CBSE 10th exam: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducted class 10 exam today barring the riot-affected North East and North Delhi region. While for students whose exam centre falls in these areas will be announced later. Those who appeared for the exam found it to be easy.
Geeta Khokhran, TGT English, VidyaGyan said, “Paper was easy and scoreable paper, as per the students’ reaction. Even the writing part which is often considered tough was very familiar. Since the paper was simple, we can expect a tough evaluation. If the checking is kept easy, the number of 100s can go high this year.”

However, teacher from Genesis Global, Noida believes it was not that simple an exam. Ruchi Tikoo, class 10 teacher, said, “Though students were happy with the exam, there were many questions based on analytical understanding of the subject rather than direct NCERT-based questions. Though these questions were balanced with that of easy questions. It was a right kind of mix of difficult and easy questions neighther was the exam lengthy. Yet, we would not say that it was a 100 scorer exam.”
