With a good number of indirect questions and numericals, the physics exam for Class XII boards turned out to be slightly tricky. Students who had prepared selectively were in for a surprise as the question paper deviated from the general pattern. However, the value-based question in the first science paper of boards was considered a cakewalk.

Sooraj E.P, a student of Nalanda Public School, said the question paper was definitely different from the usually followed pattern. “However, it was not problematic. Only, the application-based questions threw up a bit of challenge,” he said.

Most students said they expected to score well in today’s paper. “I finished my paper half an hour before time. Most of the questions were from previous year’s papers,” said Anirudh Saxena, a student.
