  • Today CBSE's Class 12 CHEMISTRY paper was tough and tricky. Teachers who have gone through the paper note that many questions in the examination require High Order Thinking Skills. Numerical questions require a combination of formula.

As per the initial reactions and teacher analysis, the Central Board of Secondary Education, CBSE's Class 12th Chemistry paper today was tough and tricky. Teachers who have gone through the paper note that many questions in the examination require High Order Thinking Skills. Also, numerical questions require a combination of formula, making it a time-consuming exercise. Initial reactions of the students were not satisfactory either as many refused to comment, visibly upset with the question paper.

Not only do the questions require high order thinking skills but also require a student to apply the concepts in a thorough manner.Teachers noted that considering the overall strength of students, the paper was unlikely to be a scoring paper. Even the numerical questions were further broken down. A senior Chemistry teacher with a leading school noted, “The paper was good but needs a thorough revision of intext HOTS level questions.” Another teacher noted that the numerical question required two formulae, which would be confusing for most. More importantly, the teacher commented that students would have to first apply one formula, use the answer and then apply another formula. For a 1 mark question of coordinate chemistry, the teacher commented, the question was too time-consuming. 

We request the CBSE Examination Board to make the CHEMISTRY paper correction liberal so that it wont affect our future.
