PANAJIi: When a Class X or XII student applies for reevaluation of marks in the subject, and if there is a change in marks post the reevaluation, the marks after the reevaluation process are counted only if they have increased over the previous assessment.
The Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Education, however, has told schools that in the case of verification of marks, the marks allotted after the verification process will be final, even if the marks have decreased.

While, in the reevaluation of marks, the entire answersheet is evaluated all over again, in the case of verification of marks it is only checked if there is a mistake in totalling of the marks allotted to answers or if any answer has been left unassessed and needs to be assessed.

“The marks obtained after the verification will be final whether the same is increased or decreased over the previous assessment,” the Goa Board has told schools.

In the case of reevaluation, the board has said that ‘the marks obtained after the reassessment will be considered if the same is increased over the previous assessment. If the variation between the original and revaluated marks is less than 10%, then the average of original and re-evaluated marks will be considered, provided the average score is not less than the original score.’

This means that marks will not decrease after a reevaluation, but can in the case of verification of marks.

In the case of verification of marks, fees paid by the student will also be refunded, if it is observed that there is change in the marks. In the case of reevaluation, however, the board has said, “No refund can be claimed after re-evaluation is carried out whether there is change in the marks/result or not.”

Students also pay more when they apply for reevaluation of marks at Rs 700 per subject, as against what they have to pay for verification.

The board is issuing the new instructions to school heads as, among other things, it wants to avoid schools from sending parents and students to the board with communication over class X and XII results.

“Make your representative visit this office for any clarification and refrain from sending parents/ students,” the board has told schools.
