Stating that the Board has a well settled system to address any ambiguity in questions or discrepancy in answer keys, the Central Board of Secondary Education has released an important notice related to the CBSE Term 1 exam 2021.
The Board, which is currently conducting the Term-I Board examinations for class 10 and 12 for the session 2021-22, has informed that the pattern of this examination has been changed and is based on Objective Type Questions where answers are to be marked on an OMR Sheet.
As per the new pattern, the OMR sheets are also being evaluated on the same day of exam. Although every possible care is taken by the Board, there may still be a possibility of some ambiguity in questions or discrepancy in answer keys, CBSE said in the notice.
The Board further said that it has a well settled system to address such issues. "Therefore, it is informed that the evaluators may check/evaluate the OMRs according to the answer keys provided to them. As such, it has already been communicated to schools that if there is any observation about the question paper or answer keys, the same should sent to the Board after the examination," read the notice.
It is also to be noted that the observations or feedback received will be duly considered on the recommendation of subject experts at the time of preparation of results so that no student is put to any disadvantage, CBSE added.
