The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has postponed the declaration of Class 10th results 2021 as schools allowed to submit student’s marks to the boards by June 30. As a result of this, the CBSE class 10th result 2021 will not be announced in the month of June but at a later date. Earlier, the Board had asked the schools to submit the internal assessment marks by June 11 and June 5 was the last date to submit marks (out of 80). However, now the entire process of evaluation and results has been stretched by 20 days.
Sanyam Bhardwaj, controller of examination, CBSE in an interview with IndianExpress said that “Delhi government had written to the CBSE to extend the deadline to submit marks and we had provided them with the required flexibility. But, we are noticing constant disturbance across the country due to COVID-19 and it is only logical to extend the deadline and not risk stakeholders’ lives.”
He further added that since the guidelines for class 11 admissions has already been released, schools are free to start online classes for the students. There will be a slight delay in the publication of the class 10th result but this will not impact the students’ academic cycle.
The board has released an official notification for the same on Tuesday at its official website, cbse.gov.in. This year around 18 lakh students are going to be subject to this system of assessment.
Here’s the latest official notification:
As per the assessment criteria released by the board, the basic break-up of class 10th marks is as follows – 20 marks for internal assessment, which has already been conducted by most schools with marks already uploaded, 10 marks for periodic/unit test, 30 marks for half-yearly/mid-term examinations, and lastly 40 marks for pre-board examinations.
The moderation criteria as released by the board highlights the distribution of marks that schools have to adhere to and moderate the CBSE 10th results 2021. If any candidate is not satisfied with the marks obtained will also get the opportunity to appear in the exams when the COVID-19 situation improves.
