Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) confirmed that results for 2021 class 10 board examinations will be declared by July 20. The examinations were cancelled on April 15 this year in view of the second wave of coronavirus infections.
CBSE has already announced the assessment scheme for class 10 students. The authority will include 40 per cent marks from pre-board examinations, 30 per cent marks from half-yearly or mid-term examinations, 20 per cent from internal assessment carried out by schools and 10 per cent from periodic or unit tests.
Marks from best three subjects out of five would be considered for both class 10 and class 12 students.
“There are odd circumstances in front of us and examinations are not being held and without that we have to declare the result. Then the students should be properly evaluated. The situation is known, that’s why we have formed a committee. We have developed a criterion so that when the results come out it reflects similar result as students have obtained had there been examinations,” CBSE Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj told ANI.
Earlier today, the Supreme Court approved the CBSE and CISCE assessment schemes of a 30:30:40 formula for evaluation of marks for class 12 students based on their classes 10, 11 and 12 results, respectively. Several students deemed this formula unfair, sparking outrage on social media platforms.
Students unsatisfied with their results could appear for physical examination, . The online registration for these examinations will be opened shortly to ascertain the number of examinees.
“Our effort is to bring out the result as soon as possible. If any student is not satisfied with the exam result then the registration for the exam will start soon. And as soon as time is suitable we will try to allocate examination centers. With COVID-19 protocol in place we will try to conduct a physical examination,” said Bhardwaj.
Under its assessment plan for class 12 board exams, CBSE will factor in 30 per cent marks from class 10 board, 30 per cent from class 11 and 40 per cent from marks based on the performance in unit, mid term and pre-board tests. The marks obtained by class 12 students in practical and internal assessment on actual basis as uploaded by schools on CBSE Portal will be also considered in deciding final results.
Meanwhile, Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) said it will consider the performance of students for last six classes while finalising results for class 12 students.
