The Council for Indian School Certificate Examination has asked schools to provide the “average marks” of subjects scored by the 2021 Class XII candidates in Classes XI and XII internal exams held by the schools.
The council has said that it is has initiated a process of “collating and collecting data” from all schools presenting candidates for the ISC 2021 examinations.
CISCE on Thursday sent a circular to the heads of schools with candidates for the ISC examination where it said: “The CISCE is in a process of collating and collecting the data from all our schools presenting candidates for the ISC Year 2021 Examinations. You are, therefore, requested to provide the following information of the candidates registered and confirmed for the ISC Year 2021 Examination…”
The schools will have to upload the marks of both Class IX and X latest by June 7.
The CISCE had deferred the 2021 ISC examinations and had said that it was closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation. After assessing the Covid-19 situation, the final decision on the conduct of the examination would be taken by the first week of June, the CISCE had said.
The circular issued on Thursday does not mention whether the “average marks” of the internal examinations sought by the council would be taken into consideration for preparing results of the 2021 ISC candidates.
In the circular issued by Gerry Arathoon, CISCE chief executive and secretary has asked schools to provide the “average marks” of “papers /subjects” scored by the candidates concerned in the various tests/examinations conducted by the schools at the Classes XI and XII through the academic years 2019-20 and 2020-21 respectively. The marks will have to be provided by the schools in percentage form (that is out of 100).
The subjects in which the marks are to be provided must be the same for which the candidates have been registered and confirmed for appearing in the ISC 2021 examinations, the circular read.
The marks will have to be submitted online through the internal assessment module on the Careers portal of the council.
The internal assessment module will be activated from May 28.
