After the completion of evaluation work at the block level, copies of school-wise students and marks along with answer sheets were dispatched to the respective schools. The board emphasized the urgency of declaring the results without any delay on Monday, prompting calls for action from various stakeholders.

School management boards have raised concerns through platforms like WhatsApp and email, highlighting issues such as incorrect marking despite correct answers provided by students, discrepancies in result figures and calculations, and instances where subjects were awarded more marks than the maximum allowed. These alleged lapses have been attributed to the involvement of junior primary school teachers in the evaluation process, purportedly due to a shortage of qualified evaluators.

Shashkikumar has indicated that the Cams organization intends to lodge a formal complaint with the education department, supported by relevant documentation. The demand for corrective action to address these lapses has been echoed across the educational landscape.
