Over 14 lakh students who were to appear for Central Board of Secondary Education class 12th board exams are likely to have their results based on a special formula. The education board will mark class 12 students based on three-year performance including finals of class 10th and 11th exams and pre-board of class 12.

Most of the panelists are favoring this criterion as it is expected to give a holistic assessment of a student’s capabilities and performances.

30:30:40 formula

Earlier, CBSE has appointed a 13-member committee to recommend the criteria to evaluate Class XII students. The committee now seems to be in favor of the 30:30:40 formula. According to this formula, 30 percent weightage will be given to class X and XI final results and 40 percent to XII pre-board tests.

As per the formula, the class XII pre-board tests will have a maximum weightage of 40 percent in the final assessment. The formula will only be applicable for the 80 marks devoted to the theory section of an exam. For the remaining 20 marks, students will be assessed on the practicals and internal assessment according to usual protocol. 

In the schools where practicals could not be held due to coronavirus pandemic, virtual practicals would be held. Similarly, schools with pending internal assessment are permitted to conduct the same now in only online mode and upload marks on the provided link latest by June 28.

CBSE XII Result 2021: Date

The 13-member panel is expected to finalize the evaluation criteria today and will announce it after submitting it to the Supreme Court on June 17. If the topmost court approves it then the formula will be implemented and soon a result date will be declared. Class XII results are expected to be released by July 15. 

Earlier, the government had allowed education boards to conduct the exams of Class XII students. However, students and parents opposed it due to the raging pandemic in the country. 

Advocate Mamata Sharma filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking the cancelation of the XII board exams and demanded a uniform policy for Class XII students across India and a time-bound result announcement for CBSE class XII students to ensure no further delay in college admissions.

Following the situation, CBSE was the first to cancel class 12th exams on June 1. After this, several state boards including Maharashtra canceled their exams. Tomorrow, a release date as well as the issue of state boards and NIOS examinations are also expected to be discussed.
