Unfair judgment of written examination.

Question

Sikkimkochora

My relative brother appeared for written examination held by HRD Department for the post of Laboratory Attendant on July 2011 and result declared on 02.02.2013 final result for viva voice is also announced after few days. His name was not there in the list of qualified candidates and he filed a RTI appeal asking for his answer script and question paper along the answer script of other (viva voice)qualified candidates. The department provided only his answer script and question paper and when he inquired about the other candidates answer script they said that its against the RTI act to disclose somebody answer script to other individual person.

When we read his answer script we found out that :

Total marks was 80 , contains 27 questions (short answer type +fill in the blanks+essay)

1) Out of 25 question (short answer + fill in the blanks carrying 2marks each) he got 6 answer wrong .

We did web research and found out that his five answer was correct and one answer had spelling mistake (out of six answer marked wrong by examiner).

 

2) Last part of question was to write any two essay out of three topics (300 words carrying 15 marks each)

He wrote well but they gave him 6 marks and 7 marks each for essay writing.

Total he scored 49 out of 80 marks(according to examiner)

 

Now my question is how do we know whether they did a fair judgement or not?

How do we draw a conclusion without comparision with other candidates answer script?and also they did not mention marginal marks for qualification?

He is suppose to score 54 0ut of 80

More or less I think they didn’t want him to score more than 49 and maybe scoring 50 marks was marginal.

If HRD Department does not agree and accept that it was unfair judgment by concerned examiner , Please suggest how do we proceed with further appeal?

Can he appeal in court for cancellation or cross-examination with other answer script? And which authority looks in this type of matter?

 

With Regards.

Sikkimkochora.

1.

Now my question is how do we know whether they did a fair judgement or not?

 

A) RTI can reveal candidate's own Marks.

 

B) Marks of other candidates can be divulged masking their identities.

 

C) In rare cases, marks of other candidates can be obtained through RTI, provided larger public interest is warranted OR by order of IC, where s/he feels the same will expose conceivable corruption involved in it(I could do it).

 

But, RTI can never give answer for fair judgment about answer scripts marked by examiners, that too for essays.

 

2.

How do we draw a conclusion without comparision with other candidates answer script?

 

Answer lies at para 1 C) If you can establish corruption involved, or for greater public interest, you may get copy of answer scripts of other candidates.

 

But that can only help you for OMR sheets. For long types, it can not help you, unless it is discovered that the candidate was not present at all.

 

 

3.

and also they did not mention marginal marks for qualification?

 

Did you askcutoff marks? If yes, go for 1st Appeal.

 

4.

Can he appeal in court for cancellation or cross-examination with other answer script? And which authority looks in this type of matter?

 

All that can be done through RTI, has been said.

After confirming the irregularities, you may approach a lawyer. In my view, without specific evidence of irregularities (doesn't seem in your case) you will get little help from court.

> You may file a RTI Application to seek a certified photocopy of answer scripts of all the candidates (you will have to have patience to work your way through to all the three levels for seeking information i.e. PIO > First Appeal > Second Appeal before an Information Commission).

 

> Apart from seeking information on answer scripts, you will need to seek a certified photocopy of answer keys against which the answers of all the candidates were evaluated.

 

> Evaluation of essays is in a way subjective, nevertheless, once you receive all the information, you may examine the same for any arbitrariness in its evaluation.

 

Please refer to the following links for help on seeking information on the subject of answer sheets:

Mr.Abhi has with authority taken pains to explain you entire process involved with great interest. You can not expect immediate results under RTI for these type of time related matters. It is suggested that you should approach High Court only for justice through a capable advocate.

      Information sought with regard to marks in Civil Services Exam cannot be directed to be furnished mechanically. Furnishing raw marks will cause problems as pleaded by the UPSC which will not be in public interest.
      The Supreme Court has held that raw and scaled marks awarded to candidates in Civil Services (Prelims) examination cannot be revealed under the Right to Information Act and set aside the Delhi high court order asking UPSC to disclose the marks. The Commission contended that the corrections made in the answer book would likely arouse doubt and perhaps even suspicion in the candidate’s mind and this would not only breed grievances, but would likely lead to litigation.
