The CBSE informed the Supreme Court that marks for the theory component will be calculated using a 40:30:30 formula based on the student’s performance in Classes 12, 11 and 10, respectively, to put an end to the uncertainty surrounding the results of the Class 12 board examinations affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The student will be graded on the basis of the actual marks provided by the school to CBSE for the practical and internal assessment components. By July 15, schools must finalize their results and send them to the Board’s website, after which the CBSE will announce the results by July 31. Students who are dissatisfied with the evaluation process “shall be given the option to participate in tests to be held by the board when conditions are favorable to holding the examinations,” according to the CBSE, and “scores obtained in later exams will be considered as per this policy.” Giving an opinion on this matter is like a dilemma. Due to COVID-19, conducting exams was a matter of concern as the government did not wanted to put the life of students in danger. But we also can’t deny the fact that 12th examination provides a direction to the career of any student. It is a life changing event. After this examination, student chooses their streams to create their future. So, we can say that the decision is well taken by seeing the current situation but this is not the only solution for this problem. CBSE has also plan to take oral examinations. It will help but definitely then the authenticity may hamper because every examiner not ask same level of question to every student. Well in this case whatever is happening we should have to accept it and have faith in the authoritarian decision. Also, the students must be get ready to face the humiliation by the other student because they definitely going to be compared and teased as well.
Intermediate examination plays an important role in boosting and pushing career of students. Also, it defines ways of the bright career by the marks which is obtained after the exams. But in this pandemic, it was the dilemma to choose between safety and the exams. Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s stated that Class XII examinations will be cancelled, certain states said on 5 June that they would contemplate holding their own State Board examinations. Others stated that they will make a decision shortly. Meanwhile, the state board examinations for class 12 in Haryana and Gujarat have been cancelled. Other states’ decision on the subject are awaited. The Council for The Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has cancelled its ISC exams for this year, after the suspension of the CBSE Board test on Tuesday. The CBSE has issued an official statement announcing that the Class 12 examinations that were postponed are now cancelled. The official statement from CBSE adds, “Any student who is not pleased with the evaluation has the opportunity to appear in the test as and when the circumstance becomes favorable.” Prime Minister Narendra Modi convened a meeting with Union Ministers, Cabinet Secretaries, and other stakeholders to address the circumstances surrounding the Class 12 board examinations and to go through all of the test possibilities. Prakash Javadekar, Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting, and Nirmala Sitharaman, Union Minister of Finance, are among those attending the meeting. The CBSE board will develop criteria to determining the marks. Like the 2020 model, it may also apply in 2021. Internal Assessment and those who wish to participate the exams may do so when conducted. Delhi University also reacted, saying student will be taken on merit and entrance exam is not possible. The ISC has stated that they come up with some kind of assessment for awarding marks as well. Here the question arises, what about the other examinations like JEE, NEET and the other competitive examination? For all the students and youth, this is a life-changing matter, it also shows some harsh impact on their future or career due to Pandemic.
