Last year, due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, CBSE conducted the class 10th and 12th board exams in two sessions - Term-1 and Term-2. The final results of the students were then released by combining the marks obtained from both terms. In the theory examination, 30 percent of the marks from Term 1 and 70 percent of the marks from Term 2 were considered. Meanwhile, in the practical examination, marks from both terms were considered equally (50-50 percent). However, this year CBSE has returned to its previous pattern of conducting the exams in a single term.
The task of preparing results for lakhs of CBSE students is not an easy one. After the exams, the copies are checked carefully by the board officials, which is a time-consuming process. This delay in the result declaration often leads to anxiety among students. However, students need not worry about the calculation of their marks in board exams. The CBSE Class 10th and 12th board exams have a total of five subjects, and the marks obtained in each subject are added to determine the final score. For admission to colleges, class 12th students' scores are based on their best five subjects. The board provides class 12th marks in both numbers and percentages, while class 10th marks are given in CGPA format.
