After receiving inputs from experts and deliberations on giving marks to Class XII students of Central Board of Secondary Education, the expert panel appears to be in favour of using a combination of scores from Class X and XI, and internal assessment and pre-board result of Class XII, those familiar with developments say.

Apparently, ‘viva voce’ may also play a role in calculating the results of the exams, which have been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

The CBSE appears to be also considering giving grades to students instead of marks. The sources say the panel consulted principals of several schools to devise a fair criterion for alternate assessment. One of the suggestions was that students should be awarded grades on basis of marks from earlier exams. “Since the results will have to be calculated on the basis of a student’s past performance, awarding marks may not be a fair procedure,” the sources said.

In other words, the CBSE may award grades like A1, A, B1, B, C1, C, D, and E. However, one will have to wait for the final decision, which the CBSE is expected to announce this week. 

“The expert committee set up by the CBSE has discussed giving grades as an option. The broad consensus is to factor in marks scored in Class X boards, Class XI school exams, and Class 12 pre-boards. Though the time is running out ‘viva voce’ is also an option for giving weightage to each component.

“The final decision will be communicated to students soon. They will be able to check the updated criteria on the official website,” sources said.
