Examination dates of important papers will clash with some matches of the World Cup cricket
BANGALORE: A smile was all that Fiza Farheen and her classmate could give when asked about their performance in the second paper of the ICSE 10th standard examination on Friday. They were short of words to explain what they felt while writing English-2, the paper based on literature.
So was the mood of her other classmates writing the two-hour long paper for 80 marks. "I could successfully answer the questions on Julius Caesar," said Rajeev C. pointing out that his reading of Shakespeare's works had paid off.
Some students felt that writing two papers on English on successive days was a good warm-up to tackle tougher subjects to come.
Similar was the reaction of the 10th standard students who had written social science examination under CBSE. "The credit for successfully writing the paper should go to my mother. She helped me understand history," said Shruti B.
These students may face difficulty in preparing for important papers which clash with some of the matches of the World Cup cricket. While ISCE students have to write Physics (March 20) Chemistry (March 22) and Biology (March 26), those from CBSE stream have to write Science and Technology paper on March 24.
"I have planned to lock the room and study," said cricket buff Saif Asim.
"My parents have removed the cable television connection," said Rahul G.H.
