[Published on: 07.05.2021]
- The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Saturday announced a policy for tabulation of marks for class 10th board exams which have been cancelled in view of the COVID-19 pandemic situation in the country. According to the policy, while 20 marks for each subject will be for internal assessment as every year, 80 marks will be calculated on basis of the students' performance in various tests or exams throughout the year.
- "The students will be assessed out of maximum 100 marks for each subject. As per the policy of the board, 20 marks are for internal assessment and 80 marks are for year-end board examinations.
- "The weightage in terms of maximum marks for schools which have conducted the tests and exams through the year will be -- periodic test/unit test (10 marks), half-yearly exam (30 marks) and pre-board exams (40 marks)," CBSE Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said.
- The board has asked schools to form a result committee consisting of principal and seven teachers for finalizing the results. Five teachers from the school should be from Mathematics, Social Science, Science and two languages, and two teachers from neighbouring schools should be co-opted by the school as the external members of the committee. "In the pandemic situation, delivering fair and unbiased results to students on time is a challenging task. But the board is confident that every school leader and every teacher of CBSE affiliated schools will complete this process with the highest degree of professionalism, consistency, and care to ensure accurate and fair results. Schools will also have to ensure that the marks awarded by them should be in consonance with past performance of the school in class 10 board exams," he said.
- "Schools are expected to provide a fair and objective assessment of the student and have been given the autonomy and flexibility to do so. However, to take care of the variations in school level evaluation processes, there is a need to standardize the scores across schools through a process of moderation of marks," he added.
- The CBSE has also warned schools against indulging in unfair and biased practices for assessment or they will have to face penalty or disaffiliation.
- For class 12th board exams under CISCE, there is no final date announced yet. The exams stand postponed and revised dates will be announced after consider the COVID-19 situation, as per the earlier order.
- The board said that the result will be announced by 20th June 2021.
- "The schools will form eight-member result committees by 05th May 2021. The provision for school-wise distribution of marks as well as finalisation of rationale document will happen by 10th May 2021. For candidates who have not appeared in enough tests through the year, the schools will conduct online or telephonic assessment for them by 15th May 2021 and will have to finalise the result by 25th May 2021," Bhardwaj said. The controller said that the marks will have to be submitted to the CBSE by 11th June 2021 and the result will be declared by 20th June 2021.
