Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is planning to stop the re-evaluation system for all subjects from 2017.
 
As per reports, CBSE has taken such a decision because the Board used to get less complaints, out of which, fewer were the genuine ones. 
 
The percentage of complaints was about 1.8 percent of the total candidates while the genuine ones came out to be around 0.05 percent. 
 
Moreover, the evaluation system already had a three-tier process, and this ensured there was little possibility of an error. Also, the board holds the compartment examinations each year.
 
According to CBSE, the step would not affect genuine complainants as an internal committee could look into the few genuine complaints and take a decision
 
Presently, the board re-evaluates the marks for Class 12 and 10 students of the roughly 250 subjects, if a student is not satisfied with marks. 
 
The practice of re-evaluation started in 2014.
