FAULTY CLASS 12TH MATH PAPER DRAWS FLAK
Srinagar, Oct 31: While Board of School Education officials has been boasting about the ‘improvements’ made in the examination system, the students appearing in Class 12th Board examination are aghast over the ‘faulty’ series system in question papers. The series system that was introduced by the BOSE officials in 2011 attracted lot of criticism from both social as well as academic circles for ‘discriminatory’ and ‘imbalance’ in the question papers. However BOSE officials went on with it without paying heed to the criticism from students and parents alike.
This year the ‘faulty’ pattern has again come in the line of fire with students, who appeared in the mathematics paper on Tuesday, alleged that almost there was gross ‘imbalance’ in the paper with some.
While some questions in A Series were lengthy and ‘incomprehensive’ for the students, “the B and C Series of Mathematics were very difficult with some questions out of syllabus,” the students alleged.
“There is no proper pattern followed in the examination and the BOSE is insensitive towards the students concern. Questions in each series were different due to which some students got easy questions and some had to evaluate difficult ones, which is unfair,” the candidates and parents told Greater Kashmir.
“Series A and C of Mathematics were difficult as compared to B. But the in B Series some questions were out of syllabus and faulty. There was confusing pattern with Q2, Q3, Q4, Q17 and part 4 and part 5 of Q26 totally wrong,” the students complained. “We are unable to decide how to prepare for the future papers.”
According to them, the Mathematics A-Series was not set as per the weight age of marks for the chapters.
Similarly, the candidates appearing in English paper complained of ‘incomprehensive’ language. “The language in the paper was confusing and most of the questions had incomprehensive language,” they said. “Some of the questions were out of syllabus.”
They said the papers should have been set as per Board of Professional Entrance Examination Pattern, where the questions are in different sequence in each series while the questions are same in every series.
“The level of difficulty and time consumption varies in each series. That ways, there would be a huge difference in the candidates’ final merit. And no two candidates, with same intelligence and preparation, will have the same marks tally,” a senior lecturer wishing anonymity said.
When contacted, Joint Secretary Examinations, Mehboob Hussain said the committees has already been constituted in order to find out the genuineness of the allegations by the students and parents. “If the experts identify any fault will be definitely compensate it,” he said. However he denied that any question was out of syllabus.
