All Class X students were auto-promoted to Grade XI following the cancellation of board exams — scheduled from May 4 to June — by CBSE and ICSE.
On May 1, the CBSE released the assessment criteria for Class 10 board exams. Students will be evaluated on the basis of marks obtained in the tests and exams held during the academic year. They will be assessed out of a maximum of 100 marks for each subject. While 20 marks have to be submitted by the schools as internal assessment, the remaining 80 marks will be based on scores in periodic tests, half yearly or mid-term exams and pre-board examinations, the board said.
For students who have not appeared in any of the assessments conducted by the school, the school may conduct an offline, online or telephonic one-to-one assessment and record documentary evidence of it.
CBSE will also provide grace marks while computing the result if students do not obtain the minimum marks to qualify the exams.
“In case after application of grace marks policy by the Board, any student is not able to meet the qualifying criterion, he/she will be placed in “Essential Repeat” or “Compartment” category,” it added.
The Class 10 board examination result for 2021 is scheduled to be released on June 20.
