THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: With trembling feet and ambitious minds, 42,315 students of the district appeared for their SSLC examination on Monday.
The examination of Malayalam-1 paper was held in the afternoon. The examination which began at 1.45 p.m. lasted for 90 minutes. Though filled with trepidation before the exam, the students were seen happy after the examination as the first paper was relatively easy.
The students who came out of the examination halls were visibly happy.
Shamnad A of Raja Kesavadas Memorial HSS, was happy at the way he performed in Monday’s examination.
“It was quite difficult to comprehend what went through my mind before the examination began. I prayed to God to make it simple. Fortunately it went through smoothly and I think I have done well,” he said.
The lad was so joyful after the examination that he immediately rushed to join his pals after leaving the exam hall.
Similar feelings were expressed by Arjun Sundaran who said that he was very nervous when the invigilator handed him the question paper. “I was filled with fear when I received the question paper. But the paper was not tough. I feel I had crossed the first hurdle quite easily,” he said.
However, there were some students who were in a sulking mood. “I could not finish the paper well. I lost a bit of time in the beginning. That’s why I could not complete the examination on time,” a desperate girl who sought anonymity said, with tears rolling down her cheeks.
