At least 82,000 college students, who couldn’t move the Class 10 board exams held by the West Bengal authorities in 2020 managed to make it via this time.
The Mamata Banerjee administration, on June 7, cancelled board exams for lessons 10 and 12 this yr due to the prevailing Covid-19 scenario. All academic establishments are closed within the state.
The authorities had ready an analysis sample based mostly on which the outcomes of the Madhyamik (Class 10 board) exams have been declared on Tuesday. The outcomes of Higher Secondary (Class 12) exams will likely be declared on Thursday.
“This year 100% candidates, including 70,316 continuing candidates and 12,506 compartmental candidates, passed the examination,” stated a senior official of the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education.
Continuing candidates are those that appeared within the examination final yr or earlier and failed in all topics. A compartmental candidate is one who has failed in a single or two topics.
“Last year, 68,044 continuing candidates and compartmental candidates had appeared for the exam. Of them, only 45.9% continuing candidates and 88.7% compartmental candidates passed the exam,” stated the official.
But this time, as there was no exams held, the Class 10 board examination outcomes have been evaluated giving equal weightage to the numbers a scholar procured within the annual examination of Class 9 and within the Internal Formative Assessment of Class 10.
In all 1,079,749 candidates had enrolled themselves for the Madhyamik examination this yr. Not solely did everybody move the examination, however at the least 79 candidates obtain the very best marks–697 out of 700. This means 79 candidates topped the examination.
Results of the Class 12 board exams, referred to as the Higher Secondary exams, held by the West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE), will likely be revealed on July 22.
“The Class 12 board exam will be evaluated giving 40% weightage to the marks a student procured in four subjects of Class 10 board exams, 60% weightage to marks obtained in Class 11 annual exams and taking into account the marks of their projects and practicals in Class 12,” Mahua Das, president of WBCHSE, had stated.
