Days after the Central Board of Secondary Education declared the CBSE Class 12 Results 2017, it is being reported that has been a huge error in totaling of marks. As per reports, a number of students across the country have sent their marks for verifications after they found a discrepancy in their scores.
A report in Times of India suggested a student identified as Sonali was shocked to learn that she had scored 68 in Maths. Sonali had managed to score 99 in Economics, 95 in accountancy and 96 in business studies. It was after some of the students sent a request for verification of their total marks that Sonali’s marks were doubled and went up to 95.
The report further stated that it was only Sonali who fell victim to this error, a number of students who were not satisfied with their marks sent their marks for verifications and found their scores almost doubled after the scores were verified.
Another student failed in Economic after scoring just 9 marks but landed up with 45 marks after verification. The CBSE officials have not revealed any particular reason for such unprecedented errors. Some of the students did not even go through the verification process.
“As I wanted to pursue Economics (Honours), I had no option but to go for verification. However, many others didn’t apply out of fear or thought that nothing will happen out of this exercise,” Times of India quoted Sonali as saying.
The CBSE Class 12 results 2017 were declared by the Council on the official website on May 28 amid uncertainty and ambiguity. A student of Amity School, Noida Raksha Gopal topped the exams by scoring 99.6%.Bhumi Sawant De from DAV Chandigarh stood second with 99.4% and Aditya Jain from Bhawan Vidyalaya Chandigarh took the third position with 99.2%.
