Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is going to mark students based on the board exams which were already conducted. Students who have appeared for more than three subjects in their Class 10 and 12 board examinations will be marked for pending papers on the basis of an average, which will be calculated by combining marks scored in top three subjects for which examinations have already been held, the Central Board of Secondary Education has informed the Supreme Court in an affidavit.
For students who have written only three board papers in total, marks for exams that have not been conducted will be based on the average, which will be calculated by taking into account marks from two best performing subjects, for which board examinations have been held.
Students who have written only one or two board examination papers so far, will be evaluated on the basis of marks scored in the exams combined with internal assessment. These students will also be allowed to appear in the optional examinations conducted by CBSE to improve their performance, if they desire to do
Candidates whose results will be declared based on the assessment scheme will be allowed to appear in these optional examinations to improve their performance, if they wish so. However, the marks obtained by a candidate in these optional examinations will be treated as final for those who have opted to take these examinations.
For candidates who do not wish to opt for these exams, marks calculated through the assessment scheme would be considered as final.
Results based on the aforesaid assessment scheme will be declared by 15 July 2020 so that candidates can apply and seek admissions in Higher Education Institutions in India and abroad.
