CBSE extends deadline for schools to submit Class XII scores
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Monday extended till June 28 its deadline for schools to submit the internal assessment and practical scores of Class XII students.
The extension suggests the results may be declared by mid-July. Earlier, the CBSE had asked the schools to submit the internal assessment and practical scores by June 11.
The internal assessment covers projects, quizzes, group discussions, homework and class notes.
In a circular, the board said some of the schools had been unable to complete the assessment because of the pandemic.
The board had asked the affiliated schools to complete their internal assessment and online practicals and submit the score.
“The extension is a good decision as many schools could not conduct the internal assessment and the practicals. Now that the CBSE has said June 28 is the final deadline, it seems the board can announce the results by July 15,” said Kiran Mehta, former principal of Salwan Public School.
The board has decided to announce the results on the basis of school exams, internal assessment and practicals. It has set up a committee to suggest the criteria for the award of marks.
Mehta said the schools had conducted pre-board exams in all papers that the board would have covered. In addition, the schools had held half-yearly exams on all subjects.
If the results are announced by July 15, it will help the students appear in entrance exams and secure admission to institutions of higher learning, she added.
