Ahead of publication of the much awaited Class 12 results, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is making all efforts to address several issues and problems faced by schools in the tabulation of marks.
In a fresh circular to all schools, the CBSE has tried to address a gamut of issues including subject change and absent students.
In a notice issued on Thursday, CBSE has released guidelines and asked schools to take into account several references to the tabulation policy for Class 12.
Here are the contents: Subject Change Cases (Clause 14) Vide clause 14 of the “Result Tabulation Policy for Class 12", the schools were informed to use average of best three subjects for awarding marks in Class 11 in respect of the subject that has been changed from Class-9 to Class-12.
Certain instances have been reported by the schools where there is either change of total subjects or only one or two subjects of class-11 are being offered by the students In their Class-XII after due approval from the CBSE and rest of the subjects of Class-11 have been changed to new subjects.
In all such cases it may be noted that:
(a) The school will ensure beforehand that the due approval has been already obtained from the CBSE as per schedule. No fresh approval requests will be entertained.
(b) The school will do assessment of these subjects of Class-11by using the average of best three subjects from the subjects actually studied in Class-11.
In its notice, CBSE has stated that schools have reported that some students who were studying in their school at the time of submission of LOC are not available for examination/computation of result due to following reasons:
(a) The student has already taken TC.
(b) The student has ceased to be a bonafide student of the school due to any reason including demise and name struck-off cases etc.
(c) The students could not be contacted by the school for various online/offline tests/exams/assessments during the complete session are during exam/practical time table and it was and is not possible to conduct required assessments.
In all such cases it may be ensured that the students are marked ABSENT so that the result in respect of such students is not declared.
“It may be noted that data in respect of these students may not be submitted by awarding them ZERO MARK or mentioning anything else against their names,” CBSE letter read.
