The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has implemented few changes that may affect your CBSE Class 10 and CBSE Class 12 results, according to report.
The 2017 CBSE exams were delayed by more than 10 days because of the assembly elections in five states in February and March. After the delay, the CBSE Class 10 and Class 12 exams concluded on April 29, 2017.
Here understanding the changes implemented by the CBSE and their impact on your results.
CBSE and 31 other state and national boards have decided to go against the policy of moderation and this may leave students and parents unhappy. Moderation is a policy under which boards go lenient in their checking and give extra marks to students.
The marks are granted across the board to tally with the grace marks in order to employ standardisation. However, standardisation will be implemented this year. This year, the CBSE Board Examinations would expectedly have lower percentages as boards have decides to go against moderation.
In a bid to curb the extra-ordinarily high cut-offs at the degree courses, the decision against moderation has been taken by the boards. According to sources, concerns have been raised over the increasing cut-offs at various universities in India.
The CBSE had requested the HRD Ministry to urge state boards to scrap the policy of moderation. The moderation policy has been revoked from this year and would not be considered while marking answer keys this time around.
Sources say that there is no direct intimation regarding the grace marks that the board might award to the students. As a matter of fact, CBSE Boards adopt a lenient policy for students lagging behind a few marks to achieve the requisite pass percentage of 33 percent in the examination.
The answer sheets would begin getting evaluated from May 1. A formal notification regarding the marking schemes and how the marks would be allotted have not been received by teachers and coordinators yet. Hence, students are requested not to panic.
According to sources, the decision to discontinue moderation would only adversely affect the extremely high percentages received by students. Students in Delhi were getting scores of 100 per cent in various examinations.
It is expected that after discontinuing moderation, only the truly deserving candidates would score very high percentage.
However, overall, it is expected that a considerable dip in the percentage of marks scored by Class 10 and Class 12 exams can be witnessed this time. The Class 10 Board examinations are making a comeback from this year.
