The Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) informed all the students who had appeared for the 10th class board examination which was held this year that they would be granted the full marks for the incorrect answer key provided by the examiners.
The chairman of BSEB Anand Kishor said that on Monday, “As soon as I got the information that there are dozens of mistakes in the answer key of science, social science and mathematics papers given to the evaluators, I asked the examination cell to look into the matter”. According to the reports, a three tier committee has been formed comprising of BSEB secretary Anup Kumar Sinha, who is the academic director AK Pandaya and Chief vigilance officer Sudhir Srivastava in this regard.
Anand Kishor also said that “The committee will inquiry into the matter and the teachers who prepared the answer key of these subjects will be blacklisted. The committee will also ensure that there is no mistake in the answer key of other subjects of Class X board exam. They will also ensure that such mistakes are not committed in future”.
Kishore also added that the evaluation work for class 10th exams is over. He mentioned that it would be really difficult for the evaluators to go through every answer booklet again that is the reason the board will award full marks for the wrongly marked question in the answer key.
The general secretary of BSSTA Shatrughan Prasad Singh said that “The decision taken by the board is an injustice to those who have given the right answers as those who answered wrong will also get full marks for nothing”. The association on Sunday pointed out the errors on answer sheets and blamed the board for the carelessness and allowing the primary and the middle school teachers to evaluate the answer sheets of the class 10th.
Shatrughan Prasad Singh also added that “We found so many problems in objective-type questions, but we can only guess how many errors were in the subjective ones. We had warned the board and the state government not to rope in primary and middle school teachers, but they didn’t pay heed. Now, who will pay the consequences? The board has played with the future of the children”.
