CBSE submits class 12 assessment formula in Supreme Court, results to be declared by July 31 | India News

NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) on Thursday submitted the assessment system for class 12 students in the Supreme Court and said the results will be declared by July 31.
Attorney general K K Venugopal placed the scheme for CBSE which said performance of students in class 10, 11 and 12 examinations will be considered.
“For evaluating a student, his marks in best of three papers for class 10 would be given 30% weightage, for class 11 weightage of 30% and for class 12 the weightage is 40%.”
“For class X and XI the marks in best of three from five papers in term examinations will be considered. For Class XII the marka obtained in unit, term and practical’s will be taken into account.” the Venugopal said.
Result committee will be there for each of the schools to rule out advantage to students in some schools, which traditionally give high marks to students, the Attorney general added.
Venugopal said there will be a moderation committee to look into the difference in marking mechanism adopted by schools to put all students on an even keel as far as award of final marks for class XII is concerned.
“Each school has to form a result committee to take into account the marks of a student obtained in the three examinations which would be vetted by moderation committee of CBSE.”
“Historical performance of a school in Class XII board for last few years, the overall percentage of marks obtained by students in past years’ board examinations will be taken into account for moderation purposes,” Attorney general said.
“Students, who are not satisfied with the marks/grading through the present mechanism, can improve upon their marks by appearing in physical examinations which would be held as soon as the situation normalises,” he added.
SC bench of Justices A M Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari said there should be an inbuilt mechanism in the scheme to address grievance of students about marks obtained by him after declaration of results. AG said he would consult the authorities.
A committee was formed to prepare the formula for giving results and marks for class 12 students. The committee consists of 12 persons, including Joint Secretary of the Ministry of Education and senior IAS officer Vipin Kumar.
The government had cancelled Class 12th board examinations on June 1 due to the surge in Covid cases.
