One of the answer addresses a concern If any candidate has not appeared in any assessment then how schools will conduct the assessment of the student? To which CBSE replied, “If any candidate has not appeared in any of the assessments conducted by the school, the school may conduct an offline/online or a telephonic one to one assessment and record documentary evidence to certify the recommendations. The student may be assessed objectively on that basis by the school out of maximum marks of each subject.”
In another query, someone has asked the CBSE that in case of double-shift schools, how will the schools constitute the assessment committee? CBSE replied saying, “In all cases of schools with double shifts, the teachers are to be selected from both the shifts.

It is to be noted that the goverment decided to cancel CBSE Class 10 Board Exam 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Few days after announcing the cancellation of the CBSE Class 10 Board Exam 2021, the CBSE had introduced a new marking scheme. The CBSE also said that any candidate who is dissatisfied with the marks allocated to him/her will be given an opportunity to sit in an exam once the situation improves. According to a CBSE notification, the candidates will be assessed based on their performance in unit tests, the half-yearly examination, and the pre-board examination conducted by schools.
