The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Yesterday announced the marking policy for the cancelled Class 10 board exams 2021. The board exams were cancelled last month by the CBSE in view of surge in the COVID-19 cases in the country.
The central education board has said that the results of the 2021 Class 10 board exams will be prepared on the basis of an objective criterion that now has been developed by the CBSE board.
1. Students will be assessed out of a maximum of 100 marks for each subject.
2. According to the board policy total marks will be 100 comprising 20 marks for internal assessments and the remaining 80 marks are for year-end CBSE board exams.
3. For the preparation of CBSE Class 10 final result, each school will have to constitute a Result Committee that will consist of the Principal and seven teachers – five from Mathematics, Social Science, Science, and two languages, along with two teachers from neighbouring school.
4. For the remaining 80 marks that were reserved for Board exams, students will be assessed by a Result Committee (RC) based on the performance of a candidate in various tests conducted by the school throughout the year.
5: Weightage to each exam will be given as follows: Pre-boards (40 marks), unit tests (10 marks), and half-yearly/ mid-terms (30 marks). If a school has conducted more than one exam in each category, the Result Committee may fix the weightage to be given to each test within the category, subject to overall maximum marks for that category.
6. The marks will have to be in consonance with the past performance of the school in Class 10th boards.
It has also been said by the board that candidates who are not satisfied with the marks allocated to them (through internal assessment) will be given the chance to appear in examination as and when the conditions are conducive to monitor exams.
