New Delhi [India], June 3 (ANI/Oswaal Books): Amidst the 2nd wave of COVID-19 in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has finally communicated the much-awaited update on CBSE Class 12th Examination. In a recent meeting, the PM has cancelled the CBSE Class 12 board exam 2021.
Students have received what seems to be the ‘first no exam year’ in the history of board examinations, following months of online protests. The ISC examinations for Class 12 have been cancelled by CISCE, following CBSE’s lead. Students will be graded according to the assessment standards that will be set.
The PM further emphasised that this decision has been taken after extensive consultations with high profile ministers. “It is a student-friendly decision, one that safeguards the health as well as future of our youth. Our student’s health and safety are of utmost importance and there would be no compromise on this aspect,” the PM said.
The evaluation criteria will soon be released by the CBSE and the CISCE. According to the administration, it is expected to be a “well-defined,” “objective” process that ensures fair and timely results.
What are the Objective Criteria of the CBSE Class 12th Assessment 2021?
As per some currently surfacing reports and updates from the government, students may be graded based on their previous year’s performance. This may also contain the student’s grades and performance in classes 9 to 11.
According to certain sources, it is suggested that CBSE should integrate class 10th board results as well as class 11 and 12 internal assessment marks to make class 12th evaluation simpler.
CISCE and CBSE schools were recently directed to report proper data on the performance of class 12 students in classes 11, 10, and 9. The CISCE has set a deadline of June 7 for schools to provide their detailed grades. The final decision, however, is still awaited.
It is possible that internal tests performed by schools in Class 12, as well as pre-boards and board practical exams, might be used to evaluate CBSE class 12 results.
Both the CBSE and the CISCE have stated that they would release criteria that are comparable to those used in class 10. Students who are dissatisfied with their results will be given another chance to take written tests when the situation improves, according to the boards.
The elaborate assessment criterion notification is likely to be issued by June 3, when the Supreme Court will hear the next hearing of the petition seeking to annul board examinations. Within the timeframes specified, the government has to inform the court of its final decision.
