As reported by TOI, students have submitted requests for re-totalling when their Maths marks did not tally with the excellent performance in other subjects. And the results have been shocking. Many students who had failed in a few papers after revision of marks were declared way beyond the red line. Also, students with mere 68 marks after revision were found to have scored a very respectable 95 in mathematics. The errors continue to highlight the strong gap in the CBSE’s result declaration system, further adding strength to case against scrapping of revaluation. The Delhi HC had in its statement asked CBSE to consider that re-evaluation is necessary. When CBSE countered that only about .21 percent pf students submitted to re-valuation, the HC countered that amounted to about 2100 students. Delhi HC would be announcing its decision tomorrow on June 19.
