Bihar Edu board ordered to pay Rs 5 lakh to candidate Priyanka Singh, heres why

Were the officials of Bihar’s education board blatant in trying to prove that a girl of class X flunked his exams even as the candidate herself insists that she has done much better. Media reports claim that the officials even tried to pass off another candidate’s answer sheet as this girl’s but were caught in the court lying.

Thus the court eventually ordered that Bihar school education board has been ordered by the high court to pay Rs. 5 lakh to Priyanka Singh who hails from north Bihar’s Saharsa district.This after the Board conceded she should have got 80 per cent in Science and 61 in Sanskrit. When the class 10 results were declared earlier this year, the board had failed Priyanka in the two subjects with 29 in science and 4 in Sanskrit. A student of a government-run DD High School, Priyanka Singh figured there had been a mistake and quickly applied for revaluation. She was in for a shock when the revaluation result came in. Her marks in the Sanskrit paper rose from 4 to 9, but the examiner reduced her score in the Science paper from 29 to 7. That is when she approached the Patna High Court.

The court wasn’t too sure if she had a case and told the student to first deposit 40,000 in the court, warning that she would forfeit the money if it was a frivolous case.

 

Once she did, the court ordered the school board to produce her answer sheets.

But the court noted that the handwriting on the answer sheet did not match with hers and demanded that the actual answer sheet be produced.

Once this was done and the girl awarded 80 marks in science and 61 in Sanskrit, the court also awarded her 5 lakhs in compensation and told the education board to order an inquiry into the entire case.

Bihar made international headlines in 2015 when parents and friends were seen scaling the walls of examination centres to pass cheat sheets to students taking their board exam. Then, last year, the state was reduced to splotchy blushes after it turned out that toppers in Class 12 had in fact hired others to impersonate them.

But thousands of class 12 students hit the streets in Patna to protest after the school board failed 65 per cent of students this year. The state government had attributed the high failure rate to curbs on cheating through use of answer sheets that have bar codes on them as a new security feature.

In Priyanka Singh’s case, the school board officials had explained the mix-up in her marks to an error due to the bar coding of answer-sheets.
