The day for CET aspirants started with a moderate Biology and easy Mathematics in the afternoon session. Students came out with mixed reactions, as this year's biology paper was a little moderate with few tricky questions. Questions were fully based on the NCERT syllabus.
In the Biology paper there were 50 Easy level questions, 8 moderate level and 2 difficult & tricky questions. An average student can score between 35 and 40 marks.
While there were no out of syllabus questions, the standard of the paper has been maintained the same as last year, said Dr. Sridhar G, Founder, Deeksha Network

Lokesh G, student of Deeksha Network said, "Biology paper was pretty good. But I think just text book did not help. I could have cracked full paper if I had referred NCERT book thoroughly. I am expecting close to 45 or so."
