The board clarified that there is no unprecedented increase in number of applications for verification, retorting to some media reports.

A press statement issued by the CBSE said the CBSE carried a well-established evaluation process based on structures marking schemes prepared by experienced subject experts from reputed schools. To ensure correct marks are reflected, answer scripts are evaluated by deploying experienced subject teachers at more than 2000 evaluation centres.
