Class 12 Board Results 2021 – Updates on Marking Scheme, Expected Result Announcement Schedule

After the cancellation of CBSE Class 12 board examination 2021, the big question now is – how will the Class 12 marking scheme be devised? As per media sources, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is considering two options for evaluating the Class 12 students – 

  • Assessing the students on the basis of their performance in the final exams of Class 10 and 11, and the internal exams of Class 12.


  • The second option in deliberation involves marking the students as per their performance in Class 10 board exam, and internal assessments of Class 12.
