New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) submitted their finalised marking criteria for CBSE Class 12 students to the Supreme Court today.
According to the result criterion, the marks will be based on unit test/mid-term/pre-board exam and 40 per cent weightage will be given. Results are likely to be declared by July 31.
Attorney General K.K. Venugopal, representing the CBSE, submitted that the marks of practical/internal assessment etc. of Class 12 student will be on an actual basis as uploaded by the school on the CBSE portal.
A bench headed by Justice A.M. Khanwilkar is hearing the matter.
In its response in the top court, CBSE said that the total marks awarded should be in consonance with the past performance of the school in Class 12 Board Examinations.
As per the criterion, the computation of theory marks for Class 12 will be based on performance in one or more Unit Test(s)/Mid-Term/Pre-Board(s) theory examination.
The resulting committee of the school can decide the weightage to be given to each exam based on the credibility and reliability of the assessment.
The board submitted that the performance of the students in Class 11 and Class 10 exams will also be factored in while making the assessments.
The CBSE said while 30 per cent of marks will be based on Class 11 final exam, 30 per cent marks based on best-of-three Class 10 marks will also be included while making the assessment.
In the affidavit, the CBSE added that a result committee under the principal of the school will be formed in each school comprising of two senior-most PGT from the same school and two PGT from neighbouring schools.
The committee has also been given the liberty to prepare the result by following the policy.
