Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced the Class 12 board exam results after much wait and delay. Results were announced on July 30, 2021, on official portals like cbseresults.nic.in, cbse.nic.in and cbse.gov.in. This year, the central education board was compelled to cancel the Class 12 board exams due to the surge in COVID-19 cases. Instead of offline written exams, students have been evaluated based on their performance in Class 10, 11 and 12 (internal assessments and exams during the year).
Apart from disclosing the alternate evaluation methodology, the board clarified that students who are not satisfied with their results can appear for the re-exam at a later stage. Initially, the timeline for conducting the re-exams was not defined. Recently, however, the education board disclosed the re-examination timeline i.e., August 16 to September 15, 2021. Students can use this opportunity to improve their overall scores or marks in a particular subject.
What we know so far about the CBSE Class 12 Improvement Exams
According to the press release by CBSE, there are four groups of students who shall appear for re-exams in the August-September 2021 period. These four groups are as follows –
#1 Students who are unhappy with their evaluation done based on CBSE’s marking policy
#2 Patrachar, private or second chance compartment students
#3 Students who registered for the 2021 board exams and wish to improve their score in ONLY ONE subject
#4 First chance compartment students
While the timeline is clearly defined, CBSE is yet to release a proper timetable and sequence of exams. This timetable is expected to announce soon, preferable in the first week of August 2021. Students are, therefore, advised to keep track of the official portals to get the re-exam timetable, once announced by CBSE.
Class 12 board exam results 2021 statistics
This year, approximately 99.37% of students have managed to pass Class 12, recording a pass percentage that is nearly 10% higher as compared to last year. Moreover, 5.3% of students have scored more than 95% as per the alternate methodology. In 2020, the pass percentage was recorded to be 88.8%. In 2019, the CBSE Class 12 pass percentage was 83.4 %.
However, as per reports, 65,184 students are yet to receive their board exam results. Their results are expected to come out in the first week of August 2021. Therefore, this year’s pass percentage is likely to increase in the coming week.
According to official information, a total of 6,149 students have been listed under the compartment category. This figure is very minuscule in comparison to 2020 when 87,650 students were listed under the compartment category. These 6000+ students are instructed to further clarification from CBSE about the re-examination facility.
