CBSE 10th English exam: Students’ Reaction

Anand Mohan, a Kendriya Vidyalaya student said: "The question numbers 13 and 14 were a bit confusing as they had only four statements and no questions asked. We got confused, also in Section- C (Literature), most of the options were found to be similar, and candidates had to depend on CBSE for the right options in the answer key. Overall the paper was difficult, and confusing except Section B (Grammar) portions which were only scoring."

"It was a standard paper filled with good logical and conceptual understanding, especially for the literature and writing part. Students must have found it very similar to the sample papers that they have practiced. The main error in the paper was question no 13 and question 14 as it did not have questions but only options were there,” said Deepti Sawhney, Dean of Innovation at Silverline Prestige School, Ghaziabad.
