Incomplete Question in CBSE Class XII Mathematics Paper

An incomplete question of six marks in the CBSE Class XII mathematics paper left examinees baffled on Monday.

There were also complaints against the Higher Secondary nutrition and physics papers.

Teachers of CBSE schools who were on examination duty said a crucial part of a question in Group C, carrying six marks, was missing.

“Students could answer only 94 marks because of the incomplete question, which was a must item. The board should have been more careful,” said a teacher of a CBSE school in south Calcutta.

Though there was no instruction from the Delhi-based authorities, most schools advised the examinees not to waste time on the “incomplete” question.

Malini Bhagat, the principal of Mahadevi Birla Girls’ Higher Secondary School, said: “It seems to be a printing error. We asked the students not to worry as the board would surely do the needful to ensure that the students are compensated.”

Several examinees expressed the fear that the “board’s goof-up” might mar their chances of securing admission in reputable colleges. “The marks in the Class XII exams often form the basis of admission in degree courses. Missing out six marks is not a joke,” said an examinee.

In the Higher Secondary nutrition paper, examinees alleged, a question was wrongly set from the Class XI syllabus.

“Following the bifurcation of the HS course in 2008, questions from Class XI topics are not supposed to be set in the Class XII exams,” said an examinee in a north Calcutta centre.

A section of the students who took the physics test complained that some questions were set following the pattern in the old syllabus.

Onkar Sadhan Adhikari, the president of the West Bengal Council for Higher Secondary Education, said the authorities would discuss the “matter with subject experts”, though he had not received any complaint.

  • What abt the probability question……will there be any marks awarded to students as it was not from the NCERT CBSE class 12 syllabus!!!!?

  • Sir,

    With due respect, I like to ask about the marks in cbse 2010 examination for maths.
    I want to know whether the 12 marks for which the questions were wrong were awarded to all the students as I think I have not got that marks as I was expecting not less than 94 marks in maths. Now, I have applied for re-evaluation. So, I again want to know whether the re-checkers would take this into account. As per the re-evaluation rules only adding of numbers, etc. all of such type of clerical things would be done in re-evaluation, the 12 no.s also fall in same category but I am still not sure whether they be added again.
    So, sir please look into this matter and be kind to inform me the same.
    I would be very much thankful.
