Bringing an important reform in its examination system, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to allow Class 12 students appearing for the ongoing board exams 2014 to fetch a copy of their evaluated answer sheets for recounting of their marks, and in case of any discrepancy, they would seek re-evaluation as well, said the sources.
Not only this, students can also seek re-evaluation for any specific question for which they doubt to have not evaluated correctly. The facility will completely be online — right from availing a copy of the answersheet to requesting for re-evaluation.
According to the sources of CBSE, the exam committee has already given its nod to the move. However, initially this facility will be available only for the papers of English, Hindi, physics, chemistry, mathematics, political science and economics. Also, there would be a limitation on the number of questions sought to be re-evaluated.
Last year, under a Supreme Court ruling, the Board had provided photocopies of answersheets to the candidates who requested for it.
