With the release of the Central Board of Secondary Education CBSE Results 2022, there has emerged a large section of students who have taken to social media channels, to express their displeasure at the 30:70 weightage rules used by the CBSE.
The Central Board of Secondary Education opted to conduct the CBSE 2022 board exams in 2 parts - term 1 and term 2. Term 1 marks were declared by the CBSE in January 2022 followed by the Term 2 exams. However, instead of publishing the term 2 marks separately, the 22 July CBSE 2022 final results only show the cumulative marks.
The board released a press release yesterday, where speaking about Weightage of term 1 and term 2 exam marks they mentioned that the predominant feedback received showed that students had not been able to perform to their full potential in Term 1, whereas feedback was more positive for Term 2.

As per the release, the member of the committee made up of Principals and official of various schools decided to give 30% weightage to Term 1 and 70% weightage to Term 2. They also have not divulged students’ CBSE 2022 Term 2 marks anywhere.
However, the decision has given rise to a furore among students who state that in spite of them putting in an equal effort into both terms, they are losing out on the fruits of their labour due to the unfair distribution.
