West Bengal Class 10, 12 exams 2021: The West Bengal Board has announced the evaluation criteria for Class 10 and Class 12 exams to declare the results of the cancelled board examinations 2021. The students will be evaluated on the basis of internal assessment marks scored during the academic year and annual exam marks obtained in the previous class.
For the evaluation of class 10 students, the West Bengal board has decided to adopt a 50:50 formula. While 50% marks will be awarded on the basis of marks scored in class 9 annual exams, the remaining 50% will be derived from class 10 internal assessment marks scored during the academic year.
For class 12 students, the board will follow a 40:60 formula. About 40 per cent weightage will be given to the best of four subjects in class 10 Madhyamik exam in 2019 and 60 per cent weightage to the annual class 11 theory exam in 2020.
For theory papers, class 12 students are marked out of 70 for lab-based subjects and out of 80 for non-lab subjects. The class 12 project or practical will be separate, marked out of 20 for non-lab-based subjects and out of 30 for lab-based subjects.
The students will be given the opportunity to appear for a written exam in the future when the Covid-19 situation is conducive to hold the exams in offline mode and the result of that exam will be considered final, an official statement said.
The West Bengal Council for Higher Secondary Education has also asked schools to submit the Class 10 Madhyamik scores by 23 June since that examination is conducted by a different council.
On Thursday, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has said that the madhyamik, uccha madhyamik results will be declared in July.
