  • 6

New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has today conducted class 12 English paper and students have complained about an out of syllabus question. According to syllabus prescribed by the board, students are expected to study one out of two novels – Invisible Man or Silas Marner, as there is an internal choice and the examinees have to answer only one question based on the novel section.

However, in the CBSE class 12 English exam 2019, questions from both the novels were asked. A teacher from DMS, Jalandhar said, “We only taught one novel to students and each school does the same. Now, a six marks question was asked from each of them in the final exam. This is not fair to the students.”
