Students are now confused over whether compensatory extra marks will be given them or not.
While several reports say that CBSE will give extra marks to the students, the Board has said to news agency PTI that 'it was undecided on providing compensation to Class 10 students for an alleged error in the English question paper.'
'Evaluation is a very secretive process. Though the marking policy is always decided keeping the interests of students in mind, but an expert committee examines whether it is an error in the first place or not and how students' interest can be safeguarded," a senior CBSE official said.
'Once we are done with the preparation of the marks scheme, we will decide on the compensation marks. We will not let any student suffer because of a mistake at our end,' he further added.
