Sundari Sree Pisipati, a Chemistry teacher from DPS Kamptee Road, Nagpur, said, “The paper was mostly concept based, so the students having a thorough study of the NCERT textbook will definitely excel. It was a well constructed paper and moderately exhaustive. Although, I thought the students must have found the numerical questions to be a bit difficult as the calculations were tough and lengthy. Overall, it was an easy paper and I think students will score marks effortlessly.”
Anupama Lokhande, a CBSE Class 12 student from Tuli Public School, Nagpur, said, “The paper was definitely easy and not at all lengthy. But 12th board should allow calculators as our maximum time gets wasted in doing multiplication division rather than thinking on the tough questions. Physical chemistry was my weak point and hence, electro-chemistry posed a bit of difficulty for me. But I managed to do well.”
“The questions were easy and direct. At least 40% questions were from last five years question papers. Anyone who would have solved the previous year questions and covered the NCERT exercises can score above 80. The questions were easier than last year’s. However, the private candidates who do not study from NCERT books were seen sleeping in my centre, that was a bit concerning,” said Abha Choudhary, chemistry teacher of Notre Dame Academy, Patna.
Rutuja Dorlikar, also from CPS Katol Road, “The exam was easier as compared to the ones we gave at school. The calculations were easy. The nomenclature was a bit tricky but not hard. Reactions part was also easy surprisingly. It was not all lengthy and I finished the whole paper on time.”
Bhopal’s KV No 1 chemistry teacher Neeta Chaturvedi said, “It is easy to pass the exam but it is hard to score well as organic chemistry and numerical questions were quite tricky to solve.”
“The paper was easy. All the questions came from within the NCERT textbook. If you have studied the book well, you’d have easily done all,” said Parikshit Ranjeet Raje of Jayshree Periwal High School in Jaipur.
