CBSE class 12 Mathematics exam analysis: Students found today’s CBSE class 12 mathematics exam to be difficult. If experts are to be believed, at least 2-3 questions per set had questions which were of higher difficulty level than that of CBSE class 12 exams. Of the 80 marks, an average student will not be able to score over 55-60 marks.
Talking to indianexpress.com, Deepti Sharma, head of department, mathematics from Shiv Nadar School Noida said, “While students might have found the exam easy, there were several tricky areas to test conceptual clarity. As a teacher, this type of paper gives a clear idea of which student has mugged up and who has studied throughout the year. Students, though, may find it hard to score.”
Anup Tiwari, PGT Mathematics from VidyaGyan Bulandshahar commented, “There were 3-4 questions including some MCQs and question number 20, which were of higher difficulty level than usual. An average student will not be able to score more than 60 marks out of 80.”
Saurabh Kumar, director academics, Vidyamandir Classes believes some of the questions in the exam were at the level of JEE. “Section B and C were of moderate level of difficulty while section D, which had six markers, needed conceptual clarity. More questions were asked from probability and application derivatives and calculus. To solve such questions, students need to have done a lot of practice.” He added that set 2 was of higher difficulty level than others.
