A change in the evaluation pattern will induce chances of a delay in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) 2018 Result. Students expecting result in the month of May might have to wait for a little longer. The new pattern might be time-consuming but will ensure that there are no errors in the evaluation process. Double the time will be taken as each answer sheet will be cross-checked at different levels before marks being uploaded on the CBSE portal.

CBSE has changed the pattern of evaluation for the sake of error-free assessment of board answer sheets, the process has become time-consuming compared to the earlier one. Let us understand how the new pattern is different from the previous one. As hinted by the evaluators they are deploying more time on one answer sheet where earlier two copies were evaluated at the same time.

The new pattern for evaluation consists of three layers. First, two evaluators will evaluate one answer sheet. Second, apart from evaluation, the total marks are to be cross-checked by both the evaluators and also by the Assistant Head Examiner (AHE). Third, The AHE will handover the final score to the Head Examiner who is responsible for uploading the scores on the CBSE website.

This year the CBSE has been in news for all the wrong reasons. Earlier this year the CBSE board papers of Class 12 Economics was held on March 26, and Class 10 Maths, held on March 28, were leaked on social media hours before the examination in Delhi and Haryana. Of the three sly, two were teachers at a private school and one is a tutor at a coaching center. The coaching center owner had allegedly leaked the economics paper half an hour before the exam and sent it to the teachers on WhatsApp. All the three accused have been arrested by the police.
