New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Thursday confirmed that results for Class 10 board examinations will be declared by July 20. The examinations were cancelled on April 15 this year in view of the second wave of coronavirus infections.
"Our efforts are that Class 10 CBSE results will be declared by July 20 and Class 12 results will be declared by July 31, so that students who want to go for study in a foreign country do not suffer," Bhardwaj said.
CBSE has already announced the assessment scheme for class 10 students. The authority will include 40 per cent marks from pre-board examinations, 30 per cent marks from half-yearly or mid-term examinations, 20 per cent from internal assessment carried out by schools and 10 per cent from periodic or unit tests.
Students unsatisfied with their results could appear for physical examination. The online registration for these examinations will be opened shortly to ascertain the number of examinees.
Earlier today, the Supreme Court approved the CBSE and CISCE assessment schemes of a 30:30:40 formula for evaluation of marks for class 12 students based on their classes 10, 11 and 12 results, respectively. Several experts deemed this formula unfair, sparking outrage on social media platforms.
