Moderation policy for class 12 CBSE board
Q: What is policy of moderation for CBSE Exams adopted by the board?
A: Prior to the declaration of results of Senior School Certificate (Class XII), the Board adopts the Moderation Policy in the following manner:
a) To compensate the candidates for the difficulties experienced in solving the question in a specified time due to misinterpretation/ambiguity of questions and errors, if any, leading to multiplicity of performance and causing constraints on consumption of time for other questions.
b) To compensate the vagaries and to bring uniformity in the evaluation process.
c) To bring uniformity on account of element of subjectivity involved in the evaluation process.
d) To level up the mean achievements in the set-wise performance of the candidates attributed to the difference in the difficulty level of different sets of question papers in the multiple sets scheme.
e) To maintain a near parity of pass percentage of the candidates in the current year vis-à-vis preceding years, subject-wise, and overall.
