CBSE Class 12 Evaluation Criteria 2021 – 30:30:40 Formula Expected to be Implemented

As per the recent media reports, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is expected to evaluate the performance of Class 12 students on the basis of their marks in Class 10 and 11 final exams and Class 12 pre-board tests. Media reports suggest that the 13-member committee (set by CBSE to decide upon a full proof evaluation criterion for Class 12) largely agree upon the formula of 30:30:40 to determine the Class 12 results 2021 wherein – 

  • 30% weightage would be given to marks in Class 10 final examination,
  • 30% weightage would be given to marks in Class 11 final examination, and
  • 40% weightage would be given to marks in Class 12 pre-boards

CBSE Class 12 Evaluation Criteria 2021 – Decision To Be Out Soon

The committee appointed by CBSE is likely to announce the Class 12 evaluation criteria after submitting a report on the same to the Supreme Court on 17 June 2021. 

Earlier, the committee was expected to announce their decision on the final evaluation criteria for assessing the Class 12 students on 14 June 2021. However, after a few panel members of the committee lost their family members to COVID-19, the final announcement was postponed.

CBSE Class 12 Evaluation Criteria 2021 – What Happened Earlier?

  • On 3rd June 2021, CBSE Board Secretary Anurag Tripathi stated that the authorities would take all necessary steps and ensure that the Class 12 board results are declared on time. He also added that the CBSE may take around two weeks to decide and finalize CBSE Class 12 marks evaluation criteria.
  • The very next day, CBSE constituted a committee to develop the CBSE Class 12 evaluation criteria and released a notice regarding the same on 4th June 2021.
  • Then, CBSE announced that they have set up a committee of 13 members including Vipin Kumar – Joint Secretary of Ministry of Education, Department of School Education and Literacy, Nidhi Pandey – Commissioner KVS, Udit Prakash Rai from the Directorate of Education, two representatives from schools, representatives from NCERT, and UGC.
  • If the CBSE-appointed committee finally decides and declares that the 30:30:40 formula would be implemented for Class 12 evaluation criteria 2021, it would be slightly contrary to Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s recent proposal to Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal. On Friday, 11th June 2021, Sisodia had written to the Union Education Minister seeking the following formula to be taken into consideration:
    • 20 marks each for Class 11 and 10 exams (40 marks in total)
    • 30 marks weightage for pre-board exam
    • The remaining 30 marks can be allocated for practical exams

As the final decision is about to be announced any day now, students must keep an eye on the official CBSE website to get the latest updates on the much-anticipated Class 12 evaluation criteria 2021.
