No toppers from biology this year
A majority of the toppers in CBSE’s class 12 board examinations are from maths and computer science stream this year.
One of the reasons is the students who took maths and computer science stream have scored high marks due to the comparatively easy question papers. But, the biology students did not get high marks owing to the tough question paper.
“The biology question paper had many twisted questions and the paper is in general very vague making it tough for students to score high marks,” one of the school principals told this paper.
“Usually, our school will have a lot of centums and 99 marks. This year we had only one student scoring 99 marks in biology. The question paper was on the standard of competitive exams,” the principal observed.
While many schools had centums in maths and computer science, very few reported centums in biology subject....
