The Supreme Court of Indian is going to hear today i.e., on 17th June 2021, about a PIL filed regarding the CBSE and CICSE Class 12 board examinations. While the hearing focuses on discussing the “evaluation criteria” which the central boards will present for the canceled Class 12th exams, considering the ongoing pandemic in the country.
The last hearing of the Public Interest Litigation filed by Advocate Mamta Sharma was heard on 3rd June 2021 in a division bench, regarding the cancelation of the class 12 examinations of both the central boards and declare the results at the earliest on the basis of internal assessment, by the Judges of the Supreme Court namely, Justice M. Khanwilkar and Justice Dinesh Maheshwari.
During the last hearing, the apex court directed the CBSE to prepare 'objective criteria' for the evaluation of students after the canceled examinations of ISC for senior secondary and CISCE in two weeks.
The CBSE Class 10th Result will be out by 20th July, while the CBSE Class 12th Result will be out by 31st July 2021.
It must be noted that the CBSE has opted for 30-30-40 formulae to assess the performance of Class 12th students, under which, 30% marks will be added from the Class 10th, 30% marks will be added from Class 11th, and the final 40% marks will be added from the Class 12th assessments.
The Class 12th marks will be evaluated on the basis of Unit Tests, Mid-term exams, and pre-boards exams, which will constitute the whole 40% marks of the result.
The Class 11th marks will be constituted on the basis of the performance in all the theory papers, which will add on to another 30% marks of the result.
The Class 10th marks will be constituted on the basis of performance in the top 3 subjects out of the best 5 subjects. While these 3 subjects will be those subjects in which the performance of the student will be the best. 30% marks from Class 10th will add to the result of Class 12th.
It must be noted that during the cancellation of the CBSE Class 10h and 12th exams, it was clearly stated that the students who are unsatisfied by the results announced as per the internal assessment evaluation will be able to appear for the improvement exams once the situation of pandemic gets better. The online registration for these exams will commence soon.
As per the latest updates, the court has directed each school to constitute a committee of five members to compute the result for Class 12th students, which is to be done latest by 15th July, and the CBSE board will then finally announce the result by 31st July.
The committee must comprise of the Principal, two senior-most teachers of the school teaching Class 12th, and two other teachers from the neighboring Senior Secondary School teaching Class 12th who will be considered the external members.
