Mangaluru: It was more tahn a shock for an SSLC student, when he found that his results result showed that he had scored just 59 marks in English subject, although he had done well in this examination. Further verification revealed that the marks shown in the result sheet were 38 short of what he had scored.
A student of St Aloysius high school, Kodialbail, Alistair Kevin Bangera has scored a total of 470 marks in SSLC. As per the marks list received along with the result, his marks in English were mentioned as 59. Feeling disappointed, he held discussions with his teachers and decided to apply for a xerox copy of his answer sheet in this subject.
On Wednesday May 23rd, he received the photocopy of his answer sheet and to his relief, Alistair found out that he had secured 97 marks in English, not 59!
It is said that in case of answer sheets were marks scored are above 90, they are scrutinized again. Extreme care needs to be taken when mentioning marks obtained by students in their result sheets.Yet, such errors occur. Correction mistakes can make or mar a student’s future, as a few marks here and there can influence the career choice of the students concerned.
Alistair found out about the blunder as he decided to get xerox copy of the answer sheet.But, there may be students who do not take the initiative to get the marks they got scrutinized even after growing suspicion about the less marks and hence permanently lose the chance of choose a career of their choice.

Growing suspicious over scoring much less that what he was expecting, Bangera considered to go in for re-evaluation of the subject paper. After discussing the matter with his teachers, he applied for re-evaluation and was proven right.
Bangera received a photocopy of his answer script and the truth came to light. With this, his total score has gone up to 510. Bangera’s overall percentage has increased from 75.2 to 81.6.
“Such mistakes occur often. However, only those students who are concerned about their marks apply for re-evaluation while most don’t. The evaluator needs to be vigilant,” said HM Jerald Furtado, of Aloysius High School.
