(b) The marks of Practical/Internal Assessment etc. of class-XII will be on actual basis as uploaded by the school on the CBSE portal.
(c) The total marks awarded should be in consonance with the past performance of the school in Class-XII Board Examinations.


2  Accordingly, in accordance with points above, the broad distribution of marks assigned to various components on the basis of which the final marks of every student will be computed is as follows:
 CBSE Class 12 Evaluation Criteria 2021

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.
Each school shall form a Result Committee of 5 members.
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.
