West Bengal Announces Class 10, 12 Evaluation Criteria
The students of Class 10 and Class 12 West Bengal boards will be evaluated on the basis of internal assessment marks scored during the academic year and annual exam marks obtained in the previous class.
The Class 10 and Class 12 school boards in West Bengal have announced the evaluation criteria to declare the results of the cancelled exams of 2021. "It's a student friendly system," said Mahua Das, president of the WB Council for Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) in charge of the Uchcha Madhyamik or Class 12 boards. The Madhyamik or Class 10 exams are conducted by The West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE).

For Class 10, the board has decided to adopt a 50:50 formula to arrive at results. While 50 per cent marks will be awarded on the basis of marks obtained in Class 9 annual examination, the remaining 50 per cent will be derived from Class 10 internal assessment marks scored during the academic year.
For evaluating the Class 12 students, the board will follow a 40:60 formula. 40 per cent weightage to the best of four subjects in Class 10 Madhyamik exam in 2019 and 60 per cent weightage to the annual Class 11 theory exam held in 2020 plus Class 12 practicals or projects, for Science and Arts respectively.
In Class 11-12, Science students take exams for 70 marks in theory papers and 30 for practicals. For Humanities, the break up is 80 marks for theory and 20 for projects.
If students are dissatisfied with marks awarded on this evaluation basis, they may take the exam whenever the government thinks fit to hold them. If they take the exam, marks obtained in it will be final.
The West Bengal Council for Higher Secondary Education has asked schools to submit the Class 10 Madhyamik scores by June 23.
Results will be declared by July 31.
