Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Wednesday said it had served notices to schools in the national capital to suspend five teachers after miscalculations of up to 55 marks were found in Class 10 and Class 12 board exam papers during re-evaluation at the request of the aggrieved students.
“The re-evaluation saw some students in the Delhi region getting 50-55 marks more than what they had initially got when the results were declared in May this year. In one case, a student, who had initially failed in Urdu, passed after re-evaluation. A detailed report is being prepared in the matter,” a CBSE official said.
“Five teachers from the Delhi region, three from government schools and two from private schools are supposedly to be suspended. Schools concerned have been asked to take the prescribed action,” the official added.
A senior board official said the board is likely to serve more notices to schools over calculation mistakes found during re-evaluation of board examination papers.
The CBSE had, on June 1, started the process of re-evaluation for those who had appeared for the class 10 and 12 board examinations this year.
The board had declared both class 10 and class 12 results in the last week of May. However, candidates not satisfied with the marks they were awarded were able to apply for the re-evaluation process.
