Owing to pandemic, CBSE decided to postpone this year’s board exams. This year, results of Class X Board will be declared on the basis of an objective criterion developed by the Board. CBSE Class X scoring methodology for year 2021 has been shared with schools and schools are supposed to provide scores to the board by June end. Here is the basis of CBSE Class X scoring methodology for year 2021.
CBSE Class X scoring methodology for year 2021:
What will be the basis of CBSE Class X marks calculation for year 2021?
20 marks – for Internal assessment (which is conducted by school as part of regular board examination)
40 marks – for one or more pre-board examinations conducted by school (school may take average if multiple pre-board exams taken by school).
30 marks – for half yearly/mid term examinations conducted by school
10 marks – for period Unit Tests conducted by school
Result committee to consider marks from class IX exams if not satisfied with exams conducted internally for class X.
Who will oversee/calculate marking?
A result committee for each school will be formed, which will ensure a fair marking for its students. This will comprise of 8 members:
- Teachers of Mathematics, Social science, Science and 2 language subjects
- Two teachers from neighboring schools teaching class X
How will the results be moderated? Will schools not misuse this opportunity to get more marks for their students?
The marks have to be in sync with school’s board results last year. So, if scored had an average score of 87% last year, this year too it shall be the same. Hence, schools cant over score their students. Hence, students that belong to schools with good board results last year, have an advantage.
Similarly, schools belonging to a chain and those who haven’t gone to board exams before, the results of other schools of the chain will be considered for moderation. Again, students that belong to schools where parent schools have shown good board results last year, have an advantage.
What if student is not happy with the result?
If candidate is not happy with the results, he can appear for the exams likely to be scheduled in August/September.
