Class 10 Board Result 2021 – CBSE Releases FAQs to Resolve Teacher’s Concerns over New Marking Scheme

New Delhi, 17 May 2021 – CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) has released a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding the latest marking scheme for calculating and tabulating the scores of Class 10 board students. These FAQs were released to clarify the various concerns that teachers and principals of CBSE-affiliated schools had raised after CBSE had released the moderation policy.

CBSE 10th Results 2021 – What Happened Earlier?

On 1st May 2021, CBSE had shared the moderation criteria with its affiliated schools. In that document, they had shared a list of aspects related to the distribution of marks that schools require to abide by while moderating the CBSE Class 10 result 2021.

  1. The policy stated that the schools have to assess the students based on their internal examinations and then mark them out of 80 marks. Later, the teachers have to moderate the marks given to the students as per the reference year.
  2. While schools had accepted the decision of internal assessment, questions have been raised on the rationale for moderation.
  3. Schools had also cited various concerns over decreasing marks of the students that could occur due to the moderation policy. For example, a student may not fare well in the half-yearly exams but could have scored excellent marks during the pre-board exam. Hence, judgment over previous examinations cannot be considered entirely to allot final marks to students.
  4. Besides, the teachers and principals have also showcased their apprehension over the requirement of filling a certain number of students in the range of marks as shared by CBSE under its moderation policy.
  5. Many teachers also raised concerns over choosing a reference year for Maths Basic as the subject has been introduced recently in the year 2020.

Current Resolution from CBSE – New Marking Scheme for Class 10

Since the teachers, as well as the CBSE-affiliated schools, continued raising concerns over the new moderation policy, CBSE finally took the initiative of clarifying the new marking system. CBSE conducted a series of webinars for the teachers and Principals of the affiliated schools and addressed the issues with a Frequently Asked Questions document. 

Here are the factors that were clarified by CBSE:

  • All the CBSE schools can take the reference of the year 2020 for Maths Basic, even if the reference year of 2019 or 2018 has been selected for the school.
  • When it comes to the new marking scheme, the overall marks of the students will be calculated for a total of 100 marks. As per the policy of the board, 20 marks are for internal assessment and 80 marks for year-end board examination.
  • The assessment of 80 marks will be based on the marks scored in a unit test or periodic test, half-yearly exams, and pre-board exams.
  • The overall result should match the result of the reference year, which is selected by the Board.
  • Schools have to upload the marks of internal assessment by 11th June 2021.

The school-based assessment will be aptly marked and given weightage as highlighted below:

  • Periodic Test/ Unit Test: 10 Marks
  • Half Yearly/Mid-Term Examinations: 30 Marks
  • Pre-Board Examinations: 40 Marks
  • Total: 80 Marks
