Class 12 students await board exam evaluation criteria for college admissions

The cancellation of board exams has led to across the country worrying about how their grades for class 12 will be evaluated. With college admissions on the line, students across the country are getting jittery about how their grades for class 12 will be evaluated. The Centre had cancelled the board examinations in May but is yet to come out with the scoring criteria.

Students are also concerned about possible inconsistencies in using internal examinations to evaluate the final marks. According to sources, there are many options that have been suggested that include giving weightage to marks acquired in class 10, board practicals, and historical data for moderation.

Mathews K Thomas, founder of All India Educators Forum, a group with over 25,000 teachers as members said, “Cancellation is a relief as students don’t have to get stressed for preparing for exams. A result as per board formula should suffice for admissions as they more or less give a realistic picture of a student.” He believes that some combination of internal marks of grades 10, 11, 12 will be evaluated in the final formula, but that is yet to be revealed. Everyone agrees that cancelling the board exams was the right decision. Even some of the State governments are now looking to cancel the exams. This can be a blessing especially for students in remote areas who had barely any learning in the past year as they did not have access to online educational tools.
