The CBSE had introduced a different pattern in 2021 to evaluate the progress of the students due to the pandemic. On June 1, 2021, considering the wellbeing and safety of teachers and students during the second wave of COVID-19, CBSE cancelled the class 12 board examination. The results were released based on a different method without conducting the exams.

The Board set up an Expert Committee to discuss and design a well-defined assessment criterium. The 30:30:40 format for the tabulation of marks was introduced. 30 % marks of class 10 based on the average theory component of best three performing subjects out of five main subjects. 30 % marks of class 11 based on the theory component. 40 % marks of class 12 based on unit test/mid-term test/pre-board exam.

CTA’s Department of Education congratulated all the class 12 students and teachers for the efforts they took successfully to achieve a good score amidst all the difficulties brought by the pandemic.
