Private School student demand reduced weightage
As the class 12 board exam is slowly approaching, the students mainly from the private educational institution are demanding that the term 1 result be reduced.
It hasn’t been much long that the students have received their marksheet for the term 1 result from the CBSE Board. As the results were declared not many students were happy or satisfied. The score of only the theoretical part were declared, whereas the internal and practical scores were made available by the respective schools already.
As a result, a large number of students had raised their concerns for the same and hence demanded that less weightage should be given to the term 1 result.
Reason for less weightage
According to the reports, students were unhappy with their result because of tough MCQ questions in papers like Math, and Accountancy. Moreover, for easier subjects like English, and Business Studies lesser marks were being allotted.
Thus, many schools have urged the CBSE board to reduce the weightage and has further stated that, “unfair means and malpractices” by some schools has led to unequal marking to the students.
A letter was written to the CBSE Chairperson for the above reasons by NPSC. The letter highlighted that the term 1 result weightage should be lessened to 20 percent instead of the 30 per cent range.
However, the question remains that whether the CBSE Board listen to the concerns and announce change. As of today, no change has been made by the board, however according to sources, the board has hinted in the direction that the weightage might be equal for both terms.
