The Central Board of Secondary Education recently announced the assessment criteria for evaluating the results of class 10 and 12 board exams this year. The special marking scheme has been adopted in the wake of the cancellation of the exams across the country due to the resurgence in Covid pandemic. 

When Will Be Results Announced

The board has informed that the process has been initiated for evaluation of the students and the results for CBSE Class 10 and 12 Board Exams 2021 will be announced in the month of July. 

When Will Be Offline Exams Held

The CBSE has assured that students not satisfied with the marks allotted to them will have the option for appearing for the exams on offline mode. The latest tentative dates for conducting the physical exams are between August 15, 2021 and September 15, 2021 as and when the Covid situation becomes conducive.

The CBSE has prepared the following criteria for evaluation of the students' results in Class 12 Board Exams 2021. 

Class 12 - Marks will be calculated based on Unit Test/ Mid-term/ Pre-board Exam with 40 per cent weightage

Class 11 - Marking will be done based on the theory component of the final exam with 30 per cent weightage

Class 10 - The scores will be awarded based on the average theory component of the best three performing subjects out of five main subjects with 30 per cent weightage

The marks of practical exams and internal assessments will be on an actual basis as uploaded by the schools on the CBSE portal.

In case of any query, candidates are asked to login to the official CBSE website at cbse.gov.in

In order to formulate the results, the board has directed each affiliated school to form a result committee consisting of five members (1) Principal of the school (Chairperson), (2) Two senior-most teachers at the school, teaching Class 12 & (3) Two senior-most teachers from neighbouring schools teaching Class 12 co-opted as external members

Similarly, the board has also prepared the following criteria for the evaluation of Class 10 results.

CBSE had asked schools to form an eight-member committee consisting of a principal and seven teachers to finalise the results. The CBSE class 10 marks will be calculated for a total of 100 marks, out of which 40% marks will be included 30% marks from the half-yearly or mid-term examinations, 20% from an internal assessment carried out by schools, and 10% from periodic or unit tests.

Candidates who are not satisfied with the marks will be allowed to sit for a written exam, when the pandemic situation normalises.

The last date of submission of marks of class 10 students by the schools on the CBSE portal has been extended up to June 30.

In the latest development, ahead of the publication of Class 10 and 12 board examination results, CBSE has directed Regional Directors and officers to visit schools to verify the work done by the schools under their jurisdiction.

“In order to have actual information of the result work of the schools, it may be ensured that while visiting the schools, no prior intimation be given to the schools and only sudden inspection is carried out. For completing this responsibility, it is necessary that all the officials involved in this work get themselves fully accustomed to the Tabulation policy of the Board,” the CBSE said.
