The Supreme Court has accepted the scheme formulated by CBSE and ICSE for evaluation of Class 12 result.
While hearing a peal filed by Advocate Mamata seeking cancellation of the Class 12 CBSE and ICSE written exams, a Bench of Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice Dinesh Maheshwari was informed that the Class 12 students marks will be based on Class 11 and Class 10 results.
Class 12 result scheme
- Class 10 component (30%) based on best 3 performing subjects in Board exams
- Class 11 component (30%) will be based on final exam
- Class 12 component (40%) based on unit test/mid-term/Pre-board
Total marks will be based on the school past performance in 12th exams, it said. About 40% of the marks will be based on 12th pre-board and 60% weightage will be given to the performance of the students in Class 11 and Class 10 final exams. The bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari was hearing the case today.
While 30 per cent marks will be based on Class 11 final exam, 30 per cent marks based on best-of-three Class 10 marks, the board said. Practicals will be for a total of 100 marks and the students will be evaluated on the basis of the marks submitted by the schools.
“If a student is unable to meet the qualifying criteria – now spread across three years of study – they will be placed in the “essential repeat” or “compartment” category. The students who are not satisfied can appear again when the CBSE conducted the Class 12 board exams,” Attorney General KK Venugopal told SC.
