Parents Association demands 6 grace marks in Telugu paper

Hyderabad: Claiming that there is confusion with respect to three questions in the paper, the Telangana Parents Association (TPA) on Wednesday requested the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to grant 6 grace marks to candidates who appeared for the Telugu paper.

The Times of India reported that Nagati Narayana, President TPA, wrote a letter to the secretary of the Board saying that student’s time was wasted due to ambiguity in the first part of the question number 14 in Telugu conducted on March 5 across Telangana. He feared a great chance of losing 6 marks due to confusion in the question. He further added that question number 15 and 16 were framed in such a way that the students were supposed to write direct sentences from NCERT textbooks, not giving any chance to students to answer in their own sentences.

In the light of above facts, he requested CBSE to look into the complaints pouring in from various sections and declare six grace marks to all students who attempted to answer the questions so that they do not lose the overall score.
