The Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) is likely to release the Class 10 results by July 20, 2021. Students can check the latest updates and results at cbse.gov.in. Due to the prevailing Covid-19 situation in the country, the Board has decided to hold back the examinations. Subsequently, the Board has released an alternative evaluation method to evaluate the Class 10 students. As a result, the students will be evaluated on the basis of 80 and 20 marks from the year-end exams and internal assessment respectively.
A petition has been recently filed in the Delhi High Court pleading to seek changes in the Class 10 evaluation policy. The petition read that the whole method of evaluation is unconstitutional. The necessity of moderating marks by aligning them with the overall score of the district and state is unreasonable. It is punitive for the students of that particular school that is going to conduct the board exam for the first time.
However, CBSE stated that no school can take any benefit from this policy. In fact, the school management will have no role to play in the evaluation process. It will be the Result Committee who will take sole the in-charge for the same. The committee will comprise of the Principal and seven faculty members. Among the seven faculty members, five should be from the school itself and they must specialize in Mathematics, Social Science and Science and two languages. The remaining two teachers should be from neighbouring schools who will act as the committee’s external members.
Further, to assist the schools in computing the Class 10 and 12 Board results, CBSE has set up a special help desk. This help desk will entertain only the queries related to the tabulation policy only, and not any general query. The schools can send their query by email and can also call directly at the relevant contact numbers. To register the query for class 10th, mail can be sent to email@example.com and the queries regarding class 12th can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. It is important to mention the school number and naming while sending a query through email.
Schools can also register their enquiries by calling the help desk on following numbers 9311226589, 9311226590, 9311226587, 9311226588. Queries related to the IT department can be registered at 9311226591.
This year, the schools will have to execute the 80 marks assessment based on the marks obtained in different yearly exams and tests. For the Internal Assessment of 20 marks, the policy remains the same based on the Board’s 2019 Circular. For the upcoming Board exams in 2022, CBSE has decided to rationalize the syllabus. The Board decided that the academic session of 2021-22 will be bifurcated into two terms. At the end of each term, the Board will conduct examinations based on the divided syllabus. Importantly, the examinations will be student-centric, based on the core concepts and transparent. Moreover, the Board will make efforts to make the internal assessments and projects more credible.
