  1. I AM FROM KERALA AND I GOT SET 3. SET 3 WAS VERY DIFFICULT ESPECIALLY TRIGONOMETRY. MANY OF MY FRIENDS COULD SAY THE SAME

  2. Cbse has done unfair with students by providing different sets with different question .set 1 was very easy …I am very upset with my set 3 ..and some said set 2 was tough .cbse must treat every student equally . I know some will think all these things excuse but it’s the matter of our future .

  3. My son got Set-3 of Series JMS/3 Maths paper of CBSE Class 10 held on 7/3/2019 which was very hard, most time consuming, especially SecionC and SectionD had questions which are not from the latest syllabus of NCERT MATHS BOOK. But the media is talking only about Set1 and Set 2 that are easy, no time consuming and questions directly asked from the book. Even for students appearing for Professional exams like Chartered Accountancy only one set of question paper is given to all irrespective of age and talents. But different maths papers of different levels are given to students who are writing their first Board exam of their life. When the first core subject goes wrong, how can the student concentrate on other core subjects. Why thousands or few lakhs of students (who got SET 3 of Series JMS/3) have to undergo mental agony when all the students are given the same book to study and same time to answer the paper but with the most difficult question paper. Only based on the marks achieved in the core subject the students will be given chances to choose the groups which determines their Career. Why should the students who wrote ( Set3 of SeriesJMS/3) have to shatter their ambition of becoming a Doctor or Engineer? Is it a punishment to the students and parents for choosing CBSE Education instead of State Board Education. Please do justice and save the life of lakhs of students for their career and future lies in your hands.

  5. Actually which set was harder? 1,2 or 3? I am from saudi arabia and my teachers were saying set 1 was the hardest….the overall rating of the paper was extremely bad in our country……(we follow cbse.)

  6. I am very disappointed with cbse which gives set3 to the students which was very hard .I think that cbse is partial for some students who get set1 and set2 .I want cbse to give at least 10 extramarks for the students who solve set3 .To correct their mistake .otherwise all the will think that it is PBSCE (partial board of secondary education

  7. I am very disappointed with cbse who gave set3 to the students which was very Hard Cbse has done partiality by giving set1 sand set2 easy.now I want Cbse to give at least 10extramarks for the students who solve set3 .Otherwise Cbse will lose faith of the students and all the students including the future generation will that it is PBSCE (partial board of secondary education).

  8. I am from Secunderabad and I got set 3.it was really difficult n lengthy too. I heard many people saying that set 1 was hard but my all friends those who got set 1 were celebrating that they didn’t get set 3. Cbse last year the paper was very easy. Ant this year it was hard n ya different sets had different levels of questions. Y cbse is doing this partiality .its like cbse is not taking our education exam but checking who is lucky among all. In set 3 trigonometry and AP questions were like hell. Cbse should grant grace marks for those questions. I hope cbse will not destroy our lives and future. Cbse can’t even hold an examination fairly .Shame on cbse board and Indian education system.
