MPBSE takes the decision in view of the gravity of the state’s COVID-19 situation
Madhya Pradesh’s school education department has cancelled the Class X board exams considering the rise in COVID-19 cases in the state.
The Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE) will now evaluate Class X students on the basis of their mid-term exams or pre-boards, unit tests, and internal assessment.
The pre-boards will get 50 per cent weightage, unit tests will get 30 per cent and internal assessment will get 20 per cent weightage. Additionally, the past three years’ performance in board will be considered for each school under the board.
However, no student will be detained. Candidate failing to obtain the minimum passing marks of 33 per cent will be given grace marks and promoted to the next class.
Only students who did not appear for any exams throughout the year, including pre-boards or unit tests, will be termed unsuccessful and have to appear for the board exams next year.
Students appearing for board exams in private mode will not be subject to internal assessment. They will be given marks based on the average of the best of five subjects in the past year.
If a student is unhappy with the marks obtained, they can appear for written exams at a later stage.
Meanwhile, the class XII board exams has been postponed in Madhya Pradesh. New dates for the exams will be issued once the COVID situation in the state improves. Students will be given information at least 20 days in advance, the board concerned said.
