AHMEDABAD: In a yet another incident of negligence, a class XII general stream student was passed by the examiner despite him writing only expletives as answers in five questions while assessing his economics paper.
The boy who hails from Rajkot has also wrote about his imaginary love making experience with Bollywood stars Aishwarya Rai and Rani Mukherjee but still pass the paper by scoring 36 marks reported Times of India.
However when the moderator rechecked the paper, he noted the anomaly and failed the student giving him 14 marks. The teacher who callously checked the answer-sheet was fined Rs 1,000.
R R Thakkar, vice-chairman Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) said “this year, 1,000 teachers, who assessed class 12 general stream papers, were fined Rs 10 lakh for errors in paper checking”.
Thakkar also stressed that majority of the errors were found in totaling the marks and this kind of negligence can prove extremely detrimental to future of students whose careers depend on marks scored.
