Notwithstanding the leakage reports, the Central Board of Secondary Education has come under pressure when lawmakers in parliament triggered row over the tough Class 12 maths paper held on Monday, March 14, 2016.
A circular issued by the CBSE said a committee will look into complaints and “Remedial measures could be in the form of lenient checking,” said board chairman YSK Seshukumar.
Board officials said students will get marks for correct steps instead of arriving at the exact solution of the problem.
The score in maths paper is key to those to take up engineering or JEE Mains exam. Even those applying abroad will face it challenging if their score is less in Maths.
Congress member of parliament KC Venugopal said most questions were not from the syllabus and sought the Union human resource development minister’s intervention, while BJP’s Ramesh Bidhuri blamed the previous government for the system.
