CBSE Board exam result: No further exams; Results to be declared before July 15-1

New Delhi: With the balance of the CBSE class 10 and Class 12 board exams being canceled due to COVID19 restrictions and fear among parents the CBSE has announced a methodology of marks calculation to arrive at a result. The CBSE result will be calculated differently for different students depending upon how many exams they have appeared in. The exams were scheduled from July 1, 2020.

The result as per the revised methodology will now be announced by July 15th. This in accordance with the submissions made and approved by the Supreme Court in a petition it was hearing on the subject.

Some students may have taken their earlier exams lightly and may not be satisfied with the outcome of the special scheme announced by the CBSE. In such cases, they can appear for a later exam, the dates for which have not been announced yet. However, they must note that after these exams, no improvement paper will be held as this facility is only available to class 12 students.

So what is this special scheme?
For those who have completed all their exams, the result will be declared based on their performance - Evaluation was in process during lockdown too. Most were doing it from home.

However, exams were not held for more than 40 subjects. So in the case of students who have appeared for more than three subjects, the ‘average of marks obtained in the best three performing subjects’ will be awarded for subjects for which the exam was not held, as per the board.

For students who have appeared in exams in only three subjects, the average of marks obtained in ‘best two performing subjects’ will be awarded for papers for which exam was not held.

ICSE will follow suit

The Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) said that it had also come up with an averaging formula for remaining subjects and will upload the same on its website in a week. The Council added that it may allow the option to appear for remaining exams at a later stage.
