The portal for moderation and finalization of results for Class-12 is being opened from 16.07.2021 to 22.07.2021. As Board has to declare the result latest by 31.07.2021, schools have been requested to follow the schedule strictly and complete the moderation within schedule. If any school is left to complete the moderation within the stipulated schedule, their result will be declared separately after 31.07.2021. Following are the guidelines issued by CBSE for Moderation of Marks Class 11 and 12 Board Exams.
CBSE has reiterated that the common objective before all is the declaration of results are valid, reliable, and unbiased results of the students in the pandemic situation. Moderating marks of Class 11 & 12 will be a great responsibility, which has to be done in a manner to ensure justice and fairness to students. Any differential application of policy across schools may result in either adverse impact or undue gain for some students. Its the responsibility of the Result Committee towards the entire student population and should not be seen as limited to that of a particular school. Schools are therefore mandated to moderate the marks in such a manner that the results are comparable and no student should suffer because of any unequal application of policy within a school or across schools.
To aid the schools, CBSE has provided marks, including distribution of the marks, based on the best performance of the previous three years which is taken as reference for the purpose of moderation. Schools have been directed to follow the reference distribution while moderating marks. Also, to ensure comparability and fairness at the higher range of marks, schools should exercise due diligence and ensure that there is no bunching of total marks in the range of 95 and above. They will, therefore, have to restrict the number of students at each level of overall marks from 95 and above, to ensure that this number is not more than the number of students scoring these overall marks, as per the best historic performance of the last three years
The broad pattern of distribution of students' total marks (Theory + Practical) of a school (i.e., the composite total of class-10, class-11, and class-12 theory marks) has been provided by the CBSE in the following manner:
Schools will therefore have to, additionally, ensure that after moderation, the number of students with overall marks in the range of 95 and above, this year, is not more than the number of students scoring such overall marks, as per the best historic performance of the last three years.
To further facilitate the schools in moderation of marks, user-friendly software has been developed by CBSE, the guidelines of which will be made available on the portal. This software has two sections - 1. Subject wise moderation and 2. Overall moderation. A complete tabulation sheet will be visible for schools comprising of all components of marks viz. Class 10, Class 11, Class 12 & Practical/Project/IA, and schools should first go through the guidelines and understand before undertaking the exercise of moderation of marks.
