CBSE conducted the Physics exam for class 12 students on March 5. Immediately after the examination, students took to twitter to complain of a tough and lengthy Physics question paper. Students, in unison, voiced that 3 hours wasn't enough to complete the paper. The panic that the lengthy Physics question paper has caused among class 12 students hasn't died down even after four days.
The anxiety after the results which are still more than a month away is such that students are still tweeting to CBSE and HRD Minister and have demanded that CBSE practice lenient marking for the Physics paper.
CBSE is yet to come out with a response to the students' demands. Meanwhile, even on Saturday students were tweeting to Prakash Javadekar, CBSE and any other stake holder to take cognizance of students' grievance.
