The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has come up with a 30:30:40 formula to evaluate students over the Class 12 marks, following the cancellation of the board examinations over the Covid situation. This formula has now been submitted to the Supreme Court.
Under this criteria, 30 per cent weightage will be given to the marks secured by students in Class 10 and Class 11. The remaining 40 per cent marks will be calculated on the basis of marks secured in unit tests, term exams and practical exams of Class 12. As per reports, in Class 10 only marks from the best three out of five subjects will be considered.
Attorney General K K Venugopal, representing the CBSE, submitted that the marks of practical/internal assessment etc. of Class 12 will be on actual basis as uploaded by the school on the CBSE portal.
"The total marks awarded should be in consonance with the past performance of the school in Class 12 Board Examinations," said the CBSE in its response in the top court.
"The computation of theory marks for Class 12 will be based on performance in one or more Unit Test(s)/Mid-Term/Pre-Board(s) theory examination. The result committee of the school may decide weightage to be given to each exam based on the credibility and reliability of the assessment. For example, if the committee may be of the considered view that only the Pre-Board exams may be taken into consideration, then a full weightage can be given to that component. Similarly, another school Result committee may decide to give equal weightage to Pre-Board exams and Mid-Term exams," said the CBSE affidavit in the top court.
