The Central Board of Secondary Education has cancelled the CBSE class 10 Examinations while the class 12 examinations have been postponed. The exams for the class 10 students have been postponed considering the pandemic situation prevalent across the country. According to a tweet put forth by the Union Education Minister, the CBSE class 10 students will be assessed based on an objective criterion to be developed by the Board.
On the other hand, the CBSE Class 12 board exams scheduled to be conducted from May 4th to June, 14th, 2021 have been postponed and will be conducted later. The minister pointed out that the situation will be reviewed by the officials on June 1 2021 and the details will be shared subsequently. Students will also be provided with a notice of 15 days before the commencement of the examinations
According to union Education minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal, "The results of Class 10 Board will be released based on the objective criterion which will be developed by the Board. The minister further added that any candidate who is not satisfied with the marks allocated to them will be given an opportunity to appear for the exam as and when the conditions are feasible to conduct the exams."
Since the CBSE is yet to release the complete pattern for the assessment of the class 10 students this year it is expected that the board will follow the assessment pattern based on the new NEP focussing on assessing the students based on their skills. This assessment pattern was launched earlier by the union education minister as a new Assessment Framework for Science, Maths, and English classes under the CBSE competency-Based Education Project.
As per the assessment framework 40 Assessment designers, 180 test item writers, and 360 monster trainer mentors will be trained to use the framework to create model question banks and collection of lesson plans. As per earlier reports, the new framework will be implemented for the students from classes 6 to 10. The new assessment framework aims at replacing the existing learning model with a competency-based framework as per the new NEP 2020.
Students who were to appear for the CBSE board class 10 examinations are advised to visit the official website of the board to check the complete details related to the assessment of the students.REGISTER FOR RESULTS UPDATES
