Karnataka II PU Maths paper tough
The Karnataka Pre-University education Department confirmed that an anonymous SMS had started circulating from Tuesday afternoon spreading rumors that II PU Mathematics paper examination held on March 18, 2013 will be conducted again, because it was very tough.

Compared to the last 10 years question papers this one was very tough, The question paper had questions from out of their syllabus. The format of question paper did not seem to be perfect. They said questions of less makes were asked for more marks which were time consuming.


A professor said that, the 35B question under section D was out of syllabus. The same question had been asked in the 2010 board exam and grace marks were given to it. Similarly students are expecting to get 8 marks in grace this year.

The Director issues clarification to Oneindia. He said, "If the paper is tough it would be tough. Framing of Question paper is at the sole discretion of the expert committee".

PU Board Director, Chakravarti Mohan on Thursday ruled out the complaints about Maths question paper which were not a part of the syllabus.

"However, the Maths expert committee will meet after the ongoing exams and see what should be done. The committee will investigate and then think over about giving grace marks, if found necessary." he added.

"The SMS also stated that if students contacted the II PU helpline and if complaints are lodged in a majority, they would get grace marks for the maths exam. We want to track the source of this SMS and catch the rumor mongers," said Chakravarti.

The department will approach the experts in the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and Department of e-Governance to track the source of these SMS, they said.
