Class 12 students thanked the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Twitter for an "easy" Chemistry paper, days after parents and students complained of a lengthy and tough Physics paper. Experts said that the Chemistry paper was concept-based - it tested a student's understanding of the concepts instead of focusing on memorising .
We spoke to Mrs Suman Sapra, HOD Chemistry, Army Public School, Delhi Cantt., who gave us the following review of the Chemistry exam.
After relatively easy English and moderately difficult physics paper, students gave mixed reviews about Chemistry paper. Most of students, however, found the paper balanced.
Some of the questions carrying one marks, sub parts of three marker questions and questions carrying five marks were confusing.
Some of the questions were brain ticklers ensuring that students needed to have in-depth knowledge about the topic.
Mrs. Sapra said that those students who had thoroughly studied NCERT book, would have been able to attempt it well. All questions in the paper were based on concepts given in the NCERT text book.
Students, meanwhile, thanked CBSE on Twitter for setting an easy paper.

Earlier, before the commencement of the examination, students had taken to Twitter to voice their concerns about the question paper after facing a tough Physics paper on March 5, 2019.
