Central Government cancels CBSE Class 12 Board Exams 2021 and decides this marking scheme for class 12 CBSE 202021 to Prepare the Result
The Central Government had canceled the CBSE Class 12 Board Exams, on 31st May 2021 and decides this marking scheme for class 12 CBSE 202021 to Prepare the Result. Now it’s the students are concerned about how the board is going to allot marks? According to our sources, the result will be based on welldefined criteria and CBSE launch a new marking scheme for class 12 CBSE 202021 after 15 June 2021. There is mainly one proposal on which the government is planning to base marks.
The Government is planning to consider the results of Class 10 final exam marks, Class 11 final exam marks, and Class 12 internal assessment marks for the final evaluation.
If any candidate is not satisfied with the marks given by CBSE after evaluating based upon the given order of evaluation, then CBSE will be giving the student another chance to appear in the Board Exams once the Covid19 situation of the country subsides.
CBSE will be informing the schools of each of the students of the marks they have awarded. Students will be able to collect the final mark sheet from respective schools once CBSE releases official notification.
CBSE will also be providing an online facility to the schools where the school authorities can check the marks distribution for each student. And if the school finds any mismatch during the checking, then they may inform the CBSE. And CBSE will be taking the required actions to change the allocated marks.
If any candidate has not appeared in the final internal assessment for Class 12, then for such students schools will be allowed to take oneonone telephonic viva/exam which will be recorded with digital evidence to be submitted to CBSE. CBSE will be taking the final decision for such students based on the evidence it receives.
For Example, A student who has secured 25 marks out of 30 marks would be converted:
Out of 50: = 25 * 50 = 1250/30 = 41.66
Out of 70: = 25 * 70 = 1750/30 = 58.33
Out of 80: = 25 * 80 = 2000/30 = 66.67
These are some criteria that are speculated to be adopted by CBSE for final result calculation.

documented in the Rationale Document. 
8.  If any candidate does not appear in any assessment how schools will do the assessment of the student?  If any candidate has not appeared in any of the assessments conducted by the school, the school may conduct an offline/online or a telephonic onetoone assessment and record documentary evidence to certify the recommendations.

school out of maximum marks of each subject. 
9.  What the schools need to do in case the parents want to view the exam copies or want to verify the marks after the board result declaration.  No such facility is available for the current year. Please read the policy carefully and inform the parents. 
RESULT CALCULATION  
40  What to do in case the maximum marks for yearend theory exams are 30/50/70 and not 80 or 100?  The marks may be proportionately calculated/reduced and awarded. Maximum Theory Marks may be crosschecked before calculation. For example:
A student has secured 25 marks out of 30 marks in the yearend theory examination. These marks would be converted: (a) Out of 50 =25×50=1250/30=41.66~42 (b) Out of 70 =25×70=1750/30=58.33~53 (c) Out of 80 = 25X80=2000/30=66.66~67 
41  In the case of students with special needs (Learning / Physical disability), one or two of their subjects like Mathematics and Science/ Social Science have been replaced with easier subjects like Painting and Home Science / Computer Application.
OR
Do we have to take out weightage of the marks in these subjects for students with special needs also as being done in the case if these subjects have been taken as 6th additional subject? 
In such cases, the resulting committee may standardize the marks of CWSN candidates based on their performance vizaviz the performance of other candidates in the class. 
42  In a school, there are 78 students who have seven subjects. IT as the 6^{th} subject and Hindi as the 7^{th} Subject. Will the marks of additional Hindi be
calculated same as IT? 
As per policy, mean of the best 3 awarded marks be given in 6^{th} and 7^{th} subject irrespective of Hindi, IT, or any other subject. 
43 
Say reference year is 201819 when there was no bifurcation of standard and basic Maths. During moderation how can we give benefit to the students who have opted for basic Maths? 
As Basic Mathematics data is only available for 20192020 as the subject was introduced for the first time in 2020. Therefore, 20192020 will be taken as the base year for Basic Mathematics.
Based on the average marks of Mathematics Basic, marks of Mathematics Basic for 2020 2021 will be calculated as per the Mathematics Basic result of 2019 – 2020 irrespective of the Reference Year. 
44 
We haven’t received the French mean marks of the reference year 20182019. How to calculate the marks in 2021? 
Any language/subject other than the main 5 subjects (2 languages, Mathematics(Basic/Standard), Science and Social Studies), whose performance has been shown in the reference table, the marks may be calculated making an average of best three
subjects marks. 
45  Sanskrit is a Sixth subject in the school. So, do we need to calculate the MEAN for the Sanskrit subject or Should we use schoolbased assessment already done?  You have to award the mean of the best 3 marks awarded in the first 5 subjects in Sanskrit. 
46  There are the following queries:
(a) if any of the students now are not in town or not reachable over the phone how the marks will be awarded to him or her. (b) If a school is unable to reach a parent who was absent in pre boards due to this pandemic how will the school give marks to that particular student? (c) Can a school mark be absent for that student? 
