The clarification by the board comes amid news reports claiming that there has been an increase in the number of verification requests by students who allege that there have been severe faults in the evaluation process.
"This year out of total answer scripts evaluated by the CBSE for Class XII examination 2017, only 2.47 per cent answer scripts were applied for verification by the students.
"Similarly figures for examination 2014, 2015 and 2016 were 2.31 pc, 2.09 pc and 2.53 pc respectively. This shows that there is no unprecedented increase in the number of applications for verification as stated in some news reports," a CBSE statement said.
