Errors In CBSE Class 12 Results 2017-Verification Reveals Huge discrepancies in totalling exam marks


Errors In CBSE Class 12 Results: Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has declared CBSE Class 12th Results 2017 on May 29th. Days after CBSE announced the results, huge discrepancies have been reported in the marks, with several students complaining that there have been huge totalling errors.

According to Times of India, it all started when Sonali, a Delhi student, who was shocked to see that she has just scored 68 in mathematics in her Class XII exam while 99 in economics, 95 in accountancy and 96 in business studies. Another student Samiksha Sharma faced the same horror after she scored 42 in maths, while her scores in English, Business Studies and Fine Arts were pretty good.

Marks of two students who scored 42 and 68 in different subjects, went up to in 90s only after they applied to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for reevaluation.

Mohammad Affan, a Mumbai student who scored 80% and above in all his subjects, scored just 50 in maths. After verification, his marks were revised to 90, the report said.

A CBSE official admitted that the number of applications for verification of marks has been unprecedented, although he didn’t reveal the exact number, the report also stated. CBSE currently only allows verification while re-evaluation is possible only after a court order.  The Delhi High Court order had ordered the board to continue with the moderation policy, which had been scrapped by the CBSE.

A senior official with the CBSE exam branch agreed that there were mistakes in the process. He said that the difference could be due to various reasons — mistakes in totaling of marks, incorrect transfer of marks to the title page (the front of the answer books) and detachment of supplementary answer books, the daily reported.
