CBSE goes with 30:30:40 formula for Class XII students

Ending uncertainty over the method of calculating marks or grades of Class XII students following cancellation of their examinations due to Covid, the Supreme Court on Thursday accepted the CBSE and the CISCE formulae to evaluate pupils and publish their results next month.

“After perusing the scheme presented by the Boards, prima facie, we have no hesitation in accepting the same and permit them to proceed on that basis,” a Bench led by Justice AM Khanwilkar said. According to the scheme presented to the court, Class X, XI and XII marks will be considered in 30:30:40 ratio to prepare the final CBSE Class XII results, which would be declared by July 31.

Presenting a set of “objective criteria” of evaluation of Class XII students, Attorney General KK Venugopal said marks in best of three subjects would be considered for the purpose for Class X, XI and XII. While 30 per cent weightage would be given for Class X and XI, it would be 40 per cent for Class XII, he said. For Class XII, the marks obtained in unit test or mid-term or pre-board examinations will be considered while 20 marks will be given for practical exams.

There will be a moderation committee to examine the difference in marking mechanism adopted by schools, Venugopal told the court. Schools are required to form a result committee to consider the marks of a student in the three examinations, and it would be vetted by the CBSE moderation committee, he explained.

The CBSE said the historical performance of the school, in terms of the best overall performance in the previous three years’ board examination, would be taken as the reference for moderating the marks assessed by the schools for 2020-21. The CBSE said if a student wasn’t able to meet the qualifying criterion, he/she would be placed in “essential repeat” or “compartment” category.

However, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) proposed a different set of criteria to compute marks based on performance of students in the last six years and declare results by July 20.

The CISCE evaluation formula takes into account marks percentage in Class X board examinations, the project and practical work in subjects, performance of candidates in the school examinations in the subjects in Class XI and XII, measured through their best marks obtained in the two years (referred to as raw marks) and the best performance of the school in the last six years.
