Reviewing the question paper, he said that the 5 marks questions and the majority of 3 marks questions were scoring, provided the students had read the questions carefully. Some of the questions in section C were HOT or High Order Thinking skills type questions. There was equal distribution of questions from both part of physics textbook.
Commenting on the difficulty level of the Physics question paper in comparison to last year's question paper, he said that students would have found the paper comfortable. However, he said that since there was only one day gap, it might be a challenge even for good students to score more than 95.
Reiterating the view that the question paper was of average difficulty level, Mrs Mira Bera who is PGT Physics at Army Public School, Delhi Cantt, said that there weer a good mix of direct questions for average students. Some one marks questions, sub parts of three marks questions and five marks questions were a bit confusing. She also said that some students found the paper lengthy.
In her opinion an average student will be able to score around 60% marks.
Commenting on the questions asked in the paper she said that one question on ac generator was repeated from last year, while some other were based on similar concepts. Some questions were twisted but none was from out of syllabus.
Questions bearing one marks were more or less direct. Some numericals in section c were a bit tricky.
She said that the question paper was as per CBSE blue print and latest CBSE sample paper. It reinforced the basic idea that one should study every line of the ncert book and have concept clarity. It had a right mix of knowledge, understanding, analysis and application, but not too many students will be able to score cent percent as sub parts in three as well as five marks questions were tricky to nail.
Jaysriram Ballav Roy, who is PGT Physics at Mother's Public School, Bhubaneshwar, also agreed that the Physics question paper was balanced and slightly on the easier side as compared to previous year. Most of numericals and reasoning questions were from the NCERT text. He said that students will score well and must be relieved about their Physics marks.
