Two committees set up by the Assam government to propose procedures to evaluate students of Class 10 and 12 in view of cancellation of this year’s state board examinations due to the COVID-19 have submitted their reports, officials said on Friday.

The panel, which suggested the evaluation formula for Class 12 students, handed over its report to Education Minister Ranoj Pegu during the day, while the committee for Class 10 results had submitted its proposals on Thursday, they said.

Pegu is likely to submit both the reports to Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday, the officials said. Kumar Bhaskar Varma Sanskrit and Ancient Studies  University Vice-Chancellor Prof Dipak Kumar Sharma, who headed the committee for Class 12 results, said members of the panel considered all academic activities, and the suggestions are based on continuous evaluation.

“Result of Class 10 will be taken into consideration. There would be continuous evaluation of Class 11 and 12,” he said after the committee’s meeting here. He did not divulge the details of the evaluation formula.

Sharma said members of the panel have studied the procedures adopted by the CBSE and other state boards for preparing the report and ensured that the interests of the students are protected. 

The committee has also made suggestions for students who may not be satisfied with the results, he said, adding that they can approach the Assam Higher Secondary Council (AHSEC).

On declaration of toppers for this year’s examination, Sharma said it has been left to the state government to decide. The other committee that was formed to recommend a procedure for evaluation of Class 10 students has suggested that the marks of Class 9 and pre-board examinations of the students should be considered, the officials said.
