As the Class X and Class XII NIOS Board examinations results get declared, many students go for revaluation and re-examination marks. An increasing number of students avail themselves of these post-examination assessment procedures which can make their claim for good marks. Teachers scrutinize the answer script for revaluation, in comparison to initial evaluation which is done by one examiner. Generally around 10,000 students would apply for revaluation, while 1,000 for recounting. In today's competitive world where every mark counts, teachers and parents encourage students to apply for the process if they are confident. In Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, any good students who were confident of their exam performance went for evaluation.
Jyoti was happy with her total in Class XII examination, yet she applied for revaluation, hoping to see her score increase more as every marks counts. Teachers who are called in for the revaluation process say a majority of answer scripts they come across are of students who have scored above 90 per cent in a particular subject. But, not all revaluation papers should see an increase in marks. Teachers say students should apply for revaluation only if they are confident that they have performed well. Some even say it is worth applying only if the difference in margin is above 10 marks. An ideal examination system should not give any choice for revaluation or recounting but human error is possible when there are several lakh students appearing for an examination. It is possible for a good student to score low marks. There is greater awareness for reassessment of answer scripts even at degree level as students have become more conscious for the hard work they put.
