Central Board of Secondary Education has notified the opening of portal for moderation of marks of class 11, 12 today. Whereas the portal shall be opened today, for schools to carry out marks moderation and submit the same by the deadline. The objective would be to ensure that the class 12 results are comparable.

The moderation of marks will ensure that there is no unduly or unequal policy application across schools and students will get comparable results even though the exams were cancelled this year.
