Students from 12th Class who appeared in English paper (R-series) as regular candidates on Monday, said they were “shocked” to see questions out of the syllabus and could not attempt most of the questions.
“We were not expecting that Board of School Education authorities are so negligent about the examination as most of the questions were not only tough but of syllabus as well,” said Jehangir Ahmed, a student adding that they want re-examination of English paper.
According to students, the matter was brought into the notice of BOSE who assured them that they would look into the matter.
When contacted, Secretary BOSE, Renu Goswami told CNS that students should give a representation to her and she would look into the matter. “I am always present in my office. Let them come. We would certainly meet their demand if found correct,” she said.
