Most students reacted unfavourably to CBSE’s Class 12 marking scheme that was announced on 17 June.
After multiple rounds of postponing and canceling the board examinations, CBSE said that the basis of the 12th final result will be made on the basis of the 10th, 11th, and 12th pre-board results. The board will make arrangements for those students who want to appear in the exams later.
The marking scheme would include:
- Best marks of 3 subjects out of 5 subjects of 10th will be considered.
- Average of 5 subjects in class 11th exams.
- Marks of Pre-board and practical exams in class 12th
- The results will be based on 30% of 10th marks, 30% of 11th marks, and 40% of 12th marks.
Aditya Sehgal, a class 12 student said, “The scheme is totally unfair because the whole year we studied for the class 12th examination. And now we are also getting evaluated on the basis of class 10th and 11th result.”
“The new marking scheme will be a total disaster for us. In class 11, we build our profile by doing a lot of competitions and joining clubs,” said Pranav Verma, another class 12 student unhappy with the board’s decision.
