The West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education has decided to get the answer scripts of students appearing in Class XI examinations checked by external examiners. Till now, the council used to set the question papers, which were then checked by teachers internally.
A zone or cluster of schools will be formed and the exchange of answer scripts will be reshuffled every year. There will be a separate roll number for students and admit cards will be issued by the council, said the president of West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education, Muktinath Chatterjee. It has also been decided that hence forth, Class XI results would reflect in the mark sheets of Class XII exams as total marks obtained in class XI. The total marks will be determined by combining the two language and three elective subjects, added Chatterjee. Another decision at the council on Wednesday was to introduce eight-point grading instead of the current seven points. Below 30 fail grade, 30 to 39 marks C, 40 to 49 is C+, 50 to 59 is B, 60 to 69 is B+, 70 to 79 will be A, 80 to 89 will be considered as A+ and 90 to 100 is AA. Now, both the marks and grades are reflected in the mark sheets. Instead of that, we may only award grades on the total marks instead of grades for each subject, informed Chatterjee. According to the current regulation, students failing in two subjects can appear in the examination as a special candidate the next year. Henceforth, if any student opts to improve his or her score, he or she could be given a chance to reappear in the HS examination for a maximum of two subjects. In this case, they will have to apply within a month of publication of the result. We will try our best to publish their results within the next three months. We will also speak to the university that even after three months if the results are published, the students should get admissions in colleges, Chatterjee said. The council has in principle agreed to the proposals and recommended the matter to the syllabus committee for their approval.
