1. CBSE activated the link for schools to upload marks of Class 10 students on or before 11 June 2021

3. Since the Class 10 board exams are now cancelled, the assessment shall be done on the basis of –

- The marks allotted must be in agreement with the past performance of the school in Class 10 examinations
Class 10 Evaluation Plan 2021
According to the alternative assessment scheme released, each student will be assessed out of 100 marks for each subject. CBSE gives 80 marks for year-end board examination and 20 marks for internal assessment/practicals. However, due to the surge in COVID, the final board exams have been cancelled this year and the board has decided to provide 80 marks on the basis of various internal tests/exams conducted by the respective schools during the academic session.
CBSE has asked each school to constitute a result committee including the principal and seven teachers to finalize the results for Class 10. The CBSE stated in a notification dated 01.05.2021 that since the marks will be allocated at the school level, it would not be possible to compare them across schools due to the differences in the quality of question papers, the mode of conduct of exam, the evaluation processes and standards etc. Thus, the school will have to evaluate students’ performance internally by using reliable reference standards to ensure standardization.
Earlier, CBSE cancelled the Class 10 exam following the exponential increase in the COVID-19 cases. As per the schedule now for the Class 10 marks evaluation, the schools have to finalize the rationale document by 10 May and conduct an assessment, if any, by 15 May. The students would be ranked against periodic, haly-yearly, or mid-term exams and pre-boards. CBSE has suggested that the maximum weightage (40 marks) has to be given to pre-boards followed by mid-terms constituting 30 marks and 10 marks to periodic tests. The results for the same will be submitted to the board by 5 June and the internal assessment marks (out of 20) need to be submitted by June 11, so that the overall Class 10 result can be declared by 20 June. .
