Days after the scrapping of the CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2021, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has constituted a 12-member panel to finalize objective criteria for the evaluation of students.
The panel comprising Joint Secretary Education, Vipin Kumar, Commissioners of the Kendriya and Navodaya Vidyalayas, and representatives from the CBSE has been asked to submit its report in 10 days.
The Centre on June 1 announced the cancellation of the examination.
“In view of the uncertain conditions due to COVID and the feedback obtained from various stakeholders, it was decided that Class XII Board Examination of CBSE would not be held this year. It was also decided that CBSE will take steps to compile the results of class XII students as per well-defined objective criteria in a time-bound manner,” CBSE said.
Earlier, the Supreme Court asked the CBSE and CICSE to file objective criteria for the assessment of marks in two weeks.
CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathy has said that the Class 12 Board Exam 2021 would be declared before August.
“Higher education institutions and foreign varsities conduct admissions around August. We are trying to bring out the Class 12 CBSE board exam results before that,” Tripathy mentioned.
