CBSE Class 12th Results: Overview
Cancellation of crucial board exams posed a serious challenge for CBSE in terms of determining the results of students. The results were finally derived by this method:
- 40% weightage to the internal assessments of Class 12th
- 30% weightage to marks secured in theoretical papers in Class 11
- 30% weightage to class 10th theory marks
As a result of these policies, 99.37% students passed their class 12th in comparison to the 88.78% in the year 2020. Out of 13,04,561 students, 12,95,813 students have passed this year. It was, again, a huge jump from 2019, with 83.40% of students passing the exams in 2019. This surge in pass percentage can be attributed to the exemption of students from appearing in the exams and weightage of internal assessments, thus eliminating the chances of failure in a subject.
