The CBSE results for Class 10 students are being prepared on the basis of an alternative means of assessment, as the examinations could not be conducted due to the pandemic. Therefore, the board decided to evaluate Class 10 students by awarding 20 marks to internal assessment and 80 marks to various internal tests or exams held throughout the year. The breakdown of the 80 marks included: 10 marks for periodic/ unit test, 30 for half yearly/ mid-term examinations, and 40 marks for pre-board exams.
Last year, the Board saw around 18.89 lakh students appearing for Class 10 examinations. The Board could not, however, conduct examinations for all subjects due to the pandemic. The results, thus, for the exams not conducted, have been prepared on the basis of the average of the three highest scores obtained by the student on the exams that were successfully conducted.
The Board this year also could not conduct Class 12 examinations due to the pandemic.
