Following the complaints of the students against the blunders made by the CBSE in totaling the marks of the students in class 12 board exams, the board on Tuesday set up two committees with the sole purpose of studying the loopholes in the evaluation process.
“The board has taken a prompt decision to set up two committees comprising senior officers to look into the problems related to the evaluation processes being followed,” a senior CBSE official said.
"While the first committee will “enquire in to the process of evaluation and post examination processes to identify and analyze discrepancies and suggest corrective measures to strengthen the process, the second committee will study, analyze and suggest systemic improvements in the evaluation process to make the system robust. The two committees will submit their report within two and three months respectively. On basis of the findings and suggestions of the committees, major changes may be introduced in the evaluation process," the official further added.
In the complaints students said that they are suffering because of the faults in the evaluation process upon which CBSE admitted that in spite of the best efforts made by the expert teachers of the CBSE the possibility of human error cannot be completely ruled out. The chances of error are the brightest when teachers transfer the marks to the title page of the answer scripts and during the manual entry of the marks in computer system.
According to the CBSE the percentage of the students who applied for the verification of marks in 2014, 2015 and 2016 were 2.31, 2.09 and 2.53 respectively.
