“The committee will see to it that teachers who prepared the answer key shall be blacklisted. It is going to recheck other answer keys also. It is feeling sorry for the mistake committed and will not repeat it in the future. The evaluation process is over and done. We cannot correct the answer sheets once again.

“The decision taken by the board is apparently harmful to the candidates who have given right answers and is a boon to the students who have answered it wrong.” said Bihar Secondary School Teacher’s Association (BSSTA) general secretary Shatrughan Prasad Singh. The situation occurred because of the carelessness of the board. The board has allotted the correction to primary school teachers.
