The Board had informed the Higher Secondary Schools under its jurisdiction that the Class 12 assessment will be made as per well-defined objective criterion in a time-bound manner.
Candidates will have an option to appear in the examination as and when the situation becomes conducive to hold the examination for those candidates who are not satisfied with the assessment through objective criterion.
The Board has directed schools to form a result committee consisting of principal and a minimum of four senior-most teachers (preferably one from each stream Arts, Commerce, Science and Vocational, wherever is applicable) of the school teaching Class 12.
One teacher from neighbouring Higher Secondary School teaching Class 12 has to be co-opted by the school as the external member of the committee.
