The Delhi High Court passed an order on Thursday asking Central Board Of Secondary Education(CBSE) to re-evaluate the answer sheets of class 12th students who applied for revaluation this year.To provide relief to students , a bench comprising Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal said that students can now seek re-evaluation in all subjects.
Earlier the board had introduced a new rule in its examination scheme that allowed students to apply for re-evaluation but restricted it to certain number of questions and subjects , however the court found this scheme unreasonable and partial and the bench observed that it would lead to disappointment and frustration amongst the students if they put in a lot of efforts and do not get the results as they expect. The bench further added that in order to ensure that proper assessment is done students have a right to get their answer-sheets re-evaluated.
Defending¬† its restriction on number of questions and subjects, CBSE said that it had to exercise some discretion ,else it would get flooded with lakhs of copies as a lot of students apply for re-evaluation. The High Court rejected its stand stating that a student’s future cannot be put to risk just because of such administrative difficulties faced by the board.
Re-evaluation is just a three step process, first the student can apply for the recounting of marks and if in doubt then he can ask for the photocopy of the evaluated answer-sheets . If not satisfied then the third step is the re-evaluation of answer sheet . All the three steps are linked and a student can’t ask for re-evaluation without following the previous two steps.
