The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducted class 10 social science semester 2 exams on Saturday. This is what the students said after the essay:
The student in class 10 at BBS International School, Gohri in Prayagraj Aditi Tripathi said that her exam in social sciences went very well.
“I hope to score good goals in it. None of the questions were difficult and the question paper contained no surprises. I thought the question paper was much easier than what came during the term 1 test,” she said.
Her classmate and also a student at BBS International School, Gohri in Prayagraj Alok Sharma agreed.
“All the questions came from the syllabus and in general the question paper was easier than even the test paper. Anyone who had prepared in accordance with the NCERT pattern would have done well,” he claimed.
Shivram Pandey, a student at Prayag Public School, Lalgopalganj in Prayagraj, also said that the questionnaire was lighter than Term-1 and was not long at all.
“I managed to complete the questions with half an hour left,” he said.
Yogendra Kumar, also a student at Prayag Public School, Lalgopalganj in Prayagraj said that his degree also went very well.
“Even the question of ‘map’ where we had to identify the location of the given power plant, airport and nuclear power plant was easy enough and I got it right even though I was a little wary of map-based issues,” he shared.
Social sciences teacher at Ganga Gurukulam School, Phaphamau in Prayagraj Kusum Srivastava said all questions in the social sciences exam, including from the social sciences, history and geography sections, were along expected lines in line with the CBSE pattern and NCERT standards. “The questionnaire did not contain any surprises for the students and most of them would have done well,” she claimed.
The students in class 10 who gave their CBSE Social Sciences board exam on Saturday gave a mixed answer to the question paper. While some students found the test very easy, others said it was moderately difficult.
