Matric answer sheet goof up in Bargarh dist

The matriculation examination is embroiled in a new controvery with teachers of George High School in Bargarh coming across answer sheets of the English paper that was cancelled. The wrong answer sheets had come for evaluation. “We raised objection when we found answer papers of the old question that was already cancelled by the board. There is no logic in sending this answer paper to the valuation centre,” a teacher engaged in the valuation work said on Wednesday.

The Board of Secondary Education had rescheduled the examination for English and left over papers following the question paper leak of English. According to the teachers, most answer papers distributed for valuation on Wednesday were from the cancelled question paper. They however said they separated these answer sheets and sent it back to the board.

Admitting to the fault, the circle inspector of schools (Sambalpur) said the mistake was unintentional. “It happened because the English examination was already over when the board cancelled it. So answer sheets of that subject were sent to the board by some schools,” Sambalpur CI of schools Sangram Sahu said.
