CBSE Results 2020 And Alternate Assessment Scheme
This year, students were evaluated as per an alternative assessment scheme, after the pending exams were cancelled in view of the spike in COVID-19 cases. According to the four-pointer scheme, marks have been awarded on the basis of marks scored by a student in his or her best performing subjects. According to the assessment scheme, students were divided into four categories.
The first had students who sat in tests for all their subjects; their results have been declared on the basis of their performance in all the papers.
Students in the second category had appeared for more than three subjects. They have been awarded marks for subjects they did not appear for based on the average of the marks obtained by them in the three best performing subjects.
The board identified a third category of students who appeared in only three subjects. For them, the average of marks obtained in the two best performing subjects has been awarded in the subjects whose examinations were not conducted.
The students in the fourth category were mainly from the February riot-affected Northeast Delhi region where exams had to be postponed. The results of these students have been declared on the basis of their performance in the subjects they took the test for besides their performance in internal or practical project assessment.
The board has decided to give an option to students to take a re-test if they are not satisfied with their results and want to improve them. However, the marks scored in the retest will be treated as final.
