The CBSE Class 10 English board exam paper was conducted today, March 23, at various test centres across India. We spoke to a few students about how their English paper went and most of them said the paper was easy and they finished the exam before time.
Paper was not lengthy
The CBSE English paper is usually quite easy and students are relatively relaxed on this day. However, the common problem that crops up is that the paper is usually quite lengthy and completing it on time is a task.
But this year, the CBSE Class 10 English paper was very easy with straightforward questions.
Some of the students mentioned that they completed the paper half an hour to even one hour before time.
Easy Writing Skills section
The Writing Skills portion usually takes up the most time as it contains long-form writing-based questions. But this section was not that difficult this year and students didn’t take long to complete it.
No question from Shakespeare
The Literature portion carried straight questions from NCERT but as one student informed, there were no questions set from Julius Ceaser.
CBSE almost always sets a question from the excerpt of the Shakespeare play in the NCERT book, but that wasn’t the case this year.
The students we spoke to looked very happy with the Class 10 English paper and are expecting marks of around above 75.
