BHUBANESWAR: In the midst of the controversy surrounding CBSE Class XII scores, the Higher Education Department on Saturday allowed the students, who have knocked the doors of Orissa High Court seeking re-evaluation, to apply for +3 Science courses in colleges across the State.


The HC has directed the CBSE to re-evaluate Class XII papers of 177 students who had filed a writ petition alleging discrepancies in evaluation. The release by the department stated that even as the matter is being heard by the Court, the students can apply in the colleges in offline mode at SAMS Resource Centres till June 21.


The students will have to attach a copy of the High Court order along with the application forms. After publication of final results by the CBSE, the students can go to the same SAMS centre and produce the re-evaluated results to seek admission in colleges of their choice and eligibility, the release stated.


Meanwhile, the aggrieved parents and students under the banner of Odisha Abhibhabaka Mahasangha (OAM) have decided to apprise Prime Minister Narendra Modi of the matter. “We will request MPs from the State to intervene and take up the matter with the CBSE. Apart from approaching the NCRC and NCPCR, we will constitute an expert panel of educationists to look into the re-evaluation of marks,” OAM president Sudarsan Das said.
