Earlier on Thursday, CBSE had informed the Supreme Court that class 10th and 12th exams will be scrapped while the class 12th students will get options either to appear for the exam after the condition is conducive or opt for internal assessment based on the last three exams.
CBSE had also presented an official notification to the court regarding the scheme of assessment for the students.According to the CBSE notification, results will be announced by July 15 with scores based on the new assessment formula.
The automatic assessments will work in the following way: If a student appeared for more than three subjects before the examinations were postponed, an average score will be calculated taking into account the three subjects in which student scored the highest. This will be allotted to the remaining subject. For those who appeared in fewer papers, the average will be on the basis of two highest scoring subjects and allotted to the remaining papers.
At least 23 subjects were pending for Class 12 students and six papers were pending for Class 10 students in north-east Delhi schools, where communal riots earlier in the year forced the process to be pushed back.
