CBSE has reintroduced the option of seeking re-evaluation of answers for this year’s Class XII and X exams. Candidates can apply online for the process, which begins with rechecking of answer sheets, from Friday.
CBSE had decided to do away with re-evaluation in 2017, which led to some students approaching the Delhi high court. On the court’s intervention, board had allowed re-evaluation on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.
The board has also made the certificates of all 28 lakh candidates available online on DigiLocker within hours of the result being declared. Safety features on the site will help institutions and employers identify fake certificates.
Seeking re-evaluation is a three step process. The candidate has to first apply for rechecking and then ask for a photocopy of the answer sheet before being eligible for re-evaluation.
Students seeking rechecking can apply and make payments online from June 1 to June 5. Announcing the dates, HRD secretary Anil Swarup tweeted, “Rechecking/re-evaluation process and details for Classes X and XII CBSE examinations now available on CBSE web portal.”
