CBSE Board Exams: CBSE may opt for 30:30:40 Formula for Class XII Grades

CBSE Board Exams

CBSE Board Exams for Class XII students are likely to have their results based on their performance in the finals of class X and XI exams and class XII pre-board tests.

30:30:40 formula for CBSE Board Exams for Class XII Grades: Highlights

  • The Times of India has reported that the CBSE-appointed committee to recommend the criteria to evaluate Class XII students seems to be in favor of a 30:30:40 formula. Which means 30% weightage will be given to class X and XI final results, respectively, and 40% to class XII pre-board exams.
  • The committee is expected to announce the marking formula after submitting it to the Supreme Court on Thursday.
  • Principals have told the committee that they are in a position to mark students based on tests and exams conducted in schools during the academic year 2020-21, the report added.
  • CBSE cancelled Class XII exams on June 1 due to the COVID second wave.
  • “More weightage should be given to the Class XII periodic tests, pre-board marks, and internal assessments,” said a principal, adding that incorporating Class 11 marks will be unfair as students do not take standard XI seriously.
  • CBSE schools in Mumbai were unable to conduct offline exams and practical exams throughout the year as no physical class was held, while those in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) managed to conduct offline tests and Practicals when they were permitted to do so by the state from November last year. Schools that could not conduct their Practicals have been directed to hold online practical tests and orals. The internal assessment marks of Class XII have to be uploaded on the CBSE system by June 28.

Views of Educationists/Principals On The New Update

  • A city college principal said that CBSE can evaluate students from 2018-19 onwards as they continue their education in the same school after Class X. 
  • “It was better to take an exam and get marks rather than be evaluated for previous years,” is a popular consensus. 
  • “More weightage should be given to the Class XII periodic tests, pre-board marks, and internal assessments,” said a principal, adding that incorporating Class 11 marks will be unfair as students do not take standard XI seriously.
