Thiruvananthapuram: Different coloured question papers for the Plus Two Physics exam (state board) on Saturday left students and teachers in some Kerala districts baffled.

The question papers had two colours. A bunch of question papers was yellow with questions printed in black colour. While the other bunch was white with questions printed in black colour.

The different coloured question papers for the same exam were received by exam centres in Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode districts. It created confusion about whether there was any mix-up. But code numbers and questions were in the same pattern, and exams happened.

Later, the teachers intimated the matter to the authorities concerned, but did not receive a convincing response. According to various teachers' associations, the alleged goof-up is the failure of the education department and the state government.

Earlier, the use of pinkish-red ink question papers for Plus One exam had stoked controversy. However, the education minister maintained that colour of the print was changed for Plus One question papers to easily distinguish them from Plus Two question papers. The change in colour of prints will help the invigilators to easily identify the question papers as the students in both classes will be seated in a mixed pattern for the upcoming examinations, he added.

The new development comes at this juncture. The education department claimed that they are looking into the alleged goof-up.
