New Delhi: A CBSE constituted panel is yet to submit its recommendations for the criteria to evaluate Class 12 students whose exams have been cancelled in view of the Covid pandemic, according to sources. The 13-member panel, set up by the board for the purpose, was supposed to submit its report by Monday.
However, it is likely to take a few more days for finalising the criteria. The 12-member committee formed by the CBSE includes including Vipin Kumar, joint secretary of Ministry of Education, Department of School Education and Literacy, Nidhi Pandey, commissioner KVS, Udit Prakash Rai from the directorate of Education, two representatives from schools, representatives from NCERT, and UGC.
It had earlier stated that the report for evaluation criteria will be submitted within 10 days. While a final decision is yet to be announced, reports suggest that CBSE is considering announcing the results on the basis of marks obtained by students in the past three years, that is, marks in classes 11, 10, and 9. Apart from that, internal assessments and practical marks will also be calculated.
Class 12 practical exam marks submission date extended: The board extended the last date of submission of class 12 practical marks to June 28, in a circular released on June 8. It also stated that any pending internal exams will be held via online mode and upload marks on the link to be provided by CBSE. It also added that for the conduct of practical exam, where external examiners are appointed by the board, he/she will decide the date of examination in consultation with internal examiners and take Viva Voce through online mode.
In subjects where external examiner has not been appointed, the concerned school teacher of the subject will conduct the internal assessment. The practical exams has to be conducted in the presence of the external examiner, internal examiner and the student and a screenshot has to be taken by the school “as proof of the test being conducted.”
The internal examiner will share the date of examination with students well in advance and on the day of exam, he/she will share the link of online meeting with the external examiner and students. The conduct of assessment will be as per the norms given in the curriculum by the board.
While uploading marks on the link provided by the board, it will be ensured that correct marks are uploaded as no correction in the marks once uploaded will be allowed subsequently. Schools should strictly follow all the Covid-19 protocols while conducting school-based assessments.
