“A number of questions were from RD Sharma,”

“We faced shortage of time, as the questions were difficult to understand. In fact, I did not find the answers for a lot of questions, and I had to submit the paper with only the workings.”

“There were similar questions to what I practiced from the help books, rather than the NCERT textbook”


“The one-mark questions were lengthy and required us to go through complex steps, which was time-consuming.”

“Concepts such as Linear Programming and Matrices which have generally got easy questions over the years had tough questions this time. Every question was tricky, as a result of which many of us found it tough to finish the paper on time and many students, including the top scorers in schools, were crying after the exam,”
