Most CBSE schools have either formed or are in the process of setting up their results commissions to start the assessment of Class XII candidates and totaling of their final scores, in the absence of their board exams this year. After getting the formula approved by the Supreme Court, the central board has sent schools detailed instructions on how to go about it. Accordingly, 30% weightage will be given to each of Class X board exam scores (best three subjects) and Class XI final exams scores and 40% on Class XII online exams at schools, that might include everything from unit tests, term tests to pre-boards.“We have asked our Class-XII teachers to read the statement. We have formed our results committee that includes two teachers from other schools. When the results are prepared, subject teachers will be consulted as they know every child’s skill level,” said Lakshmipat Singhania Academy director Meena Kak. The school has submitted its CBSE X marks to the board.
Schools felt the computation of CBSE X marks was a dress preparation for this more complex marking Class XII formula,
where a lot of scores under several heads were being considered.
A list of FAQs has been prepared by all schools to be discussed with the city coordinator, with whom the first meeting has been scheduled for Saturday.
“The notification is clear but we will give our questions to the co-ordinator who will then take it to the board for further explanation,” said North Point Senior Secondary Boarding School director Rita Chatterjee. CBSE schools will be divided into clusters that will hold following meetings with the coordinator.
