Bengaluru, (DHNS): Many students who had registered for the Biology subject in the Common Entrance Test (CET) held on Wednesday gave the paper a miss. Only 77.24% (1.53 lakh) of the registered candidates wrote the examination.

However, 96.04% or 1,90,784 of the candidates who registered for the Mathematics paper wrote the examination. Students who wrote the Biology examination said the paper was easy and straightforward.

Chinmayi DA said “This year’s paper was fairly easier than the last year. There weren’t many repeated questions but a lot of them were asked directly from the NCERT textbook. Time was not at all a problem. I was able to finish before the allotted time.”

Some students pointed out a few mistakes such as the word ‘population’ being printed instead of ‘parturition’.

Prof Hanumanthacharya from BASE coaching centre, analysing the Biology paper, said the question paper appeared skewed, with seven
questions from a single chapter and very few questions from the Ecology unit.

A mistake was also pointed out in version ‘E’ of the Mathematics paper, where one question did not have the correct answer in the options.

“I found Geometry relatively tough. Questions from PU I were a bit complex. Most of the questions were from PU II. I think the paper was slightly tougher than last year. However, time was not an issue.” Sagar, a student, said. The Mathematics paper was of moderate difficulty and a bit lengthy, students said.

Paraashara K P, a student of Deeksha PU college, said “During the JEE Main exam, many of my friends made mistakes while writing their name and admission number as they were nervous. If we make such mistakes, we lose our confidence in the very beginning. The pre-printed sheet is very helpful.”

An officialof the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) said the feature was introduced to ensure that there was no room for malpractice in the conduct of the test. The examinations for Physics and Chemistry subjects will be held on Thursday.
