Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CICSE) has announced the new assessment scheme by which students’ performance will be assessed for the board exams this year. According to PTI news agency, the board has decided that an average of student’s best three paper marks will reflect the overall performance of the students in the exams. Along with the average of the best three subjects for which the students appeared in the exam, the board will also take into consideration the internal assessment marks allotted to the students in the subject and its percentage component.
The decision comes in the wake of the board cancelling the re-conduct of the pending board exams of the students due to the increasing number of Coronavirus cases in the country. Earlier, CICSE had postponed the board exams of the students in the month of March after the onset of Coronavirus in the country and subsequent imposition of the lockdown in the country by the central government.
A two page detailed document released by the CICSE showed that the board has classified the subjects into various categories according to their varied component in the board exam and internal assessment. After incorporating both the aspects, the final result of the students will be prepared. In the document released, CICSE said that it has taken into consideration various permutations and combinations on the basis of the past five year trends of the board exam to reach on the formula. It also said that it has taken advice from premier statisticians in the country to arrive on a solution that benefits all students equally to the best extent possible.
