30:30:40 formula (X, XI & pre-boards) for XII marks? – Times of India

MUMBAI: Students of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class XII are likely to have their results based on their performance in the finals of class X and XI exams and class XII pre-board tests.

Principals told TOI that the CBSE-appointed 13-member committee to recommend the criteria to evaluate Class XII students seems to be in favour of a 30:30:40 formula—30% weightage will be given to class X and XI final results, respectively, and 40% to class XII pre-board exams.

The committee is expected to announce the marking formula after submitting it to the Supreme Court on June 17. Last month, parents had filed a PIL in the SC seeking cancellation of CBSE Class XII exams due to the pandemic.

CBSE was the first to cancel Class XII exams on June 1. Several state boards, including Maharashtra, later cancelled their exams.

Principals have told the committee that they are in a position to mark students based on tests and exams conducted in schools during the academic year 2020-21. CBSE schools in Mumbai were unable to conduct offline exams and practicals through the year as no physical class was held, while those in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) managed to conduct offline tests and practicals when they were permitted to do so by the state from November last year. Schools that could not conduct their practicals have been directed to hold online practical tests and orals. The internal assessment marks of Class XII have to be uploaded on the CBSE system by June 28.

“More weightage should be given to the Class XII periodic tests, pre-board marks and internal assessments,” said a principal, adding that incorporating Class 11 marks will be unfair as students do not take standard XI seriously.

A city college principal said that CBSE can evaluate students from 2018-19 onwards as they continue their education in the same school after Class X. “State students migrate from school to college and marking them for Class X performance will be tedious,” said the principal, indicating that the state should not adopt the formula, if implemented.

Students and parents are anxious about the CBSE assessment formula. “It was better to take an exam and get marks rather than be evaluated for previous years,” said a parent. States are looking at a uniform marking formula for all Class XII students. HSC students in Maharashtra are still awaiting their evaluation formula.
