Inter evaluation issue to be referred to panel

Special Correspondent

Students who wrote exams in March will also be allowed to apply for re-verification


Inter supplementary to end on June 10 and results announced by July 5

Evaluators who erred while correcting papers to be debarred


HYDERABAD: Students who wrote the Intermediate first and second year examinations in March will also be allowed to apply for re-verification of marks they secured in different subjects, from July 6 to 12 along with those who are now writing the advance supplementary examinations.

This decision was taken by Chief Minister K. Rosaiah while reviewing the issue of evaluators committing serious mistakes while correcting papers at a meeting with Secondary Education Minister D. Manikya Varaprasada Rao and senior Board of Intermediate Education officials here on Friday.

Mr Rosaiah also decided to refer the issue of defective evaluation of Intermediate exam answer papers to a high-level committee headed by a senior officer.

The committee would study the entire gamut of the system and submit the report to the government with recommendations for rectification.

Mr Rao told The Hindu that the Chief Minister had also taken into cognisance the representations received by him from various parties and citizen organisations. He said the supplementary examinations would end on June 10 and the results announced by July 5.

From July 6 to 12, two categories of students—those who wrote the examinations in March last and those who were appearing for supplementary examinations now--could apply for re-verification of the marks.

The results would be conveyed in 15 days thereafter.

Slight variation

The Minister said 16,278 of the students who wrote the examination in March had applied for re-verification. During the re-verification, the authorities did not find any big variation between the marks printed in their marks-sheets and the marks found during the re-verification. The variation in most cases was 1 to 2 marks only.

He said the government had also decided to debar evaluators who committed serious mistakes while correcting answer papers, from any such future assignment, and penalise them. However, the government would not be able to launch criminal proceedings against them as there was no prescribed law dealing with such offences.
