CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021 Latest News Live
Final Class 12 Evaluation Criteria for Board Exams
Due to the cancellation of the Board examinations, the assessment of the theory portion of 80/70/60/50/30 marks will be done by the school based on the following:
Class XII: Marks based on Unit Test/Mid-Term/Pre-Board Exam: 40 %
Class XI: Marks based on theory component of final exam: 30%
Class X: Marks based on average theory component of best three performing subjects out of main 5 subjects: 30%
The marks of Practical/Internal Assessment etc. of class-XII will be on actual basis as uploaded by the school on the CBSE portal.
The total marks awarded should be in consonance with the past performance of the school in Class-XII Board Examinations.
As marks of class XI and class XII component will be awarded at school level, they will strictly not be comparable across schools due to the variations in the quality of question papers, the evaluation standard and processes, the mode of conduct of exams etc.
Therefore, to ensure standardisation, each school will have to internally moderate the marks to account for the school level variations by using a reliable reference standard.
Students who are not satisfied with the assessment, done based on the policy will be given an opportunity to appear in examinations to be conducted by the board when conditions are conducive for holding the examinations. As per this policy, marks scored in later examination will be considered as final.
Circular issued by CBSE
CBSE has issued a circular today stating that the Class 12th assessment will be made as per the well defined objective criteria in a time bound manner. If any student is not satisfied with the assessment then option will be provided to the student to appear in the offline class 12th board examinations which will be conducted by CBSE as and when the situation is normal.
