Students who will not be satisfied with the result shall be given an opportunity to appear in the (physical) examination once the pandemic situation will be conducive
Central Board of Secondary Education, CBSE, has apprised the Supreme court on Thursday that it will declare the 12th class result by 31st of July, 2021 with its new formula that CBSE and ICSE is adopting. As per the formula of 30:30:40 ratio the result will be prepared on the basis of the marks students have obtained in their 10th, 11th and 12th class respectively.
30 percent of marks will be allotted on the basis of the average marks students have scored in their best three subjects out of five in the class 10th result. Similarly, the next 30 percent weightage shall be allotted on the basis of marks students have scored in the 11th class result and accordingly the remaining 40 percent marks shall be evaluated on the basis of the marks students have scores in the internal examination throughout the year in the 12th class, 2021. The 40 percent marks will be based on the theory and practical marks students have obtained in the internal examinations like unit test, mid-term exams. pre-board exams etc.
CBSE further informed the court that a result committee will be formed by the principals of every school in which two PGT teachers from the same school and two from the neighbouring schools will be appointed to prepare the result according to the policy formulated by the CBSE.
Many students are showing discontent and disappointment over social media websites like twitter over the 30:30:40: percent formula evolved by the CBSE for the first time in the history of India. It is the first time as no such result was ever prepared by CBSE or ICSE in the history of India.
Attorney General of India V K Venugopal has informed the Court that a fair chance will be given to the students to appear in the (physical) examination who will not be satisfied with the result. The court directed the Centre to set a timeline for the declaration of the result and for the examination of the students who will not be satisfied with the result.
A bench of Justice A M Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari told A.G. Venugopal to adopt a proper redressal mechanism to redress the grievances of the students so that no prejudice shall be caused to any student. The bench also rejected the arguments on the petitions praying for seeking rollback of the decision for the cancellation of the examination.
The result is expected to be declared by 31st of July, 2021. The court said that most of the students will be satisfied with the results and those who are not satisfied should be given a proper opportunity to appear in the physical examination once the situation of the pandemic will be conducive.
