The Board shall resort to the Moderation policy to:

  1. Compensate the candidates for the difficulties experienced in solving the question in a specified time due to misinterpretation/ambiguity of questions and errors.

  2. Compensate the vagaries and to bring uniformity in the evaluation process.

  3. Bring parity on account of the element of subjectivity involved in the evaluation process.

  4. Level up the mean achievements in the set-wise performance of the candidates attributable to the difference in the difficulty level of different sets of question papers in the multiple sets scheme.

  5. Maintain near parity of pass percentage of the candidates in the current year vis-a-vis preceding years, subject-wise and overall.
