 CBSE Class 12 Evaluation Criteria 2021

COMPUTATION OF THEORY MARKS
 
3 (a) Class XII Theory Marks
The computation of theory marks for class XII will be based on performance in one or more Unit Test(s)/Mid-Term/Pre-Board(s) theory examination. The result committee of the school may decide weightage to be given to each exam based on the credibility and reliability of the assessment. For example, if the committee may be of the considered view that only the Pre-Board exams may be taken into consideration, then a full weightage can be given to that component. Similarly, another school Result committee may decide to give equal weightage to Pre-Board exams and Mid-Term exams.
 
(b) Class XI Theory Marks
Computation of class XI theory marks shall be on the basis of year end final theory exam in respective subjects.
 
(c) Class X Theory Marks
Computation of class X theory marks shall be based on average theory marks obtained by the student(s) in best three performing subjects out of main 5 subjects.
This average will be uniformly awarded to all the class XII subjects based on theory weightage.
To facilitate ease in entering the theory marks of class X, the Board will provide the marks for the students who have appeared in CBSE class X examinations. For students of other Boards, the schools will have to enter the information based on the class X mark sheets of the students available with schools.
 
4. CONSTITUTION OF RESULT COMMITTEE
Each school shall form a Result Committee of 5 members.
 
5. ASSESSMENT MODERATION OF CLASS XI AND CLASS XII COMPONENT
As marks of class XI and class XII component will be awarded at school level, they will strictly not be comparable across schools due to the variations in the quality of question papers, the evaluation standard and processes, the mode of conduct of exams etc.
 
Therefore, to ensure standardisation, each school will have to internally moderate the marks to account for the school level variations by using a reliable reference standard.
 
(a) The historical performance of the school, in terms of the best overall performance in the previous three years’ Board examination, will be taken as the reference for moderating the marks assessed by the school for 2020-2021.
(b) The subject wise marks assessed by the school for 2020-2021 should be within a range of +/- 5 marks obtained by the students in the school in the subject in the reference year. However, the overall average marks for the school assessed in 2020-2021, for all the subjects, should not exceed the overall average marks obtained by the school by 2 marks in the specific reference year.
(c) Once the Result Committee finalizes the marks on the basis of tests/exams, it has to ensure that the marks of students are aligned with the broad distribution of marks provided by the Board. It may be noted that the indicated distribution has to be followed broadly and there may be some difference in terms of number of actual students in each category of the distribution than the one indicated. However, the school subject wise and overall scores should be within the limits provided.
 
6 Declaration of Results
CBSE will declare the results as per rule 59 of the Examination Bye-Laws of the Board.
 
7  Boards Policy for Qualifying Class-XII Examination
In case, any student is not able to meet the qualifying criterion, he/she will be placed in “Essential Repeat” or “Compartment” Category.
 
8  Students not satisfied with the Assessment
Students who are not satisfied with the assessment, done based on the policy will be given an opportunity to appear in examinations to be conducted by the board when conditions are conducive for holding the examinations. As per this policy, marks scored in later examination will be considered as final.
 
9 Policy for Private/Patrachar/2nd chance Compartment etc.
For Private, Patrachar and 2nd chance Compartment candidates etc. Examination will be conducted by the Board as and when the conditions become conducive for conduct of such examinations. The details will be notified in due course.
