The Board had scrapped the provision of re-evaluation from this year. This was challenged in court and HC ruled in the favour of the petitioners.

On June 28, CBSE issued a notice stating that applications for scrutiny of marks "for particular question(s) only in theory paper shall be received from July 1 to July 7." Only those Class XII candidates who have applied for obtaining photocopy of the evaluated answer book shall be eligible to apply for scrutiny of marks awarded to any question(s) as per the available marking scheme, said CBSE.

 

 

The provision has been extended to 12 subjects — English core, English elective (CBSE), English elective (NCERT), Hindi core, Hindi elective, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, business studies, economics and accountancy.

 

For Class X, CBSE stated that "in the event of receiving representations relating to non-awarding of marks to particular question(s) as per marking scheme and/or unevaluated portion of the answer book, the same shall be dealt as per procedure followed for verification of grades." A candidate can apply for scrutiny of a maximum of 10 questions for theory portion of the given subjects. Fresh statement of marks will be issued only if variation of five and above marks is found after scrutiny.
