Students appearing for the All India Engineering Entrance Exam(AIEEE), 2011, will now be able to see their answersheets on the website to ensure transparency in the examination system. The answer sheets will be uploaded on the website a few days after the results are declared.
It will benefit lakhs of students who appear for the exam every year. HRD has directed CBSE to make necessary arrangements for it. Students are terming it an ‘eye opener’ which will help them assess their knowledge of any subject in detail. Experts feel that cumulative marks of all subjects do not tell the students anything about their shortcomings.
Thousands of students reappear in the exam every year to better their previous score. After assessing their mark sheets, students will be in a better position to evaluate their performance. It will help them decide if they should appear in the exam again.
This decision comes close on the heels of the recent Supreme Court decision directing examination bodies to show answer sheets to students. This exam is conducted for National Institute of Technology and other prestigious engineering institutes in the country.
