कक्षा 12 के छात्रों को यह विकल्प भी दिया गया है कि अगर कोई छात्र #CBSE की मूल्यांकन पद्धति से संतुष्ट नहीं है तो उन्हें अपना प्रदर्शन सुधारने के लिए परिस्थितियां अनुकूल होने पर परीक्षा लिखने का भी अवसर मिलेगा । @PMOIndia @HMOIndia@PIB_India @MIB_India @mygovindia @DDNewslive— Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank (@DrRPNishank) June 26, 2020
As per the evaluation scheme submitted by CBSE, students who sat for all their examinations in class 10 and 12 will have their final result declared based on their performance in the exam.
For students who appeared for exam in more than three subjects, the average of the marks obtained in best of three performing subjects will be awarded for subjects for which exam could not be held.
For students who could appear for exam in only three subjects, the average of marks obtained in two best performing subjects will be awarded.
There are some students in class 12 in North-East Delhi who could appear for exam in only one or two subjects. For such students, the result will be prepared on the basis of performance in the appeared subjects and in internal assessment, practical, and project.
The board also added that it will hold examinations for the remaining papers of class 12 later and students will have the choice to appear or skip the exams.
Class 12 students can choose to improve their result by appearing for the exams. However, the marks scored in the optional exams will be treated as final for those who opt to appear in the exam.
