  • The board has prepared a list of FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) by compiling common queries.

Ahead of the publication of the much awaited CBSE Class 12 results, the Central Board of Secondary Education has answered to several questions raised by students and schools.

The board has prepared a list of FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) by compiling common queries.

In a circular, CBSE has stated that efforts are on to assist the schools in preparing the results in a time bound manner. The board also shared the list of the FAQs.

Check the list below:

Question 1: Reverse Moderation- If all the students are scoring above 33 percentage on the basis of their performance in Class10, 11 and 12, do the schools have to necessarily put their candidates in the range of below 33% marks?

Answer: In case of marks 95, 96, 97, 98, 99 & 100, the percentage of number of students should be exactly similar to the reference year.

In case of other mark bands, broadly the percentage of number of students should be similar to the reference year. Meaning thereby that if in reference year the number of students in your school were 100 and in 90 to 94 if there were 4 students and this year the number of students in your school are 200 than in 90 to 94 there should be 8 students.

Question 2: The school has got no candidate in the reference range 96 to 100 and if without moderation also student is falling in 96 to 100 percentage on the basis of performance of Class 10, 11, 12 as per Board policy, do the school has necessarily to reduce the marks of such students below 96%.

Answer: Yes. Same as the above reply.

Question 3: Forward Moderation The school has students scoring 100% marks in the reference year, beside other students in the range of 96 to 100. However, the school has got less no. of students in reference range 96 to 100 than the no. of candidates in the reference year in that subject. Can the school keep their no, of students in range 96 to 100 up to the same no. as in reference year in any subject?

Answer: From the reference year if number of students are increasing in the current year than number of students placed In a band / category will increase and if the number of students have decrease in current year with respect to reference year than number of students have to proportionately decrease.

Question 4: 6th Subject Replacing Main Subject The school has filled the marks for 6th subject and has kept the student absent in any of the 1 subjects in which he has not appeared. The moderation sheet is showing only for the 4 subject and the 6th subject is not showing as replacement. As per the Board's Examination Bye-Laws 6th subject will replace any of the subject except languages in case the student is absent as found in any of the adjoining subject with the marks of 6th subject showing in the final result in place of the other subject where the student either absent or scored less than 33% marks.

Answer: In fact this question is related to the passing criteria as given in examination bye-laws. If any candidate is absent in any 1 of the subject from No. 1 to 5 (considered as main subject) and the candidate has offered 6 subject also than replacement of 6 subject with the absent subject will be done at the time of finalisation of result by the CBSE.

Question 5: Average for First Timers The schools which are sending the candidates for the first time to the Board has got Mean National Average. The Mean National Average is far below than the average performance of these students of Class10,11 and 12 and thus severely affecting the result of student and school.

Answer: In such cases, in place of the National average, now schools have been provided National, State and District average. Such schools can opt any of the three which suits them well.

Question 6: Absent By Mistake If a student is marked absent by mistake in any of the subject in practical/project/ internal assessment or in Class 11 theory marks or Class 12 theory marks, the student is not showing in Tabulation sheet what should we do?

Answer: Any of such issue be reported to the concerned Regional Officer so that needful action could be taken at the end of CBSE.

Question 7: Changing Subject Placement Can the Regional office on the request of the school change the 6th subject of the student with the 5th subject in the Admission Master before declaration of the result?

Answer: No, no change can be made at this time.

Question 8: Changes Before Last Date The school has finalized the data deliberately or inadvertently, but now the school wants to make some changes in data. Is it allowed?

Answer: Changes can only be made before final submission of data. Thereafter changes are not permissible as this gives an opportunity for indulging in unfair activities.

Question 9: Wrong Upload The school has observed after finalization of marks that the marks in respect of some candidates/subjects for classes 11 and 12 have been wrongly uploaded. Is the school allowed to update these marks now?

Answer: Changes can only be made before final submission of data. Thereafter change are not permissible as this gives an opportunity for Indulging in unfair activities.

Question 10: In cases where the schools were asked to upload the marksheet of Class 10 students (of other Boards) and upload their marks, the school has observed after submission of marks that the marks have been wrongly submitted in respect of some candidates. Is the school allowed to update these marks now?

Answer: Any of such issue be reported to the concerned Regional Officer so that needful action could be taken at the end of CBSE.

Question 11: Addition of Candidate Some candidates of a school whose names were not appearing In LOC initially/now will be left out from the result. Proper permission for inclusion is available in respect of these candidates. How to get the names of these candidates included and upload the marks now?

Answer: Any of such issue be reported to the concerned Regional Officer so that needful action could be taken at the end of CBSE.

Question 12: Subject Not In Reference Year If in this session, new subject taken by the students which is not available in reference year what to do?

Answer: In such cases, the aggregate mean of all the subjects offered by the school in the reference year will be considered for moderation of marks.

Question 13: Average of 5 Instead of 6 Subjects After uploading subject wise marks when the school goes to student wise details then CBSE portal shows the marks of only five subjects even if students have six subjects. Should we finally submit/upload the result as we are ready with it?

Answer: Yes, it will show for main 5 subjects as total is calculated from 5 subjects only. However 6th subject data will remain intact.

Question 14: Better Current Performance The current batch of my school is better. However, the subject average etc given of reference year if applied on the current year batch, students will be at a loss. What should we do?

Answer: Schools have been given reference year which is the test result of past three years. School has to moderate the marks by following the Tabulation Policy without any deviation.

Question 15: Increase Number of Students As in the current year, the number of students in our school has increased from the reference year and accordingly our school average increased from 56.92 to 57.42. Therefore, 0.5 points need to be increased to maintain the subject average. Kindly advice action to taken by the school.

Answer: On increasing the number of the students in the current year will not increase the school average. School has to use the same mean as given by the CBSE.
