New Delhi: Announcing a policy for the tabulation of marks for cancelled Class X board examinations based on the internal assessment conducted by schools, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is set to announce the results tentatively by the third week of June.
According to the policy, 80 marks will be calculated on basis of the students’ performance in various tests or exams throughout the year while 20 marks for each subject will be for internal assessment as every year.
CBSE Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said the “schools will also have to ensure that the marks awarded by them should be in consonance with past performance of the school in class 10 board exams”, adding the “schools will have to form an eight-member committee headed by principal for finalising results”.
“Schools indulging in unfair and biased practices for assessment will have to face penalty or disaffiliation,” PTI quoted Bhardwaj as saying.
The Centre had last month announced to cancel the CBSE Class 10 Board exams amid growing concerns over the surge in novel coronavirus cases.
“Looking at the present situation of the pandemic and school closures, and also taking in account the safety and well-being of the students, it is decided the Board Exams for Class Xth to be held from 4thMay to June 14th, 2021 are hereby cancelled,” the Ministry of Education then said in an official notice.
Earlier, the CBSE board examinations were scheduled to begin from May 4 and would have ended by June 7 for Class 10 students and June 11 for Class 12 students.
