This year, the CBSE had cancelled the class X and XII board exams due to the spike in the number of Covid-19 cases.
The board had decided to evaluate class XII students on the basis of marks obtained by them in Class X and Class XI and XII internal exams, unit tests, mid-term or pre-board exams of class XII.
“In case of private students, neither the schools nor CBSE has the desired records, hence their result can not be prepared based on the assessment policy,” the Board has said.
The board had sent a circular to schools asking them to review marks of all the candidates with 95 per cent and above marks and “redo moderation” according to “historical performance and given reference range.”
Schools should “exercise due diligence and ensure that there is no bunching of total marks in the range of 95 and above,” the board reiterated in its notification issued today.
The schools have been asked to “restrict the number of students at each level of overall marks from 95 and above, to ensure that this number is not more than the number of students scoring these overall marks, as per the best historic performance of the last three years.”
