After the results for Bihar’s Class 12 exams were declared last week, students claimed to have scored more than full marks. One of the students said he scored 68 out of 50 marks in English while another said he scored 38 out of 35 marks in Physics.
Some students who cleared the IIT-JEE mains exams claimed to have flunked in Physics and Chemistry.
Many other cases have unfolded. One of the students claimed that he was failed by the board despite scoring 307 and qualifying JEE Mains and other entrance examinations.
The students who protested claimed that there has been a lot of discrepancy in the paper checking and Bihar Board has compromised the results of a large number of students.
Further, when hundreds of examinees protested against the discrepancies outside the board’s office in Patna on Thursday, they were allegedly lathi-charged by the police.
The police on the other hand has denied this. The Bihar board faculty has asked the students to deal with the matter peacefully.
This isn’t the first time Bihar board has declared bizarre results. As in 2016, the state topper in Political science claimed to have ‘learned’ cooking in the subject and wrote movie name in her answer sheet.
