The Top Court today approved the assessment scheme submitted by CBSE about the remaining board exams. Now the board will prepare the result for the pending subjects based on the exams already been conducted and internal assessment. And the result will be annouced by mid-July.
Class 10 and class 12 exams will not be held for remaining papers and the board may allow students to appear for the exam at a later date when the situation is conducive. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the court that it was a pro-students measure.
Meaning, that the CBSE will announce the date for the remaining exams when the COVID situation won’t be a risk and students can either opt to appear in those exams or not. One who opts will receive the result on the basis of his/her performance in board exams and one who doesn’t will get a result on the basis of the result of exams that have been conducted and internal assessment.
The top court said that when CBSE notifies exam dates, it can give students ample time to decide if they wish to appear for the exams or not.
Also, all the remaining class 10th exams have been cancelled and will not be conducted.
As per the evaluation scheme submitted by CBSE, students who sat for all their examinations in class 10 and 12 will receive their final result based on their performance in the exam.
For students who appeared for the exam in more than three subjects, the average of the marks obtained in the best of three performing subjects will be awarded for subjects for which exam could not be held.
For students who could appear for exam in only three subjects, the average of marks obtained in two best performing subjects will be awarded.
