CBSE Class 12 Physics Exam Feedback of Students

Most of the students found the CBSE class 12 Physics paper very difficult. The feedback of students who appeared for the Physics examination today is provided below:

Akansha Mohile, St. Palloti School, Nagpur: I would say that today’s paper was of medium difficulty level. Physics is the toughest subject so the paper was as we had expected. Most of us were able to finish on time and nothing was asked which is not in the prescribed syllabus.

Fatema Dawood, CPS Katol, Nagpur: The paper was simply deadly. It is not fair to give us one day to prepare for Physics and then even give such a difficult question paper. At least CBSE checkers should ease up on the checking and be lenient with it.

Insiya Dawawala, Centre Point School, Katol Road, Nagpur: The questions were very tricky and it was a very difficult paper. CBSE should have given more time to prepare for such a tough subject. We were given only one day. We are all extremely disappointed.
