CBSE 10th, 12th Exams 2020 Marking System: With the rise of COVID-19 cases, the remaining board exams for students of Classes 10 and 12 in schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) will not be held as scheduled in July.
Class XII students of CBSE Board will, however, have the option of either taking the exams later or to move ahead with the assessment based on their performance in the last three internal exams. The re-exam option will not be available to class X students.
The option of re-examination would not be available to the ICSE Board students — neither class XII, nor class X.
So, The CBSE result will be calculated differently for different students depending upon how many exams they have appeared in. Here is all you need to know about the assessment scheme.
The exam was not held for some 40-odd subjects; for students of class 10 and 12 who have completed all their exams, the result will be declared on the basis of their performance. The evaluation process for these exams had begun during the lockdown, as teachers were given answer scripts at their home to evaluate.
In the case of students who have appeared for more than three subjects, the ‘average of marks obtained in best three performing subjects’ will be awarded for subjects for which the exam was not held, as per the board.
For students who have appeared in exams in only three subjects, the average of marks obtained in ‘best two performing subjects’ will be awarded for papers for which exam was not held.
As per an official notification by CBSE, “There are very few students of class 12, mainly from Delhi, who have appeared in exams in only 1 or 2 subjects.” The result for these students will be calculated based on performance in appeared subjects and performance in internal or practical or project-based assessment. These students will also be allowed to appear in the optional exam conducted by CBSE to improve their performance, however, this is an option.
