CBSE class 10 Result 2021

Assessment Process

The evidence towards the performance of the student in the internal tests/exams conducted by the school should be documented student-wise and maintained in a secure manner. These documents may be called upon for subsequent verification as per the instructions of the Board

As per the information collected from the schools through Regional Offices of CBSE, schools have conducted different types and number of tests/exams. Broadly, the following exams/tests are common and will be used for school-based assessment and the weightage in terms of maximum marks for schools who have conducted the above tests/exams is given below

Weightage of Marks 

(a) Periodic Test/ Unit Test10 Marks
(b) Half Yearly/Mid-Term Examinations30 Marks
(c) Pre-Board Examinations40 Marks
Sub-Total80 Marks
Internal Assessment20 Marks
Grand Total100 Marks

In case schools have conducted more than one test/exam, within each category, the Result Committee may fix the weightage to be given to each test/exam within the category subject to the overall maximum marks for that category. For example, if a school has conducted two or three pre-board exams it may decide to take an average of the three exams, take the best performance in the three tests or give a weightage to each exam as considered suitable.

There are some schools where one or more of the above three categories of tests/exams have not been conducted. Further, there may be differences in terms of the mode of conduct of examination i.e., Online/Offline. Also, it is possible that some of the students may not have appeared in any or some of the examinations conducted by the schools.

In all the above cases, Result Committee constituted by the School will have to address these challenges based on the analysis and study of the situation prevailing in the school and thereafter draw up a criterion for the assessment of 80 marks. The aim should be to cover as broad a range of assessment objectives as possible.

If any candidate has not appeared in any of the assessments conducted by the school, the school may conduct an offline-online or a telephonic one-to-one assessment and record documentary evidence to certify the recommendations. The student may be assessed objectively on that basis by the school out of maximum marks of each subject

Candidates with Benchmark Disabilities

Result of More Than 5 Subjects 

In case, a student has offered different subjects other than the 5 major onesi.e. painting, music etc. or offered more than 05 subjects, then mean marks of the best 03 subjects out of maximum allotted marks after conversion (in case maximum marks are other than 80) may be awarded in these subjects. While calculating marks, maximum marks being allotted to the subject be kept in mind.
