Karnataka II PUC Mathematics exam was unlike the other previous exams that were quite easy for the students. The paper was reportedly difficult and students pointed at Part C as a spoiler with unexpected and tricky questions.
How did the Karnataka II PUC Mathematics exam go?
Although the exam went on smoothly according to the invigilators, many students felt that the paper was too lengthy that they could not even finish it on time. "Part B and C were bad. It was a very long paper and I am depressed," said a girl student who did not want to be named.
However, the bright students seemed to have handled even this tough paper. "It was indeed a difficult paper but I performed well," said Rakshitha Shiva, a candidate. "However, there is only little scope to score 100," she added.
For Amrutha Muralidharan who had taken up Math tuitions for the PUC exams, the paper turned out to be okay although she dreaded the results of her Part C answers.
