  • Odisha government cancelled the annual CHSE Plus II Exams on June 4 in view of the pandemic resurgence

The Vice Chairman of Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) Tusarkanti Tripathy on Thursday stressed that performance of students in their past board Class 10 examinations will play a big role in the Plus II results which will be evaluated by the board soon. 

Odisha government cancelled the annual CHSE Plus II Exams on June 4 in view of the pandemic resurgence with Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik calling life of students, teachers and parents more important than any exam.

CM Naveen had directed the CHSE to formulate 'a well-defined objective criteria' to award marks to plus II students after thorough consultations with experts within a stipulated time frame. State Mass Education Department had constituted a 14-member expert panel to suggest alternative evaluation criteria for Plus II examination.

The panel headed by former BSE president and Examination Controller of Utkal University Sushant Kumar Das was asked to submit its report within 10 days. The State government had said that the panel would take into consideration the marking pattern adopted by the CBSE and CISCE.

CHSE VC Tripathy while attending a meeting called by the CHSE Exam Controller said today that the expert committee will submit its detail suggestions on the marking scheme for Plus II students most likely today. 

The Exam Controller is inspecting the technical aspect with others and hopefully the report will be submitted soon,” said Tripathy.

The development comes just an hour after the CBSE and CISCE making major announcement to publish the Class 12 board results this year by July end. 

The CBSE today submitted before the Supreme Court its much-awaited evaluation criteria for awarding grades/marks for Class XII exams. 

Board has told the Supreme Court that the Class XII results will be decided on the basis of performance in Class 10 (30% weightage), Class 11 (30% weightage) & Class 12 (40% weightage).
