By Ojas Singh

New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a notification regarding the evaluation of practicals and assessment of board exam students. The board has extended the last date for uploading the marks of practical/project/internal assessment components for class 12 exams 2021.

“It has been observed that some schools have not been able to complete the school-based assessments in various subjects due to the pandemic. Thus the schools with pending practical’s/internal assessment are permitted to conduct the same now in only online mode and upload the marks by June 28”, the board said in the circular.

It added, “While uploading marks, it will be ensured that correct marks are uploaded so no correction in the marks once uploaded will be allowed subsequently. Examiners should keep in mind that marks allotted should not bunch towards the max marks which are highly unlikely in view of diverse levels of students.”

For the practical examination, these will be conducted via online mode and links for the same should be shared with the students in one day's advancement. Viva would be taken by the external examiner and whose dates shall be decided by him/her.

These assessments will be conducted as per the norms given in the curriculum.
