The Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) has announced the evaluation criteria for class 12 students and SEBA has released the marking scheme for Class 10. The council had set up a meeting on Thursday. Students will be evaluated based on their performance in class 10, 11 and 12.
For students of class 12 who also had practical exams, 50 per cent of the total marks would be provided based on the best of three subjects of class 10, 30 per cent from class 12 practicals, 10 per cent based on internal assessment and attendance in class 11, and class 12. The remaining 10 per cent will be calculated based on the overall marks.
Class 12 students of Arts and Commerce, who do not have practicals), will get 50 per cent of their marks from the best of three subjects in class 10, 40% based on internal assessment in class 11 and class 12, and an additional 10% to be marked by AHSEC.
Students of class 10 will be awarded 40% of their marks based on their performance in class 9, 40% based on their performance in class 10 and 20 per cent from school-based internal assessments. Those who will be dissatisfied with the awarded marks will be able to appear for exams by September 15. The state board will not announce any merit lists this year.
On June 18, the Assam government had cancelled both class 10 and class 12 board examinations this year in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. The decision was taken after receiving a lot of pressure to scrap the board examinations in order to keep students and teachers safe from getting infected. The Education Minister of Assam Ranoj Pegu said, “We have decided to cancel the exam keeping the Covid situation in mind”.
Both exams, for classes 10 and 12 were initially scheduled for May 11, after which the government postponed them. While on June 8, the government had said that the exams will be held in the first two weeks of August, students demanded cancellation of the exams. Nearly 2.5 lakh students of class 12 were to appear for the exams this year.
The CBSE Class 12 board exams were canceled by the central government in the wake of the second wave of Covid-19. The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) will also follow the same pattern to evaluate the students of class 12.
As The Indian Express first reported, the class 12 result will be based on the class 10 component (30 per cent) based on the best three performing subjects in the board exams, class 11 component (30 per cent) will be based on the final exam and class 12 component (40 per cent) based on unit test/mid-term/pre-board. The CBSE class 12 results will be released by July 31.
