CBSE to release exam results by July 15; SC approves assessment scheme
New Delhi : The Supreme Court on Friday approved CBSE assessment scheme to give marks to students for cancelled Class 12 Board Examination. The board will be preparing marks for the pending results on the basis of exams conducted and internal assessment performance.
The results for Class 12 will be declared on July 15, said CBSE.
Class 10 and Class 12 examinations will not be held for the remaining papers and the board may allow students to appear for the exam at a later date when the situation is conducive.
The Supreme Court was hearing a petition filed by parents who demanded cancellation of the examination and asked for marks on the basis of internal assessment and exams already held.
Similar relief was sought by the CISCE (Council of Indian School Certificate Examination) too.
The centre and the CBSE, represented in the court by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, said the assessment scheme will consider marks achieved by students in last three papers of board exams.
As per the assessment scheme, results of Class 10 and 12 students, who have completed all their exams, will be declared based on their performances in the exams. "For students who have appeared in the examinations 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," CBSE Exam Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said. "For students who have appeared in the examinations in only three subjects, the average of the marks obtained in the best two performing subjects will be awarded in the subjects whose examinations have not been conducted," he said.
For students who have appeared for only one or two exams, the assessment will be based on practical work and class projects. Such students, who are mainly from Delhi, also have the option of taking the written exams at a later date.
Schools and colleges have been closed since March when lockdown was announced to combat coronavirus cases in India.
