BENGALURU: Second PU students of Arts and Commerce streams who were worried after hearing about the Mathematics paper being tough from their friends, were relieved on Thursday after attempting the Economics paper.
According to the students, it was an easy paper and one could easily score above 60. Nanda Khadri M J of Mother Teresa PU College said, “The paper was very easy. I could finish well ahead of time and also answer few extra questions. I had only studied from the text book and referred a few previous question papers.”
Subash from KLE College said, “The paper was totally unexpected. I had prepared well for this subject. Overall, the paper was manageable, I feel I could have done better.”
Subject experts also felt the paper was very easy adding that any average student could secure over 60 marks easily. “About 90 per cent questions were easy and the rest were moderate,”said an Economics faculty from Vivekananda College.
Five cases of malpractice were reported from across the state on Thursday, two each in Belagavi and Kalaburagi, followed by one case in Mysuru.
