'Easy to pass but hard to score well'

According to Neeta Chaturvedi, teacher (Bhopal), "It is easy to pass but it is hard to score well as organic chemistry and numerical questions were quite tricky to solve."

"The questions were easy and direct. Anyone who would have solved previous year's questions and covered the NCERT exercises can score above 80. The questions were easier than last year's," added Abha Choudhary, teacher (Patna).
