Practical Exams for CBSE Class 12 Board Exam to be held online

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Monday announced that schools that have not completed the practical or internal assessment for Class 12 exams should conduct the remaining assessment in an online mode only.

The circular issued by board reads, ““Schools with pending Practical/Internal Assessments are permitted to conduct the same now in only online mode and upload marks on the provided link the latest by 28.06/202.” Earlier, the last date to submit the marks was 11.06.2021.

Many schools were not able to complete their practicals, which were to be conducted physically in schools, as most states ordered a complete closure of schools due to the surge in COVID-19 cases in April.

In a letter to School, the board said – “Regarding subjects for which the external examiner has not been appointed, the concerned school teacher of the subject will conduct the internal assessment based on the instructions given in the curriculum in online mode and upload the marks awarded at the link provided by the board.” 

The board has also informed the school that they have to take a screenshot of the online meeting with the student, external examiner, and internal examiner as a part of records.

The board is yet to decide on the criteria through which class 12 result 2021 will be prepared.
