Supreme Court approved evaluation formula for Class 12: CBSE to declare results by July 31


Posted: 18-June-2021

CBSE Board Class 12 Result 2021 Updates: Ending the suspense for more than 15 lakh Class 12 students over marking scheme for the cancelled CBSE Board Exams 2021, yesterday the Supreme Court has approved an evaluation formula or marking scheme (30:30:40 formula from Class X, XI and Pre-Board Exams) for Class XII framed by CBSE and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE). The Class 12 result will be based on the Class 10 component (30 per cent) based on the best three performing subjects in the board exams, Class 11 component (30 per cent) will be based on the final exam and Class 12 component (40 per cent) based on unit test/mid-term/pre-board exam results.

Schools will have to finalise the results and upload marks on the Board’s link by July 15, after which CBSE will declare the results by July 31.
Attorney general K K Venugopal, appearing before the Supreme Court for the Centre, and solicitor general Tushar Mehta, appearing for the CBSE, explained the court the above scheme for evaluation in detail. For the practical and internal assessment component, the student will be assessed according to the actual marks submitted by the school to CBSE.

CBSE has made a provision for holding physical examination for those students who want to improve their marks later when the situation normalises. Such scores would be considered final for those students who opt to appear the physical examination. The dates for the physical examination would be announced after the declaration of results, subject to the prevailing pandemic situation.

Given the varied internal evaluation system for Class 11 and 12 in schools, ranging between the strict and the liberal, the CBSE said it would adopt a moderation mechanism to minimise the advantage to a section of Class 12 students who study in schools known for their liberal marking systems.

A 5-member ‘Results Committee’ has to be set up by each school, consisting of the principal, two senior most post- graduate teachers from same school, and two PGTs from neighbouring schools.

Marks of Class 11 and Class 12 components will be awarded at school level; they will strictly not be comparable across schools due to the variations in the quality of questions, the evaluation standard procedures and the mode of conduct of exams etc. Therefore, to ensure standardisation, each school will have to internally moderate the marks by using reliable reference standard methods as per CBSE’s moderation mechanism.
