The controller of examination said that the schools where practical work and internal assessment are pending, they are allowed to complete it only through online mode.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) asked schools to complete pending practical work and internal assessment of class 12 through online mode only and directed them to submit marks by June 28. CBSE’s controller of examinations Sanyam Bhardwaj has said in a letter sent to the schools that it has been observed that some schools have not been able to complete the school based assessment in various subjects due to the COVID epidemic.
He said that the schools where practical work and internal assessment are pending, they are allowed to complete it only through online mode and they should upload the marks on the link provided till June 28. Regarding the outline of the process of practical examination, he said that the external examiner will take the oral examination of the students through online medium and during this the internal examiner will also be present on-screen.
Bhardwaj said, “The school will take screenshots of all three as proof of the examination being conducted. The students will have to intimate the date of the online examination in advance, however the actual link will be disclosed only on the day of the examination.” CBSE in February had asked affiliated schools to conduct practical exams, internal assessment and project work for class 10th and 12th between March 1 and June 11.
The board had also directed the schools to re-take the practical examination for those students who could not appear because the student himself or a family member was infected with COVID-19. Some schools had already completed evaluation, some could not as schools had to be closed in view of the second wave of COVID-19.
The written examination of class 12th was to be held from May 4, which had to be postponed and later canceled. The Center last week decided to cancel the CBSE Class 12 board exams due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the decision was taken in the interest of students.
CBSE has constituted a 13-member committee to fix an objective criterion for elective evaluation for class 12 students.
