New Delhi: Following the cancellation of Class 12 exams, the CBSE has constituted a 12 member committee to decide on the criteria for the results.
The committee, which comprises Joint Secretary Education, Vipin Kumar, Commissioners of the Kendriya and Navodaya Vidyalayas, and representatives from the CBSE, and UGC among other, will have to submit its report in 10 days.
The Centre on Tuesday had decided to cancel the CBSE Class 12 board exams for 2021, in view of the Covid situation.
Following this, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) scrapped the ISC (Class 12) exams for this year, saying that a scheme for evaluating the students will be announced soon.
Some states have also cancelled the Class 12 board exams.
Earlier today, complying with the recommendations of National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, the CBSE introduced coding and data science as skill subjects in the schools.
The CBSE also communicated to all heads of its affiliated Institutions about the introduction of 'coding' and 'data science' as a skill module or skill subject from the current session.
The CBSE wrote that coding is a creative activity that students from any discipline can engage in and it helps to build computational thinking, develop problem solving skills, critical thinking and exposure to real life situations to solve issues in various realms.
