10th, 12th classes to resume in MP from Dec 18

New Delhi, June 17 (IANS) Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has thanked the Supreme Court for endorsing the policy and procedure of the CBSE to prepare the results of class 12 students. Nishank said that this policy has been adopted by the CBSE after extensive consultation with all the stakeholders, which is in the interest of the students. While calculating the final result, 30 per cent marks based on best-of-three class 10 marks, 30 per cent marks for class 11 and 40 per cent marks for class 12 will be given. For practicals, students will be evaluated on the basis of the marks submitted by the schools. Nishank said that the students who are not satisfied with their result under this process will be given an opportunity to appear in the examination to be conducted by the CBSE if the conditions are favourable. "Our government is committed to the interests and bright future of all the stakeholders in every situation," he said. Several reputed educational institutions and educationists across the country have welcomed the formula worked out by the CBSE. Neena Kaul, Director and Principal, Heritage Experiential Learning School, said, "the new benchmark of assessment is flexible and clear. Schools have been given the facility to ensure a clear process of evaluation of students. However there is a vast difference in the subject, structure and scholastic approach of class 10 and class 11 and 12. The average marks of class 10 will have an impact on the marks of class 12 as well. The subjects of both the classes are different. Heritage Experiential already has a robust evaluation methodology, so it will not be difficult for us to implement the board's standards." CBSE 10th board result will be declared by July 20 and class 12 result will be out by July 31. The CBSE shared this information with the Supreme Court on Thursday while giving details about the formula to prepare the result. The central government had cancelled the CBSE Class 12 board exams on June 1 amid the surging Covid cases across the country.
