The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has implemented few changes that may affect your CBSE Class 10 and CBSE Class 12 results.
The 2017 CBSE exams were delayed by over 10 days due to State Assembly Elections in 5 states in the month of February and March, the CBSE 12th and 10th Board Examinations concluded on April 29, 2017.
CBSE and 31 other state and national boards have decided to go against the policy of moderation and this may leave students and parents unhappy. Moderation is a policy under which boards go lenient in their checking and give extra marks to students.
The marks are granted across the board to tally with the grace marks in order to employ standardisation. However, standardisation will be implemented this year. This year, the CBSE Board Examinations would expectedly have lower percentages as boards have decides to go against moderation.
The decision against moderation has been initiated to curb the extra-ordinarily high cut offs at the degree courses. Sources reveal that he increasing cut offs at various universities in the country had given rise to concern.
According to sources, the decision to discontinue moderation would only adversely affect the extremely high percentages received by students. Students in Delhi were getting scores of 100 per cent in various examinations.
It is expected that after discontinuing moderation, only the truly deserving candidates would score very high percentage.
However, overall, it is expected that a considerable dip in the percentage of marks scored by Class 10 and Class 12 exams can be witnessed this time. The Class 10 Board examinations are making a comeback from this year.
