In view of the rising COVID-19 cases in the country, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a notification dated 01.05.2021 regarding the ‘Policy for Tabulation of Marks for Class 10 Board Exams 2021 Based on the Internal Assessments Conducted by Schools.” The objective of the policy, as laid down by the board is – ‘developing an unbiased and transparent academic record based on realistic evaluation of academic performance of students.’
|Category of Tests/Exams||Maximum Marks|
|Periodic Test/Unit Test||10|
|Half Yearly/Mid-Term Examinations||30|
If any of the schools have conducted more than one test or exam in any of the above-mentioned categories, the Result Committee may fix the weightage to be given to each test or exam within the category subject to the overall maximum marks for that category.
For example – If a school has conducted three pre-board examinations, it may decide to –
Since the marks are to be allocated at school level, it would not be possible to compare them across schools due to the variations in the quality of question papers, the evaluation standard and processes, the mode of conduct of exams etc. Hence, to ensure standardisation, the board has directed each and every school to internally moderate the marks to account for the school level variations by using a reliable reference standard.
