty level of different sets of question paper.
