After thorough scrutiny, a revised and final key answer has been arrived at by the subject expert committee members and based on that, OMR answer sheets of the candidates have been valued through computerized electronic process.

            During the computerized scanning of OMR answer sheets of the candidates, it was found that quite a number of candidates committed mistakes in marking/shading the question paper serial code which is essential for valuation of the OMR answer sheets.
