A few months back, CBSE cancelled the board exams of 10th and 12th classes as the country was witnessing a sudden surge in Covid cases. Following this, the other state education boards also decided to cancel the exams. Now students have been waiting for their results. CBSE and other state boards will soon declare the Class 12 results by adopting a different pattern of marking scheme since exams are not held this year. However, students have been wondering what criteria will be adopted for assessment as there was no clearance about the same.
After the cancellation of board exams, now several state boards have announced the criterion on which the results of class 12 is being calculated and are planning to announce the class 12 results very soon. The Centre and State boards had to cancel the exams because since the country was experiencing a high rate of infected cases and deaths caused by the outbreak of the second wave during months of April and May.
Firstly, the CBSE, CISCE and several state boards had postponed the class 12th exams as they were hoping that the situation will get better and then they could conduct the exams. However, after considering the health and safety of the students and teachers, most of the boards decided to cancel the exams. Though the condition now seems to be under control, but the prediction of the arrival of third-wave does not allowing the situation to be completely normal. Recently, some state boards have announced evaluation criterion for class 12 results and most of the states including CBSE will announce the results by July 31.

What if Students Feel Dissatisfied With Their Results?
Among all the states, most of them have provided an alternative for those students who will not feel satisfy with their class 12 results. They can improve their scores by giving offline written examinations, depending on the Covid situation in the respective states. The state board of Odisha has declared the results of class 10th students on June 25 and after that, the students started complaining about the evaluation criterion. So, the Odisha government has scheduled the written examination of class 10 from July 30 to August 5 for the students who are not satisfied with the evaluation criterion. Therefore, CBSE and other state boards are also considering the alternative for written tests for class 12th students.
