Anomalies in Class 10 CBSE results trigger massive protests in Bihar


PATNA—The declaration of Class 10 results by the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) has triggered massive protests in Bihar with the students and the guardians raiding schools and attacking the school officials for whimsical marking. Quite many students have complained they have not got the marks as they expected given their performance in the past.

As per the marks distribution formula prepared by the CBSE, students were to be given 10 marks based on their Periodic Test/Unit Tests, 30 marks from Half-yearly/Mid-term examinations, 40 marks from Pre-Board examinations and 20 marks from internal assessments.
