21 schools in Udaipur, that fall under the Ajmer division of CBSE have been instructed to re-submit their students’ assessment by 17 July. The CBSE gave a stern warning after these schools were found to have given inflated marks to students.
The 21 schools of Udaipur include reputed private schools as well KVS and NVS in the district. 586 schools in all, under the Ajmer division have been served warnings and have been instructed to submit the valuations once again. It cannot be concluded whether the schools intentionally inflated the marks to show good performance for their institutions OR whether it was because the marking criteria was not understood properly.
Earlier, after the Board Examinations were cancelled, the CBSE and Boards had submitted the marking structure to the Supreme Court, which was approved. The results for Class 10 were expected on July 20, however, with the CBSE noticing that some schools have not followed the marking formula in spirit, their results need to be uploaded once again. There are 40 schools in Udaipur and 1500 in the entire region that come under the CBSE Ajmer division.
While defining the marking structure, the CBSE has prepared a formula based on the results of the previous years. All schools that have a shown a spike in the marks allotted as compared to the average structured by the CBSE, have been served the warnings.
The CBSE had also directed its regional directors to visit the schools preparing this year’s Board results on the basis of internal marks and assess and inspect their work. The inspection was to be done in such a way that each category of schools - private, government, KVS, NVS are covered. A point-wise report had to be prepared and submitted by 12 noon on July 12
