The students appearing for the boards examination this year don't seem to be getting an respite from the difficult questions. Just like the mathematics paper, accounts paper was also found lengthy by class 12 students. However, it was easy still many had to leave questions unattempted.
Guneet Gandhiok, student of Delhi Public School, Vasant Kunj said that the paper was easy but very lengthy. Unlike last years, this year, company balance sheet's questions didn't come. According to her, paper was not set up properly as there was a similar question for both eight and six marks, i.e. on "re-evaluation, partner's capital and balance sheet." Like many, she had to leave two questions.
Principal of the Indian School, Tania Joshi, said that the paper might be long but was easy as there was nothing out of syllabus. Most students left five-six marks questions as the theory part was tricky.
An accounts teacher at Ahlcon International School, Mayur Vihar, Ekta Kandhari said that many students couldn't complete the calculations and had to leave 10-15 marks unanswered. Although her top student was able to complete but couldn't recheck the paper.
She further added that the question paper was as per syllabus and was a balance of theory and practical elements. It wasn't lengthy as Shreshth Arora of Presidium School, Ashok Vihar, was able to complete the paper. He found it lengthy but not difficult.
