The Assam government recently announced that it will withdraw the controversial clause in the evaluation formulae for Class 10 and 12 examinations, which says pupils willing to become teachers or join government jobs later will have to sit for the same examination when Covid-19 situation improves.

The state government had said that as the exams were cancelled in 2021, a "special" test is required to make this year's examinees on a par with past and future students who had written and will write the examinations, and to avoid litigation in future.

"After detailed discussion, a consensus was reached regarding the alternative evaluation method. As per the decision taken, clause 5 of the government notification issued regarding alternative evaluation formula on the basis of the expert committee report would be removed," a CMO statement said.

The certificates and marksheets provided under the formulae will be valid in applying for higher education and jobs, it added.

"However, the meeting also decided that an equivalent exam may be held for teachers' recruitment in schools and colleges if deemed necessary. This will be applicable for all students of SEBA, AHSEC and other boards and education councils," the statement said.

Evaluation criteria

For Class 10 students, results will be declared based on 40 per cent from Class 9 exams, 40 per cent marks from Class 10 exams and 20 per cent based on internal assessment of students and other factors.

For Class 12 subjects with practicals, 50 per cent marks will be awarded from the average of the best three subjects of class 10 or HSLC exam, 30% from practicals and 10 per cent marks by schools. The remaining 10 per cent marks will be allotted based on the 90 per cent.

However, without practicals, AHSEC said that 50 per cent marks will be based on the average of the best three subjects of class 10 exams and 40 per cent from internal assessments and other activities during Class 11 and 12. The remaining 10 per cent will be allotted based on the 90 per cent.

Students who are not satisfied with the marks allotted will be given the opportunity to appear for the exams whenever they are held.

Two committees were earlier set up on Friday, June 25, by the Assam government to propose procedures to evaluate students of Class 10 and 12 in view of the cancellation of this year's state board examinations due to COVID-19.

The SEBA conducts the Class 10 examinations, and the AHSEC holds the Class 12 tests.
