Bihar Board announced class 10 results earlier this year. The board had failed Priyanka, a student of DD High School in north Bihar’s Saharsa district, in the two subjects with 29 marks in Science and 4 marks in Sanskrit. Priyanka Singh figured that there had been a mistake and quickly applied for revaluation.But she shocked after seeing the result of revaluation. Her marks in the Sanskrit paper rose from 4 to 9, but the examiner reduced her marks in the Science paper from 29 to 7.She was confident she had done well in the examinations and decided to visit Patna High Court and applied for scrutiny of marks shown against her name. But the court asked her to pay Rs 40,000 as security deposit, which she arranged and deposited, aware of the fact that she would forfeit the amount if proved wrong. The court ordered the school board to produce her answer sheets. But she noted that the handwriting on the answer sheet did not match with hers and court also demanded that the actual answer sheet be produced. The board finally admitted its mistake and agreed to take remedial measures. The girl‘s marks were revised – from 9 to 80 out of 100 in Sanskrit and from 29 to 61 out of 80 in the science theory paper, as her original copies reflected. Once this was done and the girl awarded 80 marks in science and 61 in Sanskrit, the court fined Rs 5 lakh to Bihar Board and awarded Priyanka as compensation.
