Here's the truth behind extreme marks increased in CBSE Class 12 re-evaluation process

After reports of 50 per cent class 12 students getting more marks in re-evaluation process, CBSE has denied these facts in an official statement.

According to CBSE's official statement, out of 66,876 re-evaluation applications, there were changes in marks in 4,632 cases, which is just 6.9 per cent of the total.

 

HERE'S CBSE'S OFFICIAL CLARIFICATION

"The news report which has appeared in a prominent newspaper today stating that '50 per cent of class 12 CBSE students who asked for re-evaluation got more marks' does not withhold the scrutiny of any facts. Out of the approximately 1.5 crore answer copies (of 28 lakhs candidates of class 10 and 12 Board), over 61 lakhs copies were from class 12."

Regarding the reports of a new topper having emerged after re-evaluation, the Board also said that the story is totally baseless and factually incorrect.

HOW DID ISHRITA GUPTA BECAME TOPPER AS PER RE-EVALUATION PROCESS?

  • Dissatisfied with her marks in political science, Ishrita Gupta applied for CBSE re-evaluation process that started on June 15
  • As reported by TOI, Ishrita had scored 95 marks in all other subjects

In the re-evaluation process, it was found that 17 answers of Ishrita were incorrectly marked and after checking her scores, they increased by 22.

"Of these, there were 66,876 applications for the first stage verification process. Out of these 66,876, finally there were changes in marks in only 4632 cases, which is 6.9 per cent of the total. Hence overall, out of about 61 lakh copies, marks changed in case of only 0.075 per cent cases. Therefore, these news reports are completely misleading and have twisted the facts," the official statement added.
