There was confusion before the exam began as many students found the second page of the hall ticket blank. The students had to provide their personal details such as name and hall ticket number. Later the students were allowed to take the test after writing down the details.

Speaking to Express, Srikanth, father of Sri Nidhi from Vellore who took the test said, the system was that the hall ticket had to be downloaded online. For some students the second page was not printed. The officials allowed the students to take the test after the students wrote the details required.

Anupriya, from Trichy, said she found the question paper okay. “I studied in the State board. Competing with CBSE syllabus was tough. But still I tried to give my best. The test went on well though there was some confusion in the beginning of the test.”
