New Delhi: Come 2017 and The Central Board of Secondary Education will do away with the provision of re- evaluation of answer sheets.
An Official spokesperson said “The board will however continue to redress genuine cases”.
In an official communication the board said that there were only 1.8 per cent of the re-evaluation cases being done since 2014 and the actual numbers of beneficiaries were even lesser. Re-evaluation of answer sheets was done in around 10 subjects for class XII examinations.
The Governing Body of C.B.S.E. has given its nod to the decision of doing away with re-evaluation told the chairperson RK Chaturvedi.
The chairperson also informed that two new committees have been formed - one will look at existing by-laws and the second will look at the system of examinations.
The Chairperson emphasized that the board needed more teeth to enforce the by-laws as there were many reports of violation against the schools.
There were some complaints against schools which gave transfer certificates to students in the mid-session which caused many difficulties. “The board is also planning to conduct online examinations for the next Central Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET)” said an official. Some of the other digital initiatives which the board is working upon include - school exam certificates of applicants to various courses to be checked by institutions online.
The official added that that soon students will be able to get digital copies of their certificates. Various schools records are also being digitised and they have been asked to put data related to them on their websites. CBSE officials also said they are in the process of mapping the educational audio-visual content available online, which can be used by school students.
