Adding up a new provision to the students, an 'Observation schedule' has been developed by the CBSE board in the state of Dehradun, so as to address student grievances regarding question papers in examinations. This move by the board is going to benefit the CBSE students in the examinations for class X and class XII starting from March 2 this year.
This schedule will enable students to register their queries or observations regarding the board examination papers such as, questions out of syllabus, improper translation or questions beyond the comprehension level of a candidate.
On the request raised by the students, the teachers would have to fill the observation schedule form and the same would be forwarded by school principals to CBSE headquarters for consideration within 24-hours of the examination. Before taking a final step over the marking scheme, the observations will be evaluated by respective subject experts
The CBSE regional head, Manoj Srivastava said, "The observation schedule forms have been sent to all CBSE affiliated schools so as to help students to provide feedback regarding any problem in question papers."
The schools can also forward the schedules to subject experts of the region, joint secretary coordination as well as the examination controller.
