CBSE scraps revaluation system, minimal applicants

By: Admin 30 May, 2017

Three years after the CBSE introduced revaluation of answer scripts, the board scrapped the practice from this year onwards. CBSE said while students can still apply for verification of marks, submissions for revaluation will not be entertained any more. Verification of marks would amount to rechecking and there will be no fresh evaluation of answer scripts, it said.

 

Highlights
  • CBSE has scrapped system of revaluation of answer sheets from this year onwards.
  • Students can apply for verification and rechecking of marks only.
  • The Board officials give reason that the number of students opting for revaluation is very less, only around 1.8% last year.
  • In 2014, revaluation was made available for 10 subjects of Class 12 examinations.
  • Board officials had earlier mentioned that if the revaluation was extended for all subjects, the compartment exams would be delayed.

In 2014, revaluation was made available for 10 subjects of Class 12 examinations. However, CBSE officials said the number of students who had opted for it was minimal, around 1.8% as reported last year - and the number of beneficiaries were fewer.

Although this has been attributed as the reason behind the discontinuation of the system, not all students are happy. Until now, CBSE was the only board offering revaluation as other boards like the Indian School Certificate and the Tamil Nadu state board only allow re-checking or recounting of marks.

 

The initial idea was to start revaluation with some subjects and introduce more subjects over the years. Besides the low number of applicants, board officials had earlier said if the revaluation was extended for all subjects, the compartment exams would be delayed.
