How will the marks be calculated?

Students are now worried about how will the board decide the final percentage of marks — something they will depend upon for college applications and more.

According to CBSE’s affidavit, those students who have completed all their exams will be marked based on their scores in those subjects. This is applicable to both classes 10th and 12th.

However, those students who were waiting to sit for the remaining exams will be assessed based on the performance in the subjects that they have already appeared in. It will be the average marks scored in those subjects.

“For students who have appeared in exams for more than three subjects, the average of the marks obtained in the best three performing subjects will be awarded in the subjects whose examinations have not been conducted,” the CBSE circular said.

Similarly, if the students have appeared for only three subjects, the average marks of the best two subjects will be the marks allotted to the remaining subjects.

For instance, if you scored 90 marks in english, 70 in mathematics and 85 in biology, then the marks awarded to the remaining subjects (whose examinations have not been conducted) will be 87.5 — that is the average of the marks obtained in english and biology.

To improve the performance, the class 12th students can also reappear in the examination once the situation is under control, CBSE added.

“Students will be given the choice to decide if they want their results based on the methodology of assessment as decided by CBSE or choose to write the exams again. I would like to reiterate that the health of students, parents, and teachers is our prime concern, Union Cabinet Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal said in a tweet.
