Arushi Singh, Omkar English School, Mumbai said, "I thought the exam was going to be easy, but the questions were confusing. Questions asked were based on case studies. The assertion and reasoning questions were the difficult ones. But it all balanced with other parts."

Swayam Telang, Holy Angel's School, felt "The paper was great and I was expecting a hard question, but the school had made us practice mock tests and we were comfortable with it. So, the exam was so easy."
