CBSE Class 10 Result Date 2021: How will results be calculated?
CBSE has asked schools to constitute result committees to formulae results. Each result committee will consist of a principal and seven teachers. They will be responsible for “delivering fair and unbiased results to students".
Like every year, this year too students will be given 20 marks based on internals which could be practical or project work etc depending on the subject.
For the remaining 80 marks usually, theory exams are held. Since this year, exams could not take place schools will give marks to students based on different tests and exams conducted by the school during the year. Students would be assessed based on periodic, half-yearly, or mid-term exams and pre-boards. The maximum weightage of 40 marks will be given to pre-boards followed by mid-terms which constitute 30 marks and periodic tests which constitute 10 marks, as suggested by CBSE.
Students will also be given ‘grace marks’ while calculating the results, if they are unable to obtain minimum passing marks. In case even after giving grace marks, a student is not able to meet the qualifying criterion, s/he will be placed in the “Essential Repeat” or “Compartment” category. Further, all the students who will not be happy with the result will be given a chance to appear for the exams at a later stage. The details about these exams are not yet announced.
