Student can check his exam papers under RTI

Written by: Staff

Bhubaneswar, Apr 25 (UNI) Evaluation of examination papers will be no more a secret affair as per the Right to Information Act.

Any student or his parents, if desire, can now check his examination papers evaluated by the teachers. Even he could see the examination papers of his competitors.

Such facility could also be extended to any citizen in the country.

Till date the evaluation of examination papers was kept in secret except in some exceptional cases when the matter had gone to the high court for revaluation of papers on some or other grounds.

According to Orissa Information Commissioner Prof Radhamohan, the Orissa Right to Information Act 2005 gives ample scope to the student, his parents or any paerson who wishes to see the examination papers.

But for this one has to apply to the Public Information Officer of the Higher Secondary Board, Plus Two Council and University or the first Appellant Authority and in worse case the Information Commissioner to avail the facility of checking the evaluation of the examination papers.

The student, he said, could also get a copy of the scheme of valuation from the concerned authority and compare the marks obtained by him.

The same procedure could also be applicable to the class examinations held by the various Educational institutions, Prof Radhamohan said.
