Evaluation of Matric papers begins today

Cuttack: Evaluation of answer sheets of this year’s matriculation examination began today across the state amid tight security. About 22,000 teachers would examine the answer sheets at 61 centres set up throughout the state.

To ease the process, the board has decided to form some units in a centre and a unit would constitute one chief examiner, three deputy examiners, 18 assistant examiners and one scrutinizer.

The role of the scrutinizer would be to check whether total marks are properly added in the answer sheets. Similarly the chief examiner will cross check the answer sheets carrying 60 marks and above and the copies of below pass mark. 

While the board has estimated to complete the evaluation process by May 12 it could be extended by two to three days if needed. Elaborate security arrangement has been put in place to avoid any untoward incident.
