The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has canceled the Class 10 Board Exams. The decision was taken in a high-level meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Students now will not have any board exams and will be promoted to the next class based on a special criterion, termed as “an objective criterion”
The term ‘objective criterion has created a dilemma among the students. Technically, objective criteria are a piece of information that is prepared on the common benefits for both parties. In this case, it will be beneficial for students and as well as CBSE.
The details on what the exact criterion are not yet shared by the Board. The criteria will be developed by CBSE and announced, when finalized. But, after discussing many academicians I think the few of possible objective criteria may be as follow:
1. The Board may award the marks based on the average of the highest marks obtained by students in the internal or practical assessment. This year, no exam is being held. So, there are high chances that the selection will be done entirely on internal assessment.
2. The board may create a Theory and Practical Based Project Grading System where the students may complete it at home and submit it to the school. And the result will be calculated based on a project-based assessment.
3. CBSE may ask the school to assess the students online with a subjective question paper and upload the marks to the CBSE website.
4. There is a possibility to include certain CCE parameters to assess the students through online activities or MCQ-based assessment.
5. CBSE may give an option to the schools to take the right decision based on the Covid Situation in their local area. So, don’t be surprised if there is an option for conducting Home Based Exams at respective schools even.
Finally, I would like to say that students in class 10th need not worry. Education Minister has also said that any candidate who is not satisfied with the allocated marks will get an opportunity to sit for the written exam as and when the conditions are conducive to hold the exams. For class 12 students, the exams will be held when the COVID-19 situation is eased. This, however, will lead to a further delay in an already delayed academic schedule. It is also expected to postpone the admissions for the higher education institutes.

Dr.manjeet jain sir it’s an informative article and it will help to step further, time is also running so it’s very useful.
Thank you verymuch Dr.Manjeet Jain Sir
Without any transparent examinations it is impossible to evaluate the students. Average students may be happy whatever they get without any examinations. But brilliant students who are prepared for the examination will never be happy with any criterian other than written examinations.
Let’s hope for better option.
You can still go for the exams if you aren’t satisfied
Dear ….this is irony where education field is ruled by the people who were never educators
Marks can be given on the basis of mock test conducted by the school
Cbse is run by jerks. They can’t even clarify the criteria for evaluating a student even though there’s less than a week left in session getting completed. Students that have attempted pre boards have no clue whether they should start studying for 11th or continue revising 10th grade material in case CBSE announces an internal exam as talked above
I can understand your emotions as hard work of a year is going to be evaluated with no pre decided parameters…
CBSCE should take best marks of any 3 subjects of any pre board ND they should add the project ND stuff ..
Marks should be provided to the students on the basis of internal assessment.
Already facong lpt of issues with school’s strict evaluation.While enquiring about this in school the convinced us saying that the student has better hope and will surely get about 490 in board.Now theres no exms and definitely will not get satisfied with internal assessment marks.Moreover has given a written concernt to issue TC for higher secondary admission in Feb itself,with lead to conering my ward and giving less marks.
No dear …no one has been asked anything yet. Pre Board result can never be a criteria to give marks. The amount of seriousness in pre board is 12 to 37 % lesser than in Board Exams.. As far as I have come across the average Internal marks of Belagavi is 18 Per subject in language and 19 in COre Subjects.
School teachers are asked that board will giving marks frok your pre board but it’s not fare because when pre board was held we were not prepared nd then why it will giving according pre board marks ??
No dear …no one has been asked anything yet. Pre Board result can never be a criteria to give marks.
When all the 10th class students are promoted how and where they will be accommodated in 11th. Forget about 1st or last rank. How can A be selected for a stream while B is rejected. What is the criteria for the selection?
hey Dileep, colleges are conducting entrance regardless of class X results and you should definitely apply for the admissions. If you will wait for 10th marksheets , it will be a waste of time. colleges will divide your sections definitely based on entrance exams (which may get conducted online) and you won’t any severe difficulty in future studies. Even you can enroll in online coaching or trust YouTube channels like MATHS GURUKUL by RD SIR (Personal recommendation for JEE aspirants).

What to do if you want to continue your class 11 from a different school ? Should you apply for TC or wait for 10th marksheet ?
