Speaking about the difficulty level, I totally agree with the level of exam. None of the problem was

out of syllabus. Well done, cbse! (OMG Did I just praised a govt. organisation??) – Pranjal Jain · 2 years, 6 months agoLog in to reply

Considering the criticism that they have experienced ,if CBSE personnel read this , they'd be left blushing :PLog in to reply

@Azhaghu Roopesh M I got the same questions (different order). Can you post a solution to \(\displaystyle\int \frac{x\cos x+\sin x \mathrm dx}{x(x+\sin x)}\) – Pranjal Jain · 2 years, 6 months ago

notthe question from the paper , is it ?Btw I had attempted the other one , since that was a simple question of Partial Fractions . – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 6 months ago

Sorry! I read that wrong. It was \(\displaystyle\int \frac{-x\cos x+\sin x \mathrm dx}{x(x+\sin x)}\)Log in to reply

Since there is so much of protest against the "hardest" maths test in a decade, is this the same paper? I don't know if the paper is same all over the country but here, there are many protests, so just asking - are the protests worth?

THINKING, something that's not much prevalent in CBSE Schools and Students these days . – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 6 months agoLog in to reply

– Pranjal Jain · 2 years, 6 months ago

I needed 15-20 seconds more to finish up the test. I mean I left an integral as \(\int\frac{1}{1+x^2}\)Log in to reply

I kind of find it odd that people find themselves right in complaining about the difficulty of the paper. I mean, it's supposed to be an exam to test the candidate's aptitude/proficiency in a subject, so, shouldn't it be difficult? But I'll give you this, they should not have amped up the difficulty so much without informing anyone, even If the change was gradual, it would have been okay. I'm against there being sets which are totally easy though. That just defeats the purpose of a fair exam... but yeah.. it's already happened, nothing to do about it. – Raghav Vaidyanathan · 2 years, 6 months ago

@Mvs Saketh calling them idiots. – Krishna Ar · 2 years, 6 months ago

These exams are mainly NOT to test your ABILITY. Even avg student must be able to score 80. To prove your mettle, you have the JEE /BIT exams. Imagine the plight of the poor arts/medicine/commerce students who mayn't be as good as the JEE prodigies. I strongly disagree withLog in to reply

@Ronak Agarwal mentioned, this is a positive step towards improving the system(or so I think), we'll see... – Raghav Vaidyanathan · 2 years, 6 months ago

Mvs Saketh must not have meant it seriously. And I do not quite agree with you. If everyone scores really well, then what's the point of having an examination? It's easier to just give everyone a "you scored above 90" certificate and just let it be. And learning math for JEE does give students an edge in the exam, but there are "poor" arts/medicine/commerce students who are good at math too. I do find it a bit disturbing that CBSE departed sharply from the previous pattern, but I think the main problem was that the students expected an easy paper but were met with a difficult one. According to me, what happened was the result of people going through previous year papers and questions and preparing that way instead of actually trying to learn the subject. Everyone goes "where have I seen this question before??" instead of "how can I solve this??". AsLog in to reply

Again, let me reiterate. Board exams are DIFFERENT from entrance exams. They DO NOT and are NOT supposed to test the critical thinking ability of a student for more than 10 marks. Board exams form the basis for the entrance into multifarious colleges. CBSE is not the only board in INDIA. There are 30 state boards too. This move of the CBSE is definitely going to hamper the future of the average students who SOLELY depend upon the boards to survive (as in survive the heat of the competition). This positive step should have come ONLY after introduction of HOTS questions in schools. The students must be forced to try these themselves. I know, in my school , maths teachers kept giving us HOTS questions but immediately gave answers too because most of the students were blinking. If the system has to be revamped, it has to start at the grassroot levels. If not, CBSE should stop these bullcrap "SUDDEN" changes, and that too in the final examination. Many state boards have the total as 1200/1400. , but in CBSE it is 500. This is again a matter of concern for the students. CBSE is the most hypocritical board, because they say that they encourage learning by doing, learning beyond textbooks, but they never implement it. Instead, they only force the average students to push themselves to below average levels. Sigh.Log in to reply

– Raghav Vaidyanathan · 2 years, 6 months ago

You do have a point there. The disparity between the different boards is extremely troubling. But all we can expect now is for CBSE to learn from the thousands they screwed this year and maybe come up with a more viable plan of action.Log in to reply

I totally agree with you on this thing . In fact just after the Maths exam , I heard some girls talking : " I am definitely going to fail in this exam . Only 3-4 questions were from RD Sharma or of NCERT Pattern "

You see , perhaps it's the way we CBSE students have been hardwired that's wrong and that should be changed and this exam was a great attempt in that direction . – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 6 months ago

Wait wait wait. I would love to have a long drawn out discussion on this. I strongly condemn CBSE for doing this and whosoever the paper setter is (though I am in no way affected by his/her cowardly sissy-like actions), I wish the worst for him/her. 12th grade math is easy when you look at it from boards point of view usually. But when you suddenly decide to bring about a change that involves you to not only think your asses off to get to the end of a question but also write at great lengths, its gonna be really demeaning. CBSE has NEVER been application based and never WILL be too. This is by any means a damn shameful move. It is quite abrupt , which is why i say soLog in to reply

But I guess the transition of the paper style from Theoretical questions to Application based questions is finally here but just that people aren't able to accept it .

Haha , "Sach kadva hota hai !" – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 6 months ago

Log in to reply

but I not in favour of ONLY cbse putting a tough paper, that's wrong that's not justice, I mean it directly giving the students of state boards edge over their counterparts for admission in various colledges , I believe some system ought which takes in account these factors.

This is wrong being done to ONLY cbse students they don't deserve that, Collegdes must consider the toughness various board exams. – Ronak Agarwal · 2 years, 6 months ago

Now they'll end up getting good ranks in Jee Mains even if his/her Jee Mains marks are same as that of a CBSE student .

Well , let's hope for the best :) – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 6 months ago

You CBSE students are quite lucky to have a lenient marking scheme... I was in CBSE in class 10th and that time the CBSE was lenient in marking scheme. State board has made my life very tough and I am probably going to sink...

Also, the maths state board paper of Maharashtra was quite very difficult and some 2-3 questions were wrong which in total carried 7 marks. All questions were very tricky though and some steps were needed to remember, for instance in calculus section. – Parag Zode · 2 years, 6 months ago

I really feel that CBSE must amend its ways of teaching students or they are going to expect a repeat of this years performance again next year .

Btw how's your JEE Prep going on ? – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 6 months ago

It's going OK.. How's your preparation going? Also, are you practicing the papers or just going through the theory & formulae?Log in to reply

Once I am done with the revision (which is most likely by the 29th) , I'll solve at least 4 papers a day (I might sound a bit ambitious , but I've got no choice!) . – Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 6 months ago
