Plus II result irregularities: Students gherao CHSE office, demand reevaluation

Bhubaneswar: Alleging massive irregularities in the results of Plus II examinations, which were published on Saturday, hundreds of students mostly from Science stream and their guardians gheraoed the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) office here demanding speedy reevaluation of answer papers and revision of marks.
Following the declaration of the results on Saturday it was seen that many students securing 80 to 90 per cent marks in other subjects have got only around 10 per cent in papers like Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

“I secured expected marks in Biology but I was crestfallen to get less than ten marks in Chemistry,” rued a student.

“The large scale irregularities in the results prove that the evaluation of answer sheets and publication of this year’s results were done in most casual and lackadaisical manner putting the future of many students in disarray. The Government should take up the issue seriously and ensure speedy reevaluation and revision of marks within a stipulated time,” said a protesting guardian.

The agitators, however, relented when CHSE Chairman Basudev Chhatoi assured that all the grievances of the students would be addressed soon.

“We are sensitive towards the career of our students. The complaints of erring evaluation would be investigated,” said Chhatoi.
