If a CBSE school fails to send its teachers for correcting examination papers, the school could be dis-affiliated or its board exam results could be delayed, the CBSE board has warned.
In the run-up to the CBSE examinations for Classes 10 and 12 beginning on March 3, the board has issued a circular to its schools regarding exam conduct. The warning is aimed at ensuring that schools send their teachers for exam paper evaluation work. “Non-release of teachers may compel the board to delay the declaration of the result of the defaulting institutions and also initiate dis-affiliation proceedings,” states the circular issued last month.
“Often schools do not send their teachers because of their teaching commitments at school,” said Avnita Bir, principal of RN Podar School at Santacruz.
Emphasising that careful marking of scripts and timely declaration of results is of paramount concern, the circular adds: “We need quality examiners in adequate numbers… I would appeal to you to relieve your teachers for evaluation work instead of complaining about the quality of marking subsequently.” This year 5,053 students will be writing the CBSE Class 10 exams and 2,683 students the CBSE Class 12 exams from Mumbai.
