In order to be eligible for re-evaluation, Class XII students must have applied for the photocopy of their answer sheets, the report said.

“Request for a maximum 10 questions in theory portion in twelve subjects will be entertained at the rate of Rs 100 per question. Request for scrutiny of the marks will only be accepted once,” the report quoted CBSE's notification.

The CBSE decided to re-start re-evaluating answer sheets of Class XII students after the Delhi High Court on 23 June questioned the education board for scrapping the re-evaluation system.

The board had decided to scrap the re-evaluation system this year but the decision hit a road block when the Delhi High Court accepted a petition filed by some students challenging the CBSE's decision.

The CBSE later clarified that under its new policy of providing photocopies of answer sheets, if students find any discrepancy in totaling or evaluation, the same can be brought to the attention of the board which will look into it and take suitable action.
