New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) Saturday released the marks distribution formula for Class 10 students who will be promoted for class 11th without holding the final board examination due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the TOI reported.
According to the release issued by the CBSE, the students will be assessed out of maximum 100 marks for each subject. The internal Assessment for 20 marks will be as per the existing policy while the CBSE came up with an innovative idea for distribution of remaining 80 marks in each subject.
Due to the cancellation of the Board examinations, the assessment of 80 marks will be done by the school
– based on the marks scored by the candidate in the different tests/exams conducted by the school during the year, and
– the marks should be in consonance with the past performance of the school in Class X Board examinations.
The CBSE will consider the following exams for awarding the marks to candidate
|Category of Tests/Exams||Maximum Marks|
|Periodic Test/ Unit Test||10 Marks|
|Half Yearly/ Mid-term Examinations||30 Marks|
|Pre-Board Examinations||40 Marks|
|Internal assessment||20 Marks|
In case schools have conducted more than one test/exam within each category, the result committee may fix the weightage to be given to each test/exam within the category subject to the overall maximum marks for that category.
For example, if a school has conducted two or three pre-board exams it may decide to take an average of the three exams, take the best performance in the three tests or give a weightage to each exam as considered suitable.
