Class 10 results for The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) are likely to be out by next week. They will be available for download on the board's official websites - cbseresults.nic.in, cbse.nic.in, cbse.gov.in and the DigiLocker website and app.
CBSE's Controller of Examinations Sanyam Bhardwaj in June told ANI that Class 12 results are likely to be out by July 31 while Class 10 results will be declared by July 20. The decision was made to keep students planning to go abroad for further studies from facing any problems.
The CBSE had earlier extended the deadline up to June 30 for schools to tabulate Class 10 marks and submit them to the Board
Results of CBSE Class 10 will be announced in a staggered manner, a principal of a CBSE school at Navi Mumbai had earlier told The Free Press Journal. The principal said, "In the webinar conducted by officials of CBSE, it has been clearly stated that the results of Class 10 students will be declared in a staggered manner. Results will not be declared at one go but, it will be announced as schools complete the tabulation of scores and submission of final marks because the Covid-19 situation is different in every city, district and state of India."
This year, CBSE Class 10 examinations were cancelled due to Covid-19 situation. CBSE released a marking policy wherein Class 10 students will be assessed out of maximum 100 marks for each subject, with 20 marks for internal assessment and 80 marks which were allotted for year-end board exams.
The 80 marks will comprise of 40 marks for pre-board examinations conducted by the school, 30 marks for half yearly or mid-term examinations and 10 marks for periodic tests or unit tests conducted by the school in the academic year.
Both class 10 and 12 students will be allowed to appear for the examination if they are not satisfied with the marks when the situation becomes conducive.
