CBSE to respond to plea for transparency in exam

New Delhi, May 13, 2013, PTI:

Appeal to disclose answers to JEE at time of results

The Central Board of Secondary Education was directed by the Delhi High Court on Monday to respond to a plea seeking a direction to disclose the “key answers” at the time of declaring the result of JEE (Mains) Examination.

Justice G S Sistani issued a notice to CBSE and sought its reply by May 22 on a plea filed by Kartik Narendra Jain.

In his plea, Jain had alleged that there were flaws in JEE (Mains) Examination and questioned the CBSE’s policy of non-disclosure of “key answers”.

Jain, in his plea filed through counsel Aritra Das Rashi Bansal, said, “There is no mechanism for re-evaluation and further that there is no policy of disclosing the key answers on which the answers of the students are evaluated at the time of disclosing the results.”

CBSE through its Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) conducts online entrance examinations (JEE mains) for various engineering (except for IITs), technology, architecture and planning institutions affiliated under it.

The petition also describes “certain questions in the physics and mathematics section as being vague, subjective and capable of having more than one correct answer or answers, and with no correct choice for the students to pick while answering a multiple choice objective type question”.

Citing a Supreme Court ruling over the issue, the petitioner said the system of conducting competitive examinations should be transparent and CBSE should upload the key answers while disclosing the results.
