CBSE class 12 results to be based on class 10-11 scores; likely by July 31

  • Maximum weightage of 40% on class 12 internal test scores; 30% each on scores in classes 10, 11; CBSE submits report to Supreme Court

New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) submitted to the Supreme Court on Thursday its report on the criteria for evaluation of class 12 students this yaer. The board has said that it will announce the results by July 31. According to reports, CISCE is likely to do so by July 20.

The CBSE presented a formula of 30:30:40 ratio for class 12 results where

30 per cent will be based on scores of best three subjects in class 10 board exams, 30 per cent on final exam score of class 11 and remaining 40 per cent on unit tests/mid-term/pre-board exams of class 12.

Atorney General KK Venugopal informed the SC that a moderation committee may look into the difference in marking mechanism adopted by various schools. He added that those students who were not satisfied with the marks through this strategy could appear in the physical exams once the Covid-19 situation normalizes.

Each school will have to form a result committee that will consider the marks of students obtained in the three exams, which would then be vetted by the moderation committee of CBSE.

If students do not achieve the required marks through this criteria and are unable to meet the qualifying criteria, they will be placed in ‘essential repeat’ or compartment category, for which exam will be conducted when conducive.


Exams had been cancelled earlier this month

Due to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, the CBSE had scrapped the class 12 board exams earlier this month.

Recently, the SC had instructed the board to come up with a strategy for class 12 board results within two weeks. Subsequently, a 12-member committee had been formed to decide on the final evaluation criteria.

Meanwhile, the board allowed schools to go ahead with practical exams online. The schools have been instructed to conduct pending tests and submit the marks by June 28.
