Students are claiming that a four-mark question in today’s Class 10 Hindi exam for Course A was out of the syllabus. The question was there in set 2 and 3 of today’s exam. In the question, students were asked to explain a raas with an example. However, many claim that these were not the ones prescribed in the syllabus.
Arvind Kumar, PGT Hindi from VidyaGyan, a Bulandhahar-based school, said, “Students had six ras in their syllabus but in set 3 they were asked about ‘adbhut ras‘ and in set 2 about ‘vibhats raas‘. None of these raas were part of the six prescribed for students.” He added, “While there was choice in these questions, but it negates the point of a choice as students had to go for the other question.”
