High Scoring Plus II Answer Sheets to be Re – Evaluated
Even though Plus II results are yet to be announced, around 2,000 students have secured 90% or above marks in the examination, sources said. Three subject experts will scrutinize their answer sheets, which were segregated from the rest, before results are published tentatively towards May – end.
“The examination committee will very soon decide on how to go about these answer books,” Council Chairman Nihar Ranjan Patnaik told press peoples on 8th May, 2012.
Council sources said the subject experts concerned will re – confirm that the valuation has been done without any bias towards or against any student. But as such they will not award marks on their own. Majority of the high scorers are from science stream, though there are some from arts and commerce streams as well.
In case the subject experts raise doubts about favours being shown to certain students, their papers will go to a higher level committee for further authentication. “The idea is to remove any doubt about fairness in the evaluation process and to eliminate all chances of manipulation,” another senior council officer said.
CHSE Controller of Examinations ( CoE ) Jasobanta Behera said, “The entire process of authentication will be completed within the next one week to 10 days to publish the results on time.” He, however, declined to elaborate how the “scrutiny” is going to be done.
The CHSE had segregated the answer sheets of those getting 90% or above. During the evaluation of answers in April, CoE in a letter had asked the valuation zone Supervisors to make subject – wise packets of all such answer books. The Supervisors were told to hand over these packets to officers authorized by the Controller to receive mark foils, where marks of each student of a particular evaluation centre is entered.
After the CHSE move, some examiners were wary of awarding high marks to students to avoid the hassle of re – evaluation, sources said.
Though the CoE letter had not mentioned its intention behind the move, sources said the higher education department had asked the council to separate the high scorers’ answer papers suspecting that some self – financed colleges may be influencing the results. In 2011, majority of the top 10 positions in Plus II science stream were shared by two comparatively new self – financed colleges.
