The executive council of the Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education met on Monday 16th April, in connection with the Class X mathematics question paper, where it is being debated by two committees of the Board on whether or not there was an error in the question paper. The Board, however, is yet to announce the decision reached at the meeting.

No decision over paper error yet

On Monday 16th April, members from Goa Board's scrutiny committee and the board of studies met face-to-face to resolve the issue and also to decide if all students who have appeared for the exam should be awarded seven marks for the "errors". A panel of maths experts, comprising teachers who have been teaching the subject for 25 years and more, were called for a consultation at the meeting held on Monday 16th April, morning.

Following the meeting, the executive council of the Board met immediately in the afternoon to carry the discussion forward. Goa Board's acting chairperson Farell Furtado said, "After the meeting in the morning, the executive council met. We have decided to do whatever is in the best interest of the students." The Goa Board scrutinizer, who is the first to open the sealed question papers before their distribution for the Class X public exam to centers across Goa, had written in his report that two mistakes were found in the maths question paper.

The report said that, in the maths paper held on April 9, one question was out of syllabus, while the other had a printing mistake. Some students while answering the exams had also complained to their respective supervisors that they suspected that there were errors in the question paper. Both questions together are worth seven marks. Goa Board officials found substance in the students' complaints after referring to the scrutinizer's report, and on verifying the claims independently from a few mathematics teachers.

The Board was preparing to call an executive council meeting to decide on the award of the seven marks to all students on account of the "error". However, some members from the board of studies objected and said that there had been no mistakes in the paper. They claimed that the questions were framed in a way that would challenge the students and test their application of knowledge and therefore many students who could not solve the problems mistook it for an error.
