NEW DELHI: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is likely to release the Class 12 exam 2021 marking with a 30:30:40 sharing formula soon.
The CBSE school-leaving exam which was canceled due to Covid-19, students will likely have their results compiled taking into account their performance in three past examinations: the finals of Class 10 and 11, and their Class 12 pre-board tests (30:30:40 ratio).
According to reports, the final scores will be based on a 30-30-40 split, with the latest pre-board test accounting for 40% of the weight in the final tally, and the other two equally contributing to the remaining share.
This formula will apply to the theory component of the exam, which can be 70% or 80% of the total score, while the rest is based on their performance in practicals as usual. It is to be mentioned here that even the practical exams had been held for most before the second wave of the pandemic took hold and forced schools to be closed.
Earlier the officials at the CBSE said that they would come up with "well-defined objective criteria" in a timebound manner to assess the students.
On June 3, the Supreme Court gave CBSE two weeks to come up with an evaluation formula. Following that, the Board on June 4 formed the 13-member committee that was to submit its report in 10 days, on June 14.
Meanwhile, the 13-member committee constituted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to fix the criteria to evaluate Class 12 students did not submit its report as per schedule on June 14 as the panel may take a few more days to finalize the details.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 1 had announced the cancellation of the CBSE Class 12 Board exams due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The results will be announced "on the basis of well-defined criteria," it was announced.
