PATNA: The Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) on Thursday started accepting online applications for scrutiny of Class X answer sheets and compartmental exams. More than 1,000 students, who are not satisfied with their Class X results announced by the BSEB on June 26, applied for scrutiny of answer copies on the first day on Thursday. The process will continue till July 5.
Students who failed in one or two subjects can apply for the compartmental exams. The online forms for scrutiny of answer sheets and compartmental exams are available on board’s website – www.biharboard.online.
Prem Kumar, student of a Maner school, said though he s cored satisfactorily in Hindi, mathematics and social science, the marks he received in science and English were not up to the expectation. “I was expecting not less than 60 in the two subjects. However, I got only 15 in science and nine in English,” he said.
Another student, Aarti Kumari of Bapu Smarak Mahila Uchh Vidyalaya, said she failed in mathematics. “I got only 21 in mathematics. I was confused whether I should apply for scrutiny or compartmental exam as both the processes are being carried out simultaneously by the BSEB. After consulting my teachers, I decided to apply for both. By the time, the exam board publishes the results of scrutiny, the date to apply for compartmental exam will be over,” she said.
The online form for admission to Class XI in government schools and colleges will be made available on June 30. The registration for the same has already begun.
