Due to COVID19 pandemic the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) cancelled the remaining exams as the outbreak is getting worse in India. CBSE had told the Supreme Court on June 26 that it will declare the board examination results by July 15. But there are several questions of students that are still unanswered.
What happens if a student contracted coronavirus and missed multiple papers?
What if a student fell sick and missed the examinations?
What if a Delhi student was absent during the internal assessment and pre-boards?
According to Money Control, under the assessment scheme, students who have appeared for exams in more than three subjects, the average performance in three best performing subjects will be awarded for the remaining subjects where exams could not be conducted.
For example, if a student has already given examinations for History, Political Science, Economics and English subjects and Hindi, Geography are pending, marking for the last two subjects will be an average of the highest three marks scored.
For those who have appeared for less than three subjects, the average performance in two best performing subjects will be awarded for the remaining subjects where exams could not be conducted.
The assessment scheme also said that for students from Delhi who have only appeared for exams in one to two subjects, results will be declared based on the performance in these subjects and internal assessment and practical tests.
Meanwhile, a CBSE official told this student that the assessment scheme won’t be applicable to students missing any paper.
Pune-based Neha Pant said that she has been topping her school examinations for the past five years and wanted the ‘winning streak’ to continue in the CBSE Class XII boards. With average marking being used, she is worried that the overall scores will be impacted since even a percentage lower could impact her chances at getting into a good university.
In institutions like Delhi University, even a 0.5 percent lower percentage would mean that students like her would not be able to get in.
For instance, the first cut-off in 2019 for Lady Shri Ram College for a BA (Political Science and Psychology) programme was 97 percent for the general category.
With just a few days remaining for the results to be declared, it is essential that CBSE clarifies all these issues. Leaving it to the last minute or letting schools decide could make it worse for students. And considering the Coronavirus spread, holding compartment exams would also not be feasible right now.
