Official Statement on CBSE Class 12th Revaluation

A senior CBSE official said the main reason to discontinue practising of re-evaluation is fewer complaints. He said that there were very few complaints from students and only a few complaints were found genuine ones.

 “The requests for re-evaluation are too few: just about 1.8 percent of the candidates who appeared for Class 12. Among these too, very few are found to be genuine requests. Just about 0.05 percent of the requests — which would be about 500 candidates — are found to be genuine,” the CBSE official said.

He also said that the re-evaluation system had a 3-tier process which ensured there was only a less possibility of any error. The official also said the CBSE had also to prepare for the compartment examination every year and less number of re-evaluation requests made them decide to discontinue re-evaluation process from this year.

However, the CBSE chairman Rajesh Chaturvedi said an internal committee could look into the genuine complaints of the students and will take a right decision. As per the new rules, only 10 questions of a particular theory examination can be evaluated. The unsatisfied students can apply online within a week of declaration of CBSE Class 12 Result for the verification of their marks.
