After a news report that alleged that CBSE has adopted “faulty evaluation process” in class 12 exams, the board on Monday clarified that it has received requests for verification of marks from only 2.47 per cent of the students.
As per the report, there has been an increase in the number of verification requests by students who allege that there have been severe faults in the evaluation process.
