The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will open the mark moderation portal for schools from tomorrow. CBSE class 10, 12 results will be released by July 31, as per an order from the Supreme Court.

This year the Board could not conduct exams for classes 10, 12 due to the sudden increase in the COVID-19 cases. Marks of classes 10, 12 will be released by following an alternative assessment method, details of which have already been announced by the CBSE.

In a notice to school heads on Thursday, the CBSE has said, “schools are directed to follow the reference distribution while moderating marks.”

“To ensure compatibility and fairness at the higher range of marks, schools should exercise due dilligence and ensure that there is no bunching of total marks in the range of 95 and above,” the board has said.

“The schools will therefore have to restrict the number of students at each level of overall marks from 95 and above, to ensure that this number is not more than the number of students scoring these overall marks as per the best historic performance of the last three years,” schools have been informed.
