Students can apply for revaluation in a maximum of 10 questions each in English Core, Functional English, English Elective, Hindi Core, Hindi Elective, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Business Studies, Economics and Accountancy, the Board said. Verification of marks at designated schools has been done away with, and applications will now be received online only. The fee will be Rs 300 per subject. ens
