Students and their parents staged protest in different parts of Odisha expressing their dissatisfaction HSC Results

Cuttack: 28/6/21:As some Class 10 students and their parents staged protest in different parts of Odisha expressing their dissatisfaction over High School Certificate results this year, the board today clarified marks have been awarded to the students on basis of inputs provided by high schools.

Board of Secondary Education President Ramashis Hazra said there has not been any faulty evaluation of Class 10 students. Marks were awarded to the students on basis of their score in two exams and performance during Class 7, 8, 9 and 10.

Moreover, the marks of Class 10 students have been prepared by the board after reviewing the marks awarded to them by high schools, said the board President.

Replying to a query on mark revision at some schools, the board President said everything has been done as per law.

Hazra also clarified if any student is dissatisfied with the marks awarded by the board can opt for an offline exam.

Worth mentioning, this year the State government cancelled the High School Certificate examination conducted by the Board of Secondary Education for Class 10 students in view of Covid-19 pandemic. To award marks to Class 10 students, the board followed an alternative method of assessment this year.

Earlier in the day, Class 10 students and their parents staged protests and road blockades in Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Puri, Salepur, Bhadrak and Bhanjanagar alleging faulty assessment of the Class 10 marks. The agitating students accused the board of awarding marks less than what they deserved.