(a) Mark Absent
(b) Mark Absent
Yes. If a student is not traceable, the student is marked as absent. 
47  How to calculate the marks of a subject whose maximum marks are 50. However, CBSE has provided average marks of the subjects having maximum marks of 80.  Say a student has secured 56 marks out of 80. Now we have to calculate the marks of a subject having maximum marks as 50.
So Marks would be= 56X50=2800/80=35 
48  (a). My School has a 6th subject, Information Technology. How do I assign marks/grades for the same as the total is 50 marks?
(b). Can I assign 4 teachers, a team of two as externals to two different schools? (c)Can an IT teacher be included as a member in the team of internal examiners as we have Information Technology? (d). In the referral year, we didn’t have Basic Mathematics. Many students in the current year have opted for basic mathematics and have scored good marks. The referral year policy will not be effective here. Kindly suggest a fair evaluation. 
(a). Say a student has secured 56 mean marks out of 80. Now we have to calculate the marks of a subject having maximum marks as 50.
Marks for a subject of 50 marks would be as follows: = 56X50=2800/80=35 (b). No.
(c) No.
(d). See Sl. No. 43. 
49  For example à Subject – Math If Reference year no of students were 69, Here compartment of 5 students.
Its marks 15,19,17,16,20=15+19+17+16+ 20=87 Total marks of 695=64 students are 3840. Method 1. The average of 64 students excluding compartment students is 3840/64=60 Method 2. The average of 69 students including compartment students is 3840+87=3927/69=56.91 Which method we have to follow method 1 or method 2. If both methods are wrong, please explain the right one with an example. 
Method2 is correct. 
50  (a). My School has a 6th subject, Information Technology. How do I assign marks/grades for the same as the total is 50 marks?
(b). Can I assign 4 teachers, a team of two as externals to two different schools? (c)Can an IT teacher be included as a member in the team of internal examiners as we have Information Technology? 
(a). Say a student has secured 56 mean marks out of 80. Now we have to calculate the marks of a subject having maximum marks as 50.
Marks for a subject of 50 marks would be as follows: = 56X50=2800/80=35 (b). No.
(c) No. 
REFERENCE YEAR  
51  Can reference year be different for all main five subjects or it will remain the same?  Reference year for the average of the subjects as well as per overall average has to be the same only. Thus, schools have to use only one
year as the year of reference. 
52  Is it compulsory for to us the average marks for 6th and 7th subjects? Or the school can tabulate the marks of these subjects also in the same way
as is done for 5 main subjects? 
Yes. As per policy, only mean of the 3 best awards are to be given in 6^{th} and 7^{th} subjects. Tabulating the marks of 6^{th} and 7^{th} subjects similar to first/main 5 subjects is not as per policy and thus wrong. 
53  As per the policy for the tabulation of marks for class X board exam 2021 based on internal exam conducted by the schools, the reference year of our school (2018
19) contains 74% when we calculated at school level, but the actual performance of our student’s performance in 202021 is around 80.6%. In this regard, can I expect clarity on the following queries? a) As per 202021 percentage 80.06%, shall we precede irrespective of reference year 74%? b) If we proceed with 80.06%, will it be cited by a board that the reference year is deviated? Even if the board cites, shall we send the supporting evidence of students’ performance to the board? 
a) You cannot go as per your current year’s performance by leaving reference year. You have to follow the reference year as given by the CBSE.
b) If you will calculate the result with 80.06%, this will be treated as noncompliance with the policy. c) No supporting evidence is required by CBSE to accept the claim of the school against the policy. 
54  Do we add on the subjects that students have offered? These are not included in the historical reference. Some students have offered French, German and in lieu of Hindi.  No. You have to use the average provided by CBSE.
Marks in French/German be awarded as per the information given in FAQ 44 
55  If a school is not happy with the system of awarding marks provided by CBSE because the average is found too low to the standard of the existing batch, do we have any other option?  It is mandatory to follow the policy issued by CBSE. 
56 
Subject wise and overall average provided by CBSE and calculated by the school are different. How CBSE has calculated the averages? 
The calculation is as follows:
Subject average Say school is having 10 students Average in Science theory(MM=80) 70+69+71+77+75+70+68+55+74+69=698/10= 69.8 Over All average = Sum of the marks of all the students of all the subjects ÷ Sum of the total number of students in each subject. 
57  My school is owned by a group of chains of schools having rich experience in imparting quality education. This school has sponsored the students for the first time in ClassXII in 2021. The Average provided to us is much below the performance of our
schools. How to prepare the result. 
For the schools owned by groups, the chain of schools, CBSE has also provided district, state, and national performance of group or chain or schools. The reference year will be calculated on basis of the best performance of the last two years. The result is to be prepared based on the same.
