After much speculation, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declared the Class 12 board results 2017 on May 28 on its official website,

But, it seems like CBSE has not done justification in declaring results or it has probably declared the results in pressure from the higher authorities. With various reports suggesting that CBSE has made errors in totalling Class 12 marks, a question mark on the authenticity of nation’s biggest board has been raised.

Nationwide students were seen to be showing dissatisfaction over their marks obtained. Cases where retotalling marks are way above the marks released at first, are going viral over internet. CBSE’s evaluation process followed by shadowing it with ‘abnormally high’ retotalling is something that has rose many eyebrows questioning the credibility of the country’s apex educational body.

According to Times of India, students from different parts of the country had complained of less marks; however the verified marks were more than double. According to this report, in a an instance, marks in single digits went as high as 45 after reverification.

In one of the many instances, students in Odisha protested against the Board regarding the Class 12 exam result. “I was shocked to find that I have secured 5 marks in Maths and 8 in Chemistry, while my English score is 85. I am not as bad a student to fail in the exam. I don’t believe it

A recent TOI report stated that Sonali, a Delhi student, was horrified to learn, that she had scored a mere 68 in mathematics in her Class 12 board examination.

Another student, Samiksha Sharma, who wanted admission in Delhi University College was shocked to know that she scored just 42 marks in mathematics.

After that the duo applied for verification (re-totalling of marks) at CBSE . Here’ how their marks doubled:

Sonali: From 68 marks, she now scored 95

Samiksha: From mere 42 marks, her score doubled to 90

CBSE doesn’t permit revaluation of the answer sheets; instead students can apply for reverification. ‘There will be no re-evaluation of any evaluated answer. However, if any answer has not been evaluated, the same would be reported by candidate to respective Regional Offices of CBSE not later than seven days of receipt of photocopy of answer book,’ reads the Board’s notification.
