New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today told the Supreme Court that in its assessment criteria for Class 12 students, performance in Class 11 and Class 10 will be factored in. The total marks will be based on the school’s past performance in Class 12 exams, it said.
The 12-member committee constituted by CBSE also told the court that the Class 12 results will be declared by July 31.
CBSE class 12 evaluation criteria 2021:
CBSE told the Supreme Court that the Class 12 final results will be decided on the basis of performance in:
.Class 10 (30% weightage)
.Class 11 (30% weightage)
.Class 12 (40% weightage)
About 40 per cent of the marks will be based on Class 12 pre-board exams, CBSE told the bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari.
The performance of the students in Class 11 and Class 10 exams will also be factored in while making the assessments, the board said.
While 30 per cent marks will be based on Class 11 final exam, 30 per cent marks based on best-of-three Class 10 marks will also be included while making the assessment, it said. Practicals will be for 100 marks and the students will be assessed based on the marks submitted by the schools.
“If a student is unable to meet the qualifying criteria – now spread across three years of study – they will be placed in the “essential repeat” or “compartment” category. Student who are not satisfied can appear again when the CBSE conducted the Class 12 board exams,” Attorney General KK Venugopal told the court.
The Supreme Court had given the Boards two weeks’ time to devise the objective criteria on the basis of which the final marks will be given to Class 12 students.
Soon after a committee was constituted by the Boards to work on the CBSE Class 12 evaluation criteria.
The government on 1 June cancelled the CBSE Class 12 board exams amid the continuing pandemic across the country. CISCE soon after decided to scrap the examinations for its ISC students.
