The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) recently announced the marking scheme for the evaluation of Class 12th students after the cancellation of Board exams on June 1,2021. The finalized marking scheme involved assessment of students on the basis of their marks in Class 10th, 11th and 12th. The evaluation criteria were accepted by the Supreme Court on June 18, 2021, for Class 12. The result will be declared by CBSE by July 31, 2021.
The CBSE also informed that the students who will not be satisfied with the marks awarded as per the alternative marking scheme will be given a chance to appear for exams at a later point when the situation becomes conducive.
Our Education Minister after hearing the queries about the CBSE marking schemes and other concerns related to these exams, and also the dissatisfaction of students regarding the marking scheme, declared on 26th June,2021 that the students who wish to appear for exams will be able to do so most probably in the month of August by appearing for physical or offline exams.
The exam dates and other details of physical exams (if conducted) will be released by the Board in due course of time.
Also the exams will be held keeping in mind the health security of all students and after proper precautions at the Exam Centre.
Whereas, a final decision on conducting NEET, JEE, and other entrance examinations is still pending.
