Class 12th Results: Students this year will be evaluated on the basis of internal assessment marks and practical exams held during the academic year. Several boards including CBSE have also formed expert committees to take a call on the evaluation criteria.
Following the cancellation of Class 12th exams, several boards have started forming committees to decide and release the Class 12th evaluation criteria to award marks to the students. On Friday, June 11, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia wrote to the Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ suggesting that the result for Class 12 students should be tabulated taking into account the marks scored during Class 10, 11 and pre-board exams.
The exams this year were cancelled considering the safety of students amidst the Covid pandemic. Several boards including Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Odisha Council of Higher Secondary Examination (CHSE) and Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) have formed committees to tabulate marks for the cancelled board exams. While several others including West Bengal, Gujarat, Uttarakhand, Maharashtra, although have cancelled the Class 12th board exams, are yet to announce a decision on the evaluation criteria.
