New Delhi : The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to provide compensation of two marks to Class 10th students for a typing error in English question paper.

Several students and teachers had approached the board with a plea that the paper held on March 12 had certain errors in the comprehension passage section.

In the online petition, they claimed that the students had to read a passage and write synonyms for the words endurance, obstruction, and motivation. But the paragraphs they were supposed to look at were incorrectly marked.

Reacting to it a CBSE official announced the board's decision. 

"The typing error has been noticed and it has been Board's policy to not let students face any disadvantage. The marking scheme has been decided in interest of students and all those who appeared for the particular question will be awarded two marks," a senior CBSE official said.

The Class 10th and 12th Board Examinations had started on March 5 and will conclude by April 25.
