Due to the cancellation of the Board examinations, the assessment of 80 marks will be done by the school
– based on the marks scored by the candidate in the different tests/exams conducted by the school during the year, and
– the marks should be in consonance with the past performance of the school in Class X Board examinations.
The CBSE will consider the following exams for awarding the marks to candidate
|Category of Tests/Exams||Maximum Marks|
|Periodic Test/ Unit Test||10 Marks|
|Half Yearly/ Mid-term Examinations||30 Marks|
|Pre-Board Examinations||40 Marks|
|Internal assessment||20 Marks|
In case schools have conducted more than one test/exam within each category, the result committee may fix the weightage to be given to each test/exam within the category subject to the overall maximum marks for that category.
For example, if a school has conducted two or three pre-board exams it may decide to take an average of the three exams, take the best performance in the three tests or give a weightage to each exam as considered suitable.

Five teachers from the school should be from Mathematics, Social Science, Science and two languages, and two teachers from neighbouring schools should be co-opted by the school as the external members of the committee.
The CBSE had on April 14 cancelled class 10 exams and postponed class 12 exams in view of surge in COVID-19 cases.
The decision was taken at a high-level meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The board exams are usually conducted in February-March. However, the board had decided to conduct them in May-June this year due to the pandemic situation.
