This is to all class 12(CBSE) students. How was your maths paper?

You can discuss about the paper here.

I feel the paper was lengthy. I lost 12 marks because of it. But I'm sure about the rest 88 marks.

What are your views about the paper?

TopNewestI wouldn't say it was hard, (as most people are complaining on the cbse website), but without a doubt lengthy. I had left some questions which I hadn't seen before for the end, so that I wouldn't waste time thinking about it. The one hour left bell rang when I had about 8 large questions left so, I had to rush everything. Messed up two questions worth totally ten marks and I'm not sure if the other final answers are right as I didn't get time to recheck the paper. Did manage to scribble together atleast something for each question. So hopefully some marks for attempting.

Just lengthy, really lengthy. (Outside Delhi)

Do not worry my comrades. My big bro gave his board examinations last year. He shared his experience of his friends who did not attempt the paper worth 13-15 marks and yet scored 90+ (ya that's true. Believe me!!)

So just cheer up, JEE is on all the best for its preparations \( \huge \ddot \smile \)

Surely true! CBSE people are strange... Those who left got 90+ and those who did whole didn't get 100!!!

While solving a limit problem (continuity and differentiability) I applied le hopital's rule which is not taught in cbse math. My colleagues struggle with It , and they were not familiar with the rule. Will cbse give marks for the rule I applied to solve it.

I don't think so. You could've done it like this:

\[\lim _{ x\rightarrow 0 }{ \frac { \tan { x } -\sin { x } }{ { x }^{ 3 } } } =\lim _{ x\rightarrow 0 }{ \tan { x } \left( \frac { 1-\cos { x } }{ { x }^{ 3 } } \right) } =\lim _{ x\rightarrow 0 }{ \tan { x } \left( \frac { 2\sin ^{ 2 }{ \left( \frac { x }{ 2 } \right) } }{ { x }^{ 3 } } \right) } \quad =\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \]

You are likely not to be awarded any marks for it. CBSE marking scheme doesn't "recognize" this method,and shall be treated as wrong.

Outside delhi or inside delhi??

Me inside

I didn't find it lenghty

Log in to reply

Mine was outside Delhi. One of my friends(not a JEE aspirant) in Delhi told that the paper was tough not lengthy. So that won't matter much for JEE aspirants like you.

Log in to reply

But for jee aspirants too.. there was no time to think as paper was lengthy.

It was quite fair paper.. Just had to think twice before scaling the lpp graph. (outside delhi)

Log in to reply

Yeah the paper was too lengthy ... I finished it in last second :-).. (Outside Delhi)

I left around 20 marks. Ya it was lengthy. Some other factors also affected my paper. Overall , I found it a bit lengthy. Let's hope that cbse understand and we get some grace marks. I am highly depressed. :(

Log in to reply

Brother CBSE people aren't good people. They don't have any feelings. Don't expect grace marks.

Log in to reply

Hmm. Now it decreased my interest in maths. I feel like i am not suitable for maths if i couldn't solve the paper. :'( Really feeling bad. Physics had already gone bad. I had no hope for chemistry. I had all the hope with maths but it also made me sad. Now i can expect a percentage of 85 - 90. :(

Grace marks are given in such cases. Trust me.

Been there, (was) given that ;)

I couldn't complete the Area problem and had no time to revise.

I have seen people telling that it was '15 like. Is that true?

Log in to reply

I had solved previous year paper and it took around 2 hrs 35 min. This year paper was quite lengthy. '15 was tricky and fun to solve but '16 was boring and lengthy.

Log in to reply

My friends who had solved last year's papers told that this year it was tougher.

Log in to reply

I am also feeling bad. I wasn't able to attempt 16 marks paper. Cbse has gone mad.

I also feel that paper was tricky.

(Delhi)

Log in to reply

I found paper very boring. I was feeling sleepy during the examination which lost me 12 marks.

Log in to reply

Paper was very lengthy although i attempted whole paper.No time was left for revision and i m quite confident with my methods but only god knows about calculations.That probability distr. ques beated the hell out of me.

Outside delhi

I knew how to do the but time was the biggest problem.

Log in to reply

Delhi paper didn't seem to be lengthy or tricky. But I did a silly mistake of a "-" sign! no idea how many marks mad CBSE people would cut for it!

Log in to reply

It last 45 min It was looking impossible to attempt all the paper (reflecting lengthiness of paper) but I managed to do it and expecting 90+ marks .(ANY 100/100 here)

There is not a single sec left for revision of paper . I am not good at binary operation and LPP both together suck my 10 marks (I hope I am only person whose was unable to solve these two) , but about rest of paper I am confident . If anyone have answers key , please tell me .(Outside Delhi)

Now it's time for JEE MAINS-2016 final revision

@Aditya Kumar Which board should I keep for 11th ? CBSC , ICSC or state board ? Currently I am in CBSE board appearing for 10th boards.

Log in to reply

See it depends on your preferences. Since you live in Maharashtra I recommend you to join CBSE as Mahrashtra HSC sucks. Their physics paper was pathetic. No action is being taken over that. But for us in CBSE there are wide range of discussions over this issue. So that's a boon.

Log in to reply

Physics paper was tough or questions asked were wrong ? Thanks !

Log in to reply

But dont worry my friends....CBSE Has said that the paper will be checked very lineantly!!! Ao dont worry
