BSE class 10 exam 2021: Cancelled
The state government had cancelled this year’s matriculation examination in view of the pandemic and accordingly, the BSE last month had declared that nearly 98 per cent of the students, who had filled up the forms, passed the examination in different grades based on an alternative method of assessment of the students as well as their school's past performances.
However, several students from across the state, particularly from private schools alleged that they have been awarded marks below their standard and expectations.
BSE class 10 exam 2021: Controversy around evaluation method
Questioning the controversial method of evaluation, many students staged state-wide protests criticising the role of the BSE, which had tweaked with the marks of some students submitted by their respective school teachers.
Faced with all-around criticisms, the BSE in a face-saving tactic announced to hold the offline examinations for the discontented students giving just four weeks time for the students to prepare and write the examination physically at the examination centres.
The Board has also decided that the marks secured by the students in the offline examination will be final.
