The CBSE answer-sheets for classes 10 and 12 shall be started being evaluated from today and will be moved from 3,000 Cbse designated schools to the homes of qualified evaluators/ teachers who will mark them from their residence and the process is projected to be completed within 7 weeks.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is all prepared to begin the process of evaluation of answer sheets of class 10 and 12 from Sunday as the Ministry of Home Affairs has given its nod to a Human Resource Department ministry proposal in this regard.
Answer sheets will now be transferred from 3,000 designated schools to the homes of qualified evaluators who will mark them from their residence and the process is projected to be completed in 7 weeks.
With almost 18 lakh students waiting for their class 10 result and the other 12 lakh are waiting for their class 12 result, the CBSE was trying to carry on the permission to carry out the evaluation process which had been stuck because of the COVID-19 lockdown.
HRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank gave permission for evaluation in 3000 schools. He said, hope that 1.5 crore answer sheets in 173 subjects would be evaluated soon.
“From these 3000 schools these copies will go the evaluators and evaluation will begin tomorrow. Teachers will evaluate from home and we will be able to complete the process within 7 weeks,” he said. The minister said meanwhile the tests for 29 other subjects of class X and XII will be held.
According to a government official, permission of evaluation has been granted for all areas except containment zones.
The CBSE will now begin detailed planning according to which evaluation will be conducted while maintaining social distancing. Normally, evaluators were called to a center of examinations but this time keeping in mind the view of the situation, the work will be done from homes.
Meanwhile, given the situation, it is no easy task and even HRD and CBSE officials admit, the decision will now be reviewed in case the situation is not feasible.
