The much-awaited Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 result will be out by July 31. The CBSE board on June 17 informed the Supreme Court of India that class 12 students would be marked based on Class 11 and Class 10 results along with marks for practical /internal assessment marks.
About 40% of the marks will be based on the 12th pre-board, and 30% weightage will be given to the students’ performance in Class 11 and the rest 30% will be based on results of Class 10 final exams.
The vacation bench consisting of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari was hearing the petition filed by Advocate Mamata seeking cancellation of the Class 12 CBSE and ICSE written exams.
Attorney General for India KK Venugopal has explained the method formulated by CBSE to evaluate students.
“CBSE has been in existence since 1929, and this has never happened before in the history of CBSE. They have designed this with a committee of experts. For this purpose, CBSE has taken three classes – 10, 11 and 12.” Attorney General said.
“If a student is unable to meet the qualifying criteria – now spread across three years of study – they will be placed in the “essential repeat” or “compartment” category. The students who are not satisfied can appear again when the CBSE conducted the Class 12 board exams,” Attorney General Venugopal further informed Supreme Court.
Earlier on June 1, the central government of India had decided to cancel the CBSE Class XII Board Exams because of the uncertain surge in the Covid-19 cases across the country. The move had come following the feedback from various quarters and the intervention of the Supreme Court of India.
