WBCHSE allows students to inspect answer scripts
Kolkata: The West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) has introduced a new system through which students who have already appeared for their higher secondary examination can apply for self inspection of their answer scripts.
A notification in this regard undersigned by the President of WBCHSE Mahua Das was shared in the website of the council.
An online interface will be made available at the council website from July 5 through which the students can apply for self inspection of his answer scripts of the examination by filling up a prescribed format. The student will be able to keep track of the latest status of the his/ her application submitted. The council will make the scripts available and the students will be notified to pay a visit on a particular date.
According to the notification the interface for application will be kept open for a period of six months from the date of publication of results of the HS examination of a particular year. This year, the council has announced the Higher Secondary results on May 27.
The candidate can also apply for photocopy of the answer script after self inspection to the examination section of the council.
" If a candidate is allowed to see his/ her own answer scripts then their confidence over the examination system of the Council will grow. The guardians will also be convinced of the scores of their wards," said Parimal Bhattacharjee, headmaster of Jadavpur Vidyapith.
However, the maintenance of the facilities may be a tough ask for the council if there are many applications for self inspection.
In the existing process, a candidate has to seek RTI query for self inspection of their scripts. In review or scrutiny the candidates cannot self inspect the scripts.
