Evaluators of Class 12 mathematics paper have received a circular from the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) asking them to grant marks for a “tricky” question.
A six-mark question from linear programming chapter could be perceived in two different ways, leading to two different results, which is why students should be awarded full marks.
The CBSE, in its corrigendum released on March 30, directed the evaluators to follow a separate marking scheme for question number 29 (set 1 and 2), question 27 (set 3).
Considering that students would get admissions based on CBSE Class 12 marks, many students are displeased on ‘giving away’ six marks and term the step as ‘unfair’. “With this new marking scheme, the students who have calculated it wrong will also get full marks and this is not justified to those who had spent extra time during maths paper on the tricky question,” a student from a Delhi school mentioned.
