The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) today released the Class 12 evaluation criteria or the final strategy through which it will assess Class 12 students in the Supreme Court.

Class 12 results will be announced by July 31 and will factor in students' performance over three years or from Class 10, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) told the Supreme Court today.

The total marks will be based on the past performance of the school, it said. A "moderation committee" will be set up to check schools that award liberal marks to students to boost their performance, Attorney General KK Venugopal told the court.

"The CBSE Class 12 result committee will comprise two of the senior-most teachers in the school. If necessary, a third expert will be appointed. This will be the "moderation committee", Venugopal said.

For evaluating a student, marks in best of three papers for Class 10 would be given 30% weightage, for Class 11 weightage of 30% and for Class 12 the weightage is 40%.

Practicals will be for 100 marks and the students will be assessed based on marks submitted by the schools, a 12-member committee constituted by CBSE told the court.

"If a student is unable to meet the qualifying criteria - now spread across three years of study - they will be placed in the 'essential repeat' or 'compartment' category. Students who are not satisfied can appear again when the CBSE conducts Class 12 board exams," Venugopal told the court.

For Class X and XI the marks in best of three from five papers in term examinations will be considered. For Class XII the mark obtained in unit, term and practical’s will be taken into account.

The court, meanwhile, has asked both the CBSE and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) to include a dispute resolution panel for students who want correction of final results.

"CBSE and ICSE must incorporate two aspects - provision for dispute resolution panel in case students want correction of final results declared and timeline for holding optional exam depending on the situation," it said.

The court will hear the case again on Monday (June 21).
