CBSE told the Supreme Court that the Class 12 2021 results will be announced by July 31st
CBSE Class 12 Results 2021: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Thursday submitted the set procedural SOPs to evaluate the Class 12 students in absence of the physical examinations due to the coronavirus pandemic. So how will the grades/ marks awarded to Class 12 students? The Board told the top court that all kinds of marks/scores achieved by the students during the year-long series of unit tests, practicals and other terminal papers will be taken into consideration. The breakup of the scoring formula suggested by the CBSE says – Marks obtained in Class X (30%)+Performance in Class XI (30%) and in-house marks obtained in Class XII (40%). This would benefit those who have remained consistently good performers in their classes.
But what if you are not happy with the present scheme of things? According to the Attorney General KK Venugopal, in case a student feels that she/he has not been evaluated properly, such students would have an option for appearing for the physical exams to better their scores. However, the schedule of the physical exams will be taken into consideration only after looking at the Covid situation, the Supreme Court was told.

The ICSE on the other hand will use the scores obtained by students in last six years to award Class 12 grades. While the Supreme Court has given an in-principle nod to the scoring plans by the CBSE and ICSE, the apex court has also said that the Boards must look into two aspects very clearly. These are- timely dispute resolution and clear-cut timeline for announcement of results and dates declaration for the optional exams.
The Supreme Court is set to announce a detailed order on this matter on June 21st. As of now, 24 states have cancelled the Class 12 board exams. The CBSE had cancelled the Class 12 Board exams on April 14 after a high-profile meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
