Supreme Court accepts CBSE’s 30:30:40 formula for Class 12

,results before July 31

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thursday ended the suspense  for over 15 lakhs class 12 students over marking for the cancelled board exams  by approving an evaluation formula framed by CBES and CISCE which factors in the class 10 board result , class 11 score and class 12's unit, mid- term and pre-board outcomes.



The central board of secondary education (CBSE) and the council for the Indian school certificate examination (CISCE) gave details of the evaluation policy formulated after consulting experts to a bench of justices A M Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari said class 12 results would be out before July 31. while 14.5 lakh class 12 students appear for the CBSE board, nearly 1 lakh take the exams conducted by CISCE.

Attorney general K K Venugopal, appearing for the Centre, and solicitor general tushar Mehta, appearing for the CBSE , told the court that the academic performance of each student in classes 10 (best three) and 11 as well as the marks or grades obtained in unit and term examinations in class 12 and practical's would be taken in a graded weightage- 30% each for class 10 & 11, and 40% for class 12. 

Keeping in mind the disruptions in Class 12 assessments due to Covid-19, schools have been given leeway in deciding whether to take all assessments (unit tests, mid-terms, pre-boards) or just the pre-boards into account or a combination. This would be done by a "results committee" a combination. This would be done by a "results committee"  in every school.
