Kolkata: The Centre has instructed the CBSE to discuss about how to remove the disparity between marks awarded to examinees by it and that by various state boards, Union minister Satya Pal Singh said here on Thursday.

Citing an example, Singh said when students of the CBSE and various state boards seek admission in the under-graduate level of a university furnish their marksheets, it is found that their marks range from 98 per cent to 85 per cent.

The university then has to make a comparison between papers of different boards and strike a ratio to arrive at an admission formula, he said.

"We have already sent an instruction to the CBSE to discuss with other state boards on the issue," the union minister of state for human resources development said.

The CBSE is now in the process of discussing the issue, he said while interacting with the media on the sidelines of a Merchants' Chamber of Commerce and Industry programme on education.
