The Central Board of Secondary Education has notified the Supreme Court that it would announce class 10 and 12 exam results by mid July. The Board had scheduled the remaining exams for its students from July 1st however, this verdict was challenged at the apex court with respect to the incessant rise in Covid – 19 cases.

After the cancellation of the remaining papers, the Board has now proclaimed that it has been working on an alternative assessment scheme which was presented at the apex court on June 26th and has also been approved by the court.

The alternative assessment covers all possible circumstances for students who sat for all their examinations in class 10 and 12. For students who wrote more than three subjects, the average of the marks obtained in the best of three performing subjects will be awarded. For students who could appear for an exam in only three subjects, the average of marks obtained in two best performing subjects will be awarded.

The Board will also conduct compartment exams, which will be announced later. Students will be given the option to either appear or skip these papers. Marks scored in these papers will be treated as final.

CBSE Board exam result will be available on the board’s official result portal, ‘cbseresults.nic.in‘. Apart from distributing board exam certificates via schools, the board will also release students’ pass certificates and mark sheet through DigiLocker, a flagship initiative of Ministry of Electronics & IT (MeitY) under Digital India

Following a plea filed by the Students Federation of India seeking postponement of board exams, the Tamil Nadu High Court had directed the state government to file its response by June 11th.

The petitioner had asserted that due to the lack of classes it would not be impossible for students to have forgotten their lessons. Also, online classes would also not be possible to reach each and every student. Adding to the above points the petitioner had also said that schools needed time for revisions ahead of examinations and that the exams should not be conducted on the spur of the moment for the sake of conducting it.

However, the Tamil Nadu School Education Minister Mr. K. A. Sengottiyan ruled out any further delay in the exams and confirmed that the exams would be held on June 15th as mentioned earlier. “Now there is no scope for further postponement, and we are making arrangements to teach the hill area students through online”, he said.

The Tamil Nadu 10th Board Examinations which were earlier scheduled from June 1st to June 12th were delayed to the continuation of lockdown till May 31st owing to the Covid – 19 outbreak. The state government then rescheduled the examinations from June 15th to June 25th.

The exams would be held over 12,500 centers as against 3,084 centers in the previous year, and social distancing will be practiced in every center while accommodating the students. The Minister further added that “We are arranging the students to write the examination at their own schools, for which a detailed report will be released soon.”
