CBSE had scheduled examination for Class 12 from February 15 to March 30. However, the board decided to cancel exams of 12 subjects in mid-March owing to Covid-19 outbreak.

Later, CBSE rescheduled pending exams in July but it was never held due to the Supreme Court’s order on June 25.

The board decided to compute marks of pending exams by resorting to alternative marking scheme.

“Candidates whose results have been declared based on the assessment scheme will be allowed to appear in the optional examinations to improve their score, if they wish so. Marks obtained by the candidates in these optional examinations will be treated as final,” said a press release issued by CBSE.

The students can download digital mark sheet, passing and migration certificates, skill certificates in DigiLocker.

CBSE has not released merit lists this year in view of exceptional circumstances triggered by Covid-19 outbreak.

CBSE’s Patna coordinator Rajeev Ranjan Sinha, said, “Results are satisfactory. Though Patna region has recorded the lowest pass percentage, it has marginally improved from the previous year.”

Sinha said, “As per my observation, flying students (non- school attending) flunk more than those attending regular school. I advise students to opt for regular schooling during intermediate for better performance.”
