The Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) on Saturday released the marks distribution formula for Class 10 students, who will be promoted to Class 11 without holding final board examination due to COVID-19 pandemic.
CBSE on Saturday informed that class 10 board results will be declared on June 20 and announced a policy for tabulation of marks, as examination were cancelled this year due to pandemic situation in the country. The board has also asked schools to upload the marks of Internal Assessment latest by June 11.
While the unit test will account for 10 marks, the mid-term examination will be accorded 30 marks, and the pre-Board examination will be for 40 marks, adding up to a total of 80 marks.
The remaining 20 marks, as per CBSE’s existing policy, will be for internal assessment carried out by schools.
In case schools have conducted more than one test/exam within each category, the result committee may fix the weightage to be given to each test/exam within the category subject to the overall maximum marks for that category.
For example, if a school has conducted two or three pre-board exams it may decide to take an average of the three exams, take the best performance in the three tests or give a weightage to each exam as considered suitable.

"Schools will also have to ensure that the marks awarded by them should be in consonance with past performance of the school in class 10 board exams. Schools will have to form an eight-member committee headed by principal for finalising results," CBSE Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said.
"Schools indulging in unfair and biased practices for assessment will have to face penalty or disaffiliation," he added.
