This year’s physics paper was very difficult as compared to previous years. Despite physics being a scoring subject, the students did not get high marks.

Even the students who were scoring well in their pre-boards and other preparatory exams were quite unhappy with the paper. Most students were very disappointed with the paper.

Most of the students had difficulty in understanding the questions, which they thought was framed in an indirect and tricky manner. They also found the paper to be very lengthy and had difficulty in answering all the questions within stipulated time.

There was much time consumption in figuring out which question belongs to which topic, due to which there was insufficient time in answering all the questions properly. Compared to last years’ question paper, it was very complex this year. Some students were expecting passing marks only.
