Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has activated the e-Pareekha link on the official website for uploading of Class 10 student’s marks. As per previous reports, owing to the pandemic situation in India, CBSE has cancelled the Class 10 board exams this year and adopted an objective criterion on 15 point format for the evaluation of merit of Class 10 students. Now, affiliated schools have to upload the marks secured by candidates on the e-pareeksha portal available through cbse.gov.in.
CBSE released the Policy For Tabulation of Marks of Class X Board Exams 2021 recently on the official website. As per the new policy, the CBSE affiliated schools are required to upload marks of Internal Assessments of Class 10 students on the portal by June 11, 2021. The internals have been conducted in schools are per normal convention. Now, since the Boards are cancelled, the remaining 80 marks are to be awarded on the basis of objective criterion, consisting of tests/exams conducted by schools for Class 10 students. CBSE has indicated that marks uploaded are in consonance with the past performance of the schools in Board exams.
Schools have reportedly uploaded Internal Assessment marks to the CBSE website and those who are yet to do so have been recommended to upload the marks by the last date. As per the policy regulations, each subject of CBSE class 10 boards carry 100 marks. Among these 20 marks are attributed to Internal Assessments conducted by schools internally. The rest of the 80 marks are attributed to the Class X board exams for each subject. However, since the exam has been cancelled, CBSE has decided to award the remaining 80 marks on the basis of tests/exams taken by schools in the current year.
As per policy guidelines released by the CBSE, periodic tests/unit tests will carry 10 marks weightage, half-yearly/mid-term exams will carry 30 mark weightage and pre-board exams will carry 40 marks weightage to make up for the 80 marks board exams cancelled by CBSE. Candidates will be evaluated on the basis of this marking criterion.
It is being reported that the Delhi Government has requested for more time to compile the result/uploading of marks as teachers are engaged in COVID-19 duties and schools are being used as centres for COVID-19 treatment and control. Concerned CBSE schools are advised to visit the official website cbse.gov.in and complete uploading of marks of Class 10 students before the last date. One must read the policy tabulation carefully for instructions regarding uploading of marks on the e-pareeksha portal on the CBSE website.
