As important as it is to write the answers correctly, it is also important for students to fill in their details correctly in the answer sheets. Hindi daily Hindustan reported that about 5000 students did not follow the instructions carefully for filling in details in their answer booklets.
This year the board had introduced 50% objective questions in the question paper. To attempt objective questions, each answer sheet had an OMR sheet attached in the front. The OMR sheet had three parts out of which students were required to fill only the first and the third part. However, as many as 5000 students have filled in their name and/or roll number in the second part as well.
The second part of the OMR sheet was meant for the examiner to fill the marks obtained by the student. It has also been reported that the board has extended the deadline for evaluation of intermediate answer sheets to March 18.
Last year, Bihar Board results were delayed and were released in the end of May, 2017.
