CBSE Likely to Relax Norms for Re-Evaluation. Starting from the current academic year, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) students are likely to get a chance to re-evaluate more subjects in Class XII final examinations.
Hyderabad: Starting from the current academic year, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) students are likely to get a chance to re-evaluate more subjects in Class XII final examinations.
The board is contemplating to extend the re-evaluation system for more number of subjects and is also planning to remove the cap of 10 questions per paper.
At present, Hindi, English, physics, chemistry, political sciences, mathematics and economics subjects were allowed for re-evaluation but was restricted to only 10 questions in each subject. The system may be extended to business studies, history and geography.
The re-evaluation system was introduced in 2014 Class XII exams in seven papers. Officials of CBSE say that the board has to take a final call on the extension of the system.
“Before the commencement of board examination, a decision will be taken,” an official said.
The CBSE had come up with examination reforms last year and allowed students of Class XII to get a copy of their answer sheets. The board, which earlier only allowed students to apply for verification, gave a chance to re-evaluate answer sheets. It also gave a chance to students to specify which questions they want to be re-evaluated on. The scheme was open to students who apply online for it.
Sources said that for verification of grades and photocopy of evaluated answer sheets will also continue.
