The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to discontinue the revaluation practice of board exam paper.
This decision shall be regulated from the next academic session, 2017.
Following are some reasons for this change in system:
- According to CBSE Senior officials, since 2014, re-evaluation of answer sheets was done in around 10 subjects for class 12 examinations.
- They maintained that some system will be there to address genuine cases
- Actual number of students who applied for re-evaluation was only around 1.8 per cent
- Not only this, officials said the number of beneficiaries was even less
These are the factors that have lead to CBSE scrapping the system of re-evaluation.
The board has announced that:
- They are planning to hold online examinations for the next Central Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET)
- Board is going to launch digital initiatives ensuring that school exam certificates of applicants to various courses can be checked by institutions online
- Students will be able to get digital copies of their certificates soon.
- Records of various schools are also being digitized.
- Soon the process of mapping the educational audio-visual content will be available online.
Apart from that, the CBSE officials declared that review of the optional board exams for Class 10 has begun along with the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) followed in affiliated schools.
