Std XI students to get grace marks

The tough question paper had triggered angry reactions from students and their parents, who had gone to the extent of demanding action against the teacher responsible for setting the paper.

Sources said that it is perhaps the first time that such high marks will be given. The school board had constituted a panel of seven experts to look into the question paper issue. Following the committee’s report, the school board concluded that the paper did have many errors. The decision to award grace marks was taken on the basis of the panel’s report, as well as, considering the representations by parents.

Reasoning the difference in grace marks to Gujarati and English medium, GSHSEB chairman R. R. Varsani said that the Gujarati question paper had far more mistakes that English. He also said that there were three erroneous questions of four marks in which two options were correct. "We have decided to give marks to all those students who answered one of the options," he said.

Congress seeks guidelines:
The Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) has demanded that the state government should come out with proper guidelines and instructions on the semester system introduced from this year for class XI and XII. Congress spokesperson Manish Doshi claimed that during the first semester examination conducted in October there were no proper guidelines given to schools.
