The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is providing much-needed flexibility to Class X and XII students in order to increase their performance in board examinations in 2021
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has agreed to give class 10 and 12 students a second chance to increase their grades in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The CBSE is giving examinees the much-needed flexibility to improve their performance in board examinations for the first time. Previously, candidates who wanted to increase their grades had to retake the exam with a new batch. The decision was made under the National Education Policy (NEP), which was approved by India’s Union Cabinet on July 29, 2020.
In the Compartment Exams, which will be held immediately after the primary examination, students in classes X and XII will have the opportunity to increase their performance in only one subject. For the purpose of declaring results, the better of the two marks obtained in the subject will be considered. Candidates who increase their grades will be given a consolidated grade sheet. Furthermore, for class X and XII examinations, the board is allowing candidates to change their examination centre/city. “It has come to the board’s attention that, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, students in classes 10, 12, and their families have relocated to another city or country and are thus unable to appear in the practical/ theory exam from the school/ exam centre where the students are registered for the board exams,” the official notification read. Candidates must notify the school where they intend to sit for the upcoming board exams. They have until March 25 to change their exam locations.
The CBSE Class X and XII board examinations will be held between May 4 and June 8, 2021. By July 15, the results would be available. The CBSE, on the other hand, has yet to issue the students’ admit cards. CBSE has determined that students should be given different opportunities to increase their performance in board examinations as part of the National Education Policy (NEP). CBSE class 10, class 12 students will now be given the following opportunities by the board, in accordance with the recommendations made in the NEP: Students in Classes 10 and 12 will have the chance to increase their performance in only one subject during the Compartment Examination, which will take place immediately after the main examination. For the purpose of declaring results, the better of the two marks acquired in the subject will be used. Candidates who increase their grades will receive a consolidated grade sheet.
