Dear CS Students,
Once again CS result time is here as only 11-12 days are remaining for the result of June 2014 CS exam. Result will be declared on August 25, 2014. I am very hopeful that most of the students will get positive result. Still there will be few unsuccessful students not ready to believe about their failure. So if you are one of those failed students and thinking there might be some error in checking of the answer sheets, then you may go for verification / rechecking of your exam sheets of CS Foundation, CS Executive and CS professional (Final) exam.
This verification / rechecking process will help you to ensure that there is no mistake regarding totaling of their answer sheet or some part of the answers are not evaluated by the examiner or marks awarded have not been carried forward to the cover page. However as per ICSI revaluation of answer sheets is not allowed at all and it is just re-totaling of answer sheets.
We all are aware about the fact that answer sheets are examined by senior members of ICSI and there is possibility for human error as far as checking or totaling of the answer sheet is concerned. Accordingly you may not feel satisfied with the examination of your answer sheets and marks awarded for the exam of CS Foundation, CS Executive and CS professional (Final). So if you are not satisfied you may apply for the Revaluationcum re-counting of Answer Sheets.
Through this brief write up an attempt has been made to share the process/procedure for revaluation of answer sheets. You will also find sample application format for re-totaling of answer sheets. I hope that the same would be of some help for you.
INSPECTION OR GETTING CERTIFIED COPIES OF CS ANSWER SHEETS
In case a candidate wants to inspect his Answer Sheet or want certified copies of evaluated answer books, the option has also been introduced for the benefit of the CS Aspirants. This facility was introduced by ICSI with effect from June 2013 Attempt. I had already shared the procedure for inspection of Answer Sheet or how to get certified copies of evaluated answer books which is available at the link below:
WHAT IS COVERED UNDER THE REVALUATION PROCESS
ICSI has not officially declared the scope of revaluation process. However the revaluation process is expected to cover the following things:
1. Whether there is any totaling error in any question; or
2. Whether total marks on the cover page are rightly mentioned; or
3. Whether the answer book(s) compilation is complete; or
4. Whether any question or part thereof has remained unvalued; or
5. Whether there is any discrepancy between the marks for each question.
