Physics questions in geometry paper for pilot exam

Mumbai: Imagine appearing for the geometry examination only to find that the 100-mark paper has questions worth 20 marks from physics? Now think of the plight of the students if the pass marks in the exam is 70.
This is exactly what happened to hundreds of students who wrote the navigation paper for their commercial pilot licence examinations held this week.
“I was distraught when I started reading the navigation question paper and found the questions, one after the other, were related to the technical subject. For a moment, I thought I got the exam time-table wrong,” a CPL aspirant said.
Hundreds of pilot-training students across India have been wondering why their question paper was so unfair. “Students in Bangalore and Delhi have started a signature campaign to bring this to the attention of the director-general of civil aviation. We plan to submit our complaint soon,” a Mumbai student said. What students are certain of is a very high percentage of failure this time.
Students will have to wait for three months to attempt navigation the second time. DGCA Nasim Zaidi was not available for comments despite repeated attempts.
To get the commerical pilot licence, a student has to do 200 hours of flying training and clear written exams in four subjects: air meteorology, air regulations, technical (general and specific) and navigation.
