Ludhiana,

The first term of the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) exams for Class X and XII began today. Thousands of students appeared for exams of both board classes in Punjab. The first exam was of Punjabi subject today.

For Class X, the first term of the final board exam was conducted in the morning session at 10 am while for Class XII, the exam was held in the evening session at 2 pm. For both the classes, the exam was of one and a half hours duration each.

This time, it was a new experience for students as board had decided to take exams in two terms. Both the terms will be of equal marks.

Dr Devinder Singh Chhina, Principal, Government School, said students were given proper information about the new pattern of the board exams. Students were fully prepared to appear in exams, he added.

Gurpreet, a Class X student, said though it was a new experience, yet those who prepared well had no problem in writing answers in the exam. The exam was easy for them, he added. "It is good for us, I feel. If some student has not performed well in the first term, he or she can prepare with more focus and concentration on syllabus in the second term of the same exam to improve his/her score," he said.

The Education Department had deployed teachers on the block-level on duties for conducting the first term exams smoothly.

Meanwhile, there was a mixed response in schools as far as wearing of face masks or maintaining social distance was concerned during the exam.
