New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has set up two committees to look into loopholes in the evaluation process after complaints by students of discrepancies in the Class XII results.

“The board has set up two committees to look into the problems related to the evaluation processes,” said a senior CBSE official said.

The first committee will look into the evaluation and post examination processes to identify and analyse discrepancies and suggest corrective measures, PTI reported.

The second panel will study and suggest improvements in the evaluation process. The two committees will submit their report within three months.

“On basis of the findings and suggestions of the committees, major changes may be introduced in the evaluation process,” the official added.

Sources said the CBSE is also considering to hold Class X and Class XII exams earlier from next year to give more time to teachers for evaluation. The board exams could start by February 15 instead of the first week of March.

After reports claimed huge differences in original and corrected totals of students, CBSE issued a clarification on Tuesday saying that “there was nothing unprecedented in such changes this time as reports suggest”.

“CBSE, being a responsive Board, has provision for verification of marks to facilitate students to avail the provision of rechecking of answer scripts where totalling of marks is done again, posting of marks on cover page of answer scripts is rechecked, intactness of supplementary answer scripts and un-assessed question, if any, is assessed afresh,” said the release.



“The system of verification of marks aims to bring more transparency and confidence in the evaluation of answer scripts.”
