NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education has decided to discontinue the provision of re- evaluation of answer sheets from 2017.
However, officials said some system will still be in place for redress of genuine cases.
Senior CBSE officials told media-persons that since 2014, re-evaluation of answer sheets was done in around 10 subjects for class XII examinations.
However, the actual number of students who applied for re-evaluation was only around 1.8 per cent and the number of beneficiaries even less, a senior official said.
“Keeping these in mind, the CBSE has decided to do away with the system of re-evaluation,” the official said.
CBSE chairperson RK Chaturvedi said the Governing Body of the board has given its assent to the decision of doing away with re-evaluation.
