Maharashtra State Education Board To Introduce Revaluation SchemeMaharashtra State Education Board has decided to discontinue the current facility of retotalling of marks in Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) examinations conducted by the Maharashtra Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education from 2013-14 board examinations.

The present scheme of retotalling only allows to check calculative errors i.e. evaluators are only allowed to recount marks and correct calculative errors and not change the marks awarded in the answer papers. For example, if a student has attempted a ‘fill in the blank’ question correctly, yet the evaluator has marked the answer incorrect, then this error remains unchanged while evaluation.

However, under the new scheme of revaluation, students will be able to apply for complete rechecking of answer sheets. A five-member committee will be formed under the guidance of the chief moderator to re-evaluate the answer sheets. only those students who apply for duplicate copies of their answer sheets can avail of this facility. The scheme of issuing duplicate answer sheets was introduced last year.

As per the scheme, students will have to get a duplicate copy of their answer sheets from their respective boards. The application for rechecking must be submitted to the board within five days of the result. For subjective answers, only an increase of 10 % or more will be awarded. A written consent of re-evaluation from a school or college teacher will also be necessary.

Students will be charged Rs 300 per subject as application fee for re-evaluation of papers. Availing a duplicate copy will cost an additional Rs 400 per paper. The process of applying for the revaluation will be – Students retrieve a duplicate copy of their answer sheet from their respective division and show it to their subject teacher in school or college. If the teacher gives a go ahead for rechecking only then they should submit the application.

Apart from the chief moderator, the committee will comprise three senior moderators of each district of the particular division and another official of the board. A final decision on the scheme by the state government is awaited.

Of the 13 lakh students who appeared for HSC exam in February-March this year, over 7,000 students applied for rechecking. Close to 4,500 SSC students of the 16 lakh also applied for rechecking. “Only about 20 genuine cases were found of the total 12,000 applications,” an official said.
