No violations of Blue Print in +2 Maths paper: Govt
Madurai: Tamil Nadu Government on Tuesday rejected in Madras High Court Bench here the allegation that the Plus Two Mathematics question paper for the examination held on March 14 last was not set as per the Blue Print.
In her counter affidavit to a petition which contended that the paper was not set properly, Director of Government Examinations said the Book committee assessed the complaint of the petitioner and held the paper fully adhered to the Blue Print and there was no violation.
Hence the prayer of the Petitioner KR Ramalingam for setting up a high-level committee to study the question paper, did not arise at all, she submitted.
Though four complaints were received, none of them except the Petitioner`s, said that question paper was not in accordance with the blue print.
Two complaints were however valid. One related to a printing mistake in question No.13-code A. The school committee had recommended awarding mark if the students had selected either option 2(cis) or 4(cis).
Similarly in question no.41, there was a complaint from Erode District, that "-" (minus Sign) was not legibly printed. A decision had been taken to award marks uniformly even if the problem is solved by taking "5 instead of "-5" .
Justice Chitra Venkatraman and Justice S.Vimala recorded the submission and disposed of the petition.
