When we were in school, a 100% in maths was fine. But if someone got a 100 in anyother subject, it meant something fishy was happening. The teachers used to reduce atleast 1/2 marks for each answer that required a detailed one. Marks were awarded in full only for the one word and definition type of answers. Then, a few centums started to sprout in the non-maths subjects in the Public exam results. This increased considerably, but the number of centums was always higher in Maths when compared to the other subjects. Today, I got to see the Entrance Exam results in Tamil Nadu for professional colleges and was astonished to see that there were no centums in Maths while there were a few thousands in the Biology group. You can check the details here.
What happened to Maths? Was it very tough this year? Why couldn't even a single person get a centum?
