CBSE to announce CBSE, CISCE Board 10th, and 12th standard results on the basis of new marking scheme by July 15, 2020
Its that time of the year when the young ones who passed out of the 10th and 12th boards are eager to go to their college and start a new life. But this year things are different due to the coronavirus pandemic. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all schedules by all boards including the Central Board of Secondary Education or CBSE have been erratic.
We had already reported that CBSE has decided not to conduct the pending Board exams of class 10 and 12 scheduled from July 1. Now the CBSE has said that it will announce the results of both these classes based on the new marking scheme. Students who had appeared in the exams can expect their results by July 15, as mentioned in the board’s notification. However, CISCE has not decided whether they will announce the result in mid-July. They also plan to come up with their own marking scheme.
What is new marking scheme?
The new marking scheme will be used in the case of students who have appeared for more than three subjects, the ‘average of marks obtained in the best three performing subjects’ will be awarded for subjects for which the exam was not held, as per the board.
In plain English, For students who have appeared in exams in only three subjects, the average of marks obtained in ‘best two performing subjects’ will be awarded for papers for which exam was not held.
What happens to the students who did not appear for any papers or don’t want the new marking scheme?
Those students who did not appear for a single paper or don’t want the new marking scheme can opt for appearing for exams when they are held. HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal today in his tweet mentioned, “Students will be given the choice to decide if they want their results based on the methodology of assessment as decided by #CBSE or choose to write the exams again. I would like to reiterate that the health of students, parents, and teachers is our prime concern.”

Meanwhile, students opting to improve their performance in the board exams which will be held at a later date will be considered final. It is now up to the students and the parents to decide on their future course of action.
In separate news, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has postponed the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) Exam which was to be held on July 5th, 2020. Over 30 lakh candidates were to appear for the teacher eligibility exam that was scheduled to be held on July 5.
