Reacting to newspaper reports, the Delhi High Court said if there were errors in the totalling of marks in Central Board of Secondary Education’s Class 12 exams, then there must be errors in the evaluation process.
The Delhi High Court bench of Justices Sanjeev Sachdeva and A K Chawla were hearing a plea filed by students challenging the removal of the re-evaluation policy by CBSE.
The court then ordered the CBSE to submit the decision of its governing body and examination committee on the issue of the scrapping of the re-evaluation policy. CBSE was also directed to place before the court its marking schemes for different subjects in Class 12.
The petitioners had appeared for the Class XII board exams in 2017. They also sought parity with students from Odisha, whose answer sheets were ordered to be re-evaluated by the Orissa high court.
