Since then, there have been a complaint reporting that schools are manipulating the results just to increase their 'Market Value'. After the results were out of May 30, the doubt has increased to the peak.
According to the sources, the CCE system makes it compulsory that 70% of the assessment is done by the schools itself, on the basis of formal and informal test series. Further, the board gives other students the option to go for external board checking or be evaluated internally by their school teachers itself.
In most cases, schools had a high percentage of students with CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) of 10, the number of students opting for internal checking was way higher than those opting for the board exams- revealed the source.
A principal said "There are schools previously unheard of that have made it to the top list in Class-10 results. Ironically, they fared poorly in the Class-12 results. Obviously, there is something fishy."
Another Principal said "The CBSE provides us question papers a few days before the examinations. Since most of the exam affairs are handled by the school management now, manipulation has become easy." "I know of a couple of schools which called a surprise revision class a day or two before the exams and revealed most of the questions in the name of 'important questions'," the principal alleged.
On claiming that the number of these schools was very low, an CBSE official said, the board had been regularly conducting surprise and random checks at schools ever since the CCE was introduced.
