BENGALURU: Day 2 of PU II examinations seemed like a cakewalk for many students. On Friday, students appeared for the Computer Science and Electronics exams and many said both papers were easy, some even finishing the exam an hour before the time was up.
Abhinav J, a student of DCFL PU College, said, “The paper was easier than I expected. I completed writing an hour earlier. I studied from the text books prescribed by PU Board and the question bank provided by the college.”
He added, “The paper was definitely easier than the previous year’s question papers. A majority of the questions were conceptual and more definitions were asked rather than application-based questions. There were no errors and the paper was in line with the blueprint.”
Sumaiah, a student of MES PU college, said, “All the question were straightforward, there was no confusion. I did not expect such an easy paper and I’m happy. I hope the other papers are as easy.”
Even the teachers were surprised to find such an easy paper. Dr Milind, Vice-President of Deeksha College, said, “Students were in for a sweet surprise with such an easy paper, unlike last year. There were only two tricky questions and the rest were all direct. The paper maintained the set pattern, blueprint, without any out-of-syllabus questions and no errors.”
Apart from an incident of malpractice reported from Tumakuru district, there were no issues of mass copying or paper leaks across the state.
C Shika, Director of Pre University Education, said, “We are happy that our secure exam system is working well and that there have been no cases of paper leaks or any other malpractices reported from exam centres. Everything is going well.”
