The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducts the CBSE 12th board examinations every year. This year, the board has cancelled the CBSE 12th exams 2021 due to rising COVID19 cases across the nation. The government took the final decision on board exams on June 1.
Concerned about the health risks, parents and students of the state boards are requesting the officials and respective authorities to cancel the Class 12 board exam this year. In a meeting chaired by PM Modi, it was decided that the CBSE Class 12 result will be declared as per well defined objective criteria in a time-bound manner.
For the practical and internal assessment component, the student will be assessed according to the actual marks submitted by the school to CBSE. Schools will have to finalize the results and upload marks on the Board’s link by July 15, after which CBSE will declare the results by July 31.
The Class 12 result will be based on the Class 10 component (30 per cent) based on the best three performing subjects in the board exams, class 11 component (30 per cent) will be based on the final exam and class 12 component (40 per cent) based on unit test/mid-term/pre-board. The CBSE Class 12 results will be released by July 31.
Students not satisfied with such an assessment process “will be given an opportunity to appear in examinations to be conducted by the board when conditions are conducive for holding the examinations” and “as per this policy, marks scored in later exams,” the CBSE said.
