West Bengal - HS Marks to Factor in Four Best Scores in Madhyamik

  • The computation of Higher Secondary result will take into account a students best four subject scores out of seven at the Madhyamik examination two years ago along with Class XI annual theory exam and Class XII practical/project marks. Madhyamik result will be decided on the basis of a students score in Class IX term exam and internal formative assessment in Class X, with equal weightage to both.
  • The formulae to compute the marks for the two board examinations that have been cancelled this year due to the pandemic were announced by the HS council and Madhyamik board on Friday. Students dissatisfied with the result can opt to sit for a pen-paper exam at a later date when the situation is conducive; they will be issued fresh mark sheets.

  • The results for HS and Madhyamik will be declared next month.
  • Announcing the formula for HS 2021, WB Council Of Higher Secondary Education president Mahua Das said, We will give 40% weightage to Madhyamik marks, 60% weightage to the Class XI annual theory exam scores and add the marks scored in practicals for science subjects or projects for non-lab subjects to arrive at the final result.
  • The WB Board Of Secondary Examination president Kalyanmoy Ganguly announced a simpler mechanism for computing the Madhyamik result. Equal weightage will be given to the subject score in Class X terminal test in 2019 and the 2020 internal formative assessment, he said.
  • Schools will have to send the internal test marks to the HS council and Madhyamik board at the earliest to prevent the results being delayed. I am requesting all schools to submit their class XI marks by June 23 so that we are able to compute the rest of the marks and declare the results in July, Das said.
  • The initial reaction from students and teachers to the formulae was positive.
  • According to Jadavpur Vidyapith headmaster Parimal Bhattacharya, the formula adopted for Madhyamik is “scientific” and this is the best that could have been done in the current situation. “We have already submitted our Class XI marks to the council. However. I feel that in a situation like this, no merit list should be drawn up,” Bhattacharya added.
  • “In a year like this, when health issues are of primary concern, holding public exams like Madhyamik and HS would have been impossible. So this is the best that could have been done,” said Sunita Sen, principal of Ballygunj Shiksha Sadan.
  • Sanjana Gupta, a student of outgoing Class XII of the school said, “I would have personally liked to write the HS because that would have been a proper evaluation. A student’s Class XII performance is often better than Class XI. But given the pandemic situation, exams are not possible. So we will now have to do with the formula and wait for the mark sheet.”
  • The state government had taken the opinion of a six-member expert committee comprising educationists, doctors and a child rights advocate on both cancellation of the board exams and ways to evaluate 8.5 lakh HS candidates and 12.5 lakh Madhyamik examinees. The CM had also sought the opinion of students, guardians and common public before asking the HS Council and Madhyamik Board to work out a fair formula that would not penalise students.
