The Supreme Court on Friday gave a go-ahead to Central Board of Secondary Education’s assessment scheme, wherein the board will give marks to students for the cancelled papers scheduled to be held in July. Notably, the CBSE filed an affidavit in the top court detailing the assessment scheme.

The board also informed the court that the CBSE Board Result Exam 2020 would be declared by July 15. The CBSE also laid out the rules based on which it will declare results.

CBSE Evaluation criteria for class 12 students

The CBSE will declare the results for all class 12 students by July 15, regardless of the subjects the student has appeared for, so as to facilitate admissions into higher education institutions. The class 12 students shall have an option of either giving the exams on a later date or to go ahead with their assessment based on their performance in the last three exams or internal assessments.  For the students who could appear in only one or two (students from North East Delhi), the marks will be a combination of the average of the performance in papers the student appeared as well as their performance in internal assessments, comprising practicals, projects, etc.

CBSE Evaluation criteria for class 10 students –

Class 10 students cannot avail the re-exam option as the core five exams for all CBSE class, 10 students, barring those from North East Delhi, were completed. The results hence calculated will be released as final.

CBSE has, however, not shared when the students need to share their choice for going ahead with the papers. Thus, it is possible that the board might give the students the choice to appear for the examination once the result is declared. The board is expected to release official notification on how the students will be evaluated on cbse.nic.in

Some Important points to remember –

  • Most of the students of CBSE Class 12 had already appeared for the papers they had opted for. For all such students, the marks would be awarded basis the performance in the examinations attempted. All such students would not get an option to appear for the examination at a later date. Their results would be binding.
  • Students who appeared in three or more papers and 1 or 2 subjects were pending, the board would be awarding students as per the average of the best three performed subjects. For instance, say a student appeared for English, Maths, Accountancy and Economics and the Business Studies paper was pending. Now, the student scored (out of 100), 75 in English, 45 in Maths, 85 in Accountancy and 90 in Economics, then the student’s marks in English, Accountancy and Economics would be considered for calculating the average marks in Business Studies. 
  • All such students would have an option of appearing for the board exam for the subject that was cancelled when it is conducted by CBSE at a later date. Students can also choose to accept the average marks awarded by the board. However, should the student choose to opt for and appear in the examination at the later date, the marks thus obtained by the students in the examination would be considered final (even if they are less than the average score that was awarded).
  • Students who appeared for only three other papers, the marks would be awarded on the basis of the average score of the two best-scored subjects appeared for by the student. For example, say the students appeared for English, Physics and Chemistry and secured (out of 100) 75, 80 and 80 marks respectively, the marks for the remaining two subjects would be given on the basis of the average of these Chemistry and Physics in this example.
  • All such students too would have an option of appearing for the cancelled papers at the later date. Again, should the students opt to appear for the examination at the later date, the marks thus obtained would be considered final – irrespective.
  • Students who appeared for only 1 or 2 papers (Students from North East Delhi), the marks would be a combination of the average of the performance in the subjects the students appeared in as well as their performance in internal assessment (practical, project, etc.). 
  • These students too would be allowed to appear for the examination at a later date to improve their performance.
  • No exams for Class 10 students would be conducted. The results thus calculated and released would be final.
  • CBSE Class 12 students would have an option to appear for the exams whose marks were awarded based on averages as detailed above. In such a case, the performance in the paper appeared would be considered. 
  • CBSE has not shared when the students need to share their choice for optional. It can be assumed the CBSE may provide the students with the option to appear for the examination once the results are declared. 

The CBSE Assessment notification detailed would be released on cbse.nic.in. ICSE Board, too, decided to cancel the pending exams. The evaluation criteria, as per CISCE Council, would be slightly difference from CBSE and students may be given an option too. The evaluation criteria of the ICSE board would be released within a week.
