CBSE Board Exam Results 2020: The Supreme Court on Friday approved the schemes of the CBSE for the cancellations of the remaining class 10th and class 12th board exams which were scheduled to be held from July 1 to July 15.
The Supreme Court on Friday approved the schemes of Central Board of Secondary Education or the CBSE for the cancellations of the remaining class 10th and class 12th board exams which were scheduled to be held from July 1 to July 15. The apex court also approved the formula for assessment of the examinees submitted by the CBSE.
The class 10th and class 12th board exams were cancelled after the government imposed a nationwide coronavirus-induced lockdown. The CBSE then announced that it will conduct the exams from July 1 to July 15. However, the board on Friday told the top court that it has decided to cancel the examination and put forward its roadmap of assessing the students for exams which couldn't be conducted.
"For the students of both classes X and XII, who have completed all their examinations, their results will be declared based on their performance in the examinations. For students who have appeared in more than three subjects, the average of the marks obtained in the best three performing subjects will be awarded in the subjects whose examinations have not been conducted," the proposed assessment scheme by CBSE stated.
In its assessment scheme, the Board further said that the students (the ones from Delhi-NCR) who couldn't appear in the exams of one or two subjects will have their assessment of other subjects sorted out with the performance in the appeared subjects as well as in internal/practical/project assessment conducted before the exam.
The students who have appeared in the exams of three subjects, the average of the marks obtained in the best two performing subjects will be awarded in the subjects whose examinations could not be conducted.
"There are very few students of class XII, mainly from Delhi, who have appeared in the examinations in only one or two subjects. Their results will be declared based on performance in the appeared subjects and performance in internal/practical/project assessment. These students will also be allowed to appear in the optional examinations conducted by CBSE to improve their performance if they desire to do so. Results of these students will be declared along with other students," the proposed assessment scheme added further.
The CBSE has completely scrapped Class 10th Board exams, however, it has given the option to its Class 12th students to either go with the assessment as proposed or sit in the exams at a future date, which will be conducted ‘as and when the situations are conducive.’
The Board exams were scheduled to take place in March-April but a considerable number of them were varyingly left out from being conducted nationwide, and hence were postponed till July 1 to July 15, in the wake COVID-19 pandemic.
