Rest of the theory marks (70%) comes from term 2, it said, and added that for practicals, equal weightage (50-50) has been given to theory marks. This move has most likely made a huge impact in the overall results of students.
CBSE said it was brought to the board’s attention that many students could not perform at their best during term 1 exam, which was held in MCQ pattern and term 2 exam was ‘positive’ for them.
Recommendations were sought from school principals and officials, and a majority of them suggested going with the 30-70 formula, according to the board.
Final results of CBSE Class 12 students were announced on July 22, in which the overall pass percentage stood at 92.71%, considerably better than 2020, when written exams for final year students were held last time.
Term 1 exam and controversies
CBSE’s term 1 question papers of Class 10 English and Class 12 Social Science subjects were under fire for controversial statements and questions.
In Social Science, a question asked about the Gujarat riots of 2002 raised many eyebrows. In English, a passage allegedly made ‘misogynistic’ remarks, which was discussed in the Parliament, and was later dropped by the board.
