CBSE asks students not to lose heart

Submitted by Editor on Thu, 2016-03-17 15:27 Bengaluru: Considering innumerable pleas by the aggrieved CBSE students over tough class XII mathematics paper, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has promised to take remedial measures while evaluating the paper.In a press release issued by the CBSE PRO, the feedback received over the CBSE class XII mathematics paper held on March 14, 2016 by students, subject teachers and examiners will be placed before the committee of subject experts. The board will take remedial measures before evaluation.This comes in the wake of two online petitions submitted by students through change.org. Saket Ravikumar, II PU student who launched the petition, said that the question paper left many students in tears. Despite working hard, the questions were – mostly – beyond their revision material which most students refer to. About 10,000 students had signed the petition in just two days seeking leniency during evaluation.Kavana S, a student who signed the petition, stated that most students focused on the handbook and revision material to crack the exam. Except for the 5 markers, most questions did not come from the hand book. Students, now hope for either a re-exam or leniency in evaluation.
