Trending Now

Important points from the official notification are:

- CBSE 10th Result 2021 will be declared based on objective criterion (to be set by the board).

- Students not satisfied with their CBSE 10th Result 2021 will be allowed to appear for exams (to be conducted if the conditions are conductive)

Here objective criterion implies CBSE will create an assessment scheme consisting of some set of rules. This is yet to be developed by the board and most probably the weightage of internal assessment in the new scheme might be high. We are expecting that CBSE will soon provide more updates regarding the objective criterion or the assessment scheme. 

In the official notification, CBSE has also pointed out that students who are not happy with their result can appear for optional CBSE 10th board exams 2021 later. These optional exams will be conducted when the situation due to COVID-19 get better.
