Putting a possible end to the speculation, CBSE said there should be no undue disadvantage students under control.
In an exclusive piece to India today, Rama Sharma, PRO, CBSE said, "The Board will ensure that students are not put to any unnecessary inconvenience while end labeling scheme."
While this certainly puts an end to speculation and gives a sigh of relief for students and concerned parents after math exam disaster that the Board shall ensure a fair process and do not cater to any unnecessary inconvenience to the students.
This was after hearing complaints from several board exam aspirants and teachers across the country who had tried grade 12 mathematics exam this year, central board of secondary education (CBSE) held a meeting with some of the affiliated school. It was also reported by the Board may consider doing the checking papers milder. The "improvement paper" can also be considered, but no official information about the same have come up so far. CBSE also confirmed that the question paper, but was unusual, but not of the curriculum. It was a program based questions papers and those with thorough knowledge and higher order thinking skills can answer.
However, there has been no official communication on grace marks or leniency under control.
Lets hope for the next positive response from CBSE for better definition of leniency under control or other formats that brings a smile on the faces of schoolchildren!
