The CBSE has decided to provide compensation of two marks to Class 10 students for a typing error in the English question paper.
Teachers and students approached CBSE with the plea that the paper held on March 12 had certain errors in the comprehension passage section.
Students had to read a passage and write synonyms for the words endurance, obstruction, and motivation.
Marking scheme decided in the interest of students
The plea said that the paragraphs they were supposed to look at were incorrectly marked.
"The typing error has been noticed and it has been Board's policy to not let students face any disadvantage. The marking scheme has been decided in the interest of students and all those who appeared for the particular question will be awarded two marks," a senior CBSE official said.
