How Will the CBSE Calculate Result After the Cancellation of Board Exams?

By: Avantika Bhardwaj on April 15, 2021

CBSE Board Exams 2021 – The Central Board of Secondary Education, commonly known as CBSE, has announced that Class 10th Board exams have been canceled after a discussion at the central. Though the officials have postponed class 12th board exams, yet there is no specific date declared as to when the exam will be conducted. There are over 21.5 lakh students who have registered for class 10th board exams and 14 lakh students for class 12th board exams.

Students of 12th class have beeen preparing for JEE Main Exam and the delay in board exams might affect the schedule of JEE Main Exam as well. 

Now the question arises “How will the assessment of class 10th students take place? Or How will the result of class 10th students be calculated?”. There are several speculations that have been made by students and their parents. In order to answer these questions, a meeting with PM Narendra Modi was held by the ministry of education. The education ministry clarifies that 10th class students will be promoted based on internal assessment.

Here is How Class 10th Result Will Be Calculated

Since there is no such declaration on what the exact criteria for promoting class 10th students would be, the education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank' clarified that students will be passed based on “Internal Assessment” which also includes students' performance in practical as well.

Note* Candidates who are not satisfied with the marks allotted to them as per the criteria set by CBSE, will be given an opportunity to sit in special exam once the effect of COVID-19 is nearly faded off and the condition is favorable to conduct the examination. This was informed by the education minister.  

How CBSE Board Result Was Calculated in 2020?

A very similar situation took place during the last year as well. After the outbreak of pandemic COVID-19, CBSE decided to cancel the remaining papers. Students of class 10th who appeared in three or more than three papers were allotted marks based on the average of the highest marks obtained in any three subjects they have appeared in. Students who could take only two papers were allotted marks based on the average of the two highest scoring papers.

This result was also calculated based on their performance in internal exams and practical. The criterion was set by the CBSE specially for the students who appeared in less than two papers. We are expecting the same pattern to be followed by the officials.
