PATNA: In the wake of the recent alleged Bihar board exam scam, the Board chairman on Monday dismissed all allegations saying that there has been no such case reported. Assuring of so much discrepancy, he said that the confusion arose as those who filled up form in both 2017 and 2018 were allotted marks from 'best of 2'.
"List of students was made. I can assure you there's not a single such case. Confusion arose as those, who filled up form in both '17 and '18, were allotted marks from 'best of 2'. 50-50 marks for theory and practical," Bihar Board chairman Anand Kishore told news agency ANI.
Students who had appeared for the Class 12th Bihar Board exams were perplexed by the inaccuracy of the marks that were allotted to them. Some claimed that they have got even more than the maximum marks in subjects that they appeared for. Some others claimed that they have been given marks in subjects for which they did not even take an exam.
The Board chairman further added that if any of the students think there is a discrepancy in the marks allotted, they can apply for an online review from May 11 to May 19.
"If a student still feels there is a discrepancy in the marks allotted, they can apply for it online from May 11 - May 19," Kishore added.
As per a report in the Times of India, a student from Arwal district said he got 38 out of the total 35 marks in mathematics (theory) while 37 out of 35 in the objective-type questions for the board exams.
Others students too reported that they had got 38 out of 35 in the theory paper of physics and zero in the objective-type questions in English and Rashtra Bhasha.
Not just more marks, a candidate from Vaishali said she secured 18 marks in Biology, an exam she never appeared for. Another candidate from Ram Krishna Dwarika College in Patna has also been given marks for an exam he never wrote.
