CBSE to Accept Re-evaluation Requests till July 7
New Delhi, July 03: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will accept applications for re-evaluation of Class X and XII answer sheets till 7 July. Only those Class XII students who have applied for the photocopy of their answer sheets will be eligible for re-evaluation.

“Request for a maximum 10 questions in theory portion in twelve subjects will be entertained at the rate of Rs 100 per question. Request for scrutiny of the marks will only be accepted once,” the board’s notification said.

Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, Economics, Accountancy, Business Studies, Hindi Core and Hindi Elective, English Core, two English Electives — one based on the curriculum of the CBSE while other on that of the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT).
The decision seems to have been prompted by the Delhi High Court rap on 23 June for scrapping the re-evaluation system.
Earlier this year, the board had scrapped the re-evaluation system. Soon after, some students challenged this decision in Delhi High Court which their petition.
The CBSE later clarified that under its new policy of providing photocopies of answer sheets, if students find any discrepancy in totaling or evaluation, the same can be brought to the attention of the board which will look into it and take suitable action.
It also added saying, “The applicant will have to refer to the marking scheme in the subject concerned, which would be available on the website along with the question paper and then submit application for scrutiny in the required question(s) with reasoning.”
