CBSE Class 12 Result 2021 Marking Scheme: How marks will be calculated

Central Board of Secondary Education today submitted the CBSE Class 12 Result 2021 Marking Scheme to the Supreme Court. The board has detailed the process in which the marks of students would be calculated for the cancelled exams this year. The scheme proposes a break up of 30:30:40 for Class 10, 11 and 12 marks, respectively.

It may be noted that the 30:30:40 weightage is only for the theory papers that were cancelled. The practical examinations and internal assessment exams, which were conducted by schools in March and April would be included as it is.

To compute class 12 result, the board has set out parameters basis which the marks would be calculated. For Class 10, the marks based on the average of theory component of any best three performing subjects out of total 5 would be taken.

As for Class 11, only the marks of the final year end examination would be considered for the tabulation of CBSE result. As for Class 12, the school can consider the marks for unit test/ mid-terms/ pre-board examination. The result committee set by the school would decide on which exam to consider or to pick an average score.

These marks would then be given a weight of 30:30:40 and calculated depending on theory and practical marks. For 80:20 subjects, students would be given marks out of 24 for Class 10 and 11 and marks out of 32 for Class 12. The 20 marks of practical exam would be taken as it is.

CBSE Class 12 Result 2021 Marking Scheme: Final tabulation of marks

Class 10 marks would be calculated as an average only of the theory component. In other words, if the student scored 60 out of 80 in theory and 20 in practical, 60 marks would be considered to compute the best. In the example below, the score would be average of 60, 70 and 50 which is 60 marks.

Class 10 average would be the same for all subjects and students would be allotted based on the breakup of the subject. Taking the same example, say the average score for Class 10 was taken as 60, then for different marks, a different score would be picked, as shown below.

For Class 11, the final marks for that theory portion of the subject would be considered for the percent component as defined.

For Class 12, the schools would define how the internal marks would be given. Based on that formula, the marks would be then divided as per the table given above. A hypothetical calculation of marks based on the score of the student in various subjects is provided below.
