Odisha Plus 2 goof-up: Errors found on first day of re-addition check


Odisha Sun Times Bureau

Bhubaneswar, June 10 :

Allegations that the Plus Two exam results announced by the Odisha Council of  Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) were faulty have been proved right after 17 of the 316 answer sheets, which were subjected to re-addition checks on Monday, showed a difference of 2 to 16 marks.

Only 17 of the 41 teachers , who were asked to join the exercise, turned up on the first day of re-addition checks, sources said.

The pace of the re-addition work has been pitifully slow as it is taking a lot of time to trace the answer papers from the store room, sources added. Even if 500 answer sheets are covered during a day it would take at least a month to complete the  exercise as nearly 15,000 students  have applied for re-addition of their marks.

Officials of the CHSE said the revised marks of the students who had applied for a re-check will be uploaded on the Council’s website and provisional certificates would also be given to them at the earliest. However, they have to wait till July for the original certificate and mark sheets, they said.
