Cuttack: After several mistakes were found in the social science paper in Odisha’s 10th board exam on Saturday, students expressed their dissatisfaction. The examinees at Brudaban Government High School alleged that there were several questions from Set A in Set B question paper.
Moreover, question number 19 was also missing from the set. As a result, the students had only attempted 49 questions today.
The students were left worried over such a goof-up as the entire evaluation will be based on the OMR sheet and there is every possibility that they will score fewer marks for such a mistake.
Meanwhile, the examination conducting body, the Board of Secondary Education accepted their mistake and asked all the exam centres to provide a list of students who faced similar issues while appearing for the examination today.
BSE President Ramashish Hazra said, “The Board is aware of the issue which is mainly a printing error. The students need not worry as the Board will take appropriate steps in this regard.”
“Keeping in view such issues, we will re-fix the programme for the evaluation of OMR sheets and there is no need to conduct the examination again. The Board will fix up a formula and the entire evaluation will be done accordingly,” Hazra added.
