The students under Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has been eagerly waiting to be informed of the method of evaluation ever since the finals was cancelled. As per new information, CBSE might announce the final marking criteria for Class 12 students on June 16-17.
The updated Evaluation criteria can be accessed by the students of Class 12 on the official CBSE website-cbse.gov.in. The cancellation of final CBSE board exams for Class 12 was was declared on 1st June.
Earlier this month, the Centre had scrapped the CBSE class 12 board exams due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic across the country and decided that the board will take steps to compile the results according to well-defined objective criteria in a time-bound manner. Meanwhile, after 10 days of deliberation, the expert panel is reportedly in favor of assessing class 12 students on the basis of their final exam scores from Class X and XI, and internal marks from Class XII. The panel has received suggestions from principals of various CBSE affiliated schools, centrally-run Kendriya Vidyalaya and Navodaya Vidyalayas.
Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, who also holds the Education portfolio had also suggested ways to assess class 12 students in absence of crucial board exams. In a letter to Education Minister Nishank, Sisodia said that the result for class 12 students should be tabulated taking into account the marks scored during class 10, 11, and pre-board exams.
“Since most of the theory subjects have exams of 70 marks each, the result can be calculated as follows — 30 marks weightage for pre-board exams and 20 marks each for class 11 and 10 exams. The remaining 30 marks can be for practical exams,” his letter to Nishank read.
