On a serious dispute being brought to the notice of Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Monday regarding the answer key of Odia Class-X, it was directed by the Union Minister that the dispute must be resolved within the next 24 hours and students' grievance addressed immediately and appropriately.
Accordingly, with a view to ascertaining the factual position, an expert committee was constituted by the CBSE for examining the discrepancies mentioned in the representation.
The Committee submitted its report at 6 pm on Monday and based on the report of the expert committee, the CBSE has evaluated the OMRs of Odia Class-X with the correct answer key approved by the expert committee. The revised performance of students has been since sent to the concerned schools for onward information of the students.
A total of 28,310 students have benefitted as a result of this revision.
