What is a ‘reference year’?
To ensure transparency and standardization in marks being given by schools, an average score of last 3 years’ performance of a school (Std X board exam) will be reviewed. The best performing year will become the reference year and the average marks scored here will be the benchmark. So, the subject-wise average marks being allotted in 2021 board exam have to be within a 2-marks range of the reference year for that subject
If any candidate is not satisfied with the result, what remedy will be provided by CBSE to the candidate concerned?
Any candidate who is not satisfied with the marks allocated will be given an opportunity to appear in the exam to be conducted by CBSE as and when the conditions are conducive to hold exams
If a school is new and has had only two or one Std X batches appear for board exams till date, then how will the 3-year average be taken to select reference year?
