New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced Thursday that its portal for grade 12 grade moderation will open on July 16 and will remain open until July 22. The portal link is available at cbse.gov.in.
Schools that fail to submit final grades by then will face action, said the board, which released a policy document for it.
It also warned schools to exercise due diligence and avoid pooling higher scores (over 95 percent).
“..To ensure compatibility and fairness in the higher grade range, schools should exercise the necessary care and ensure that there is no bundling of the overall grades in the range of 95 and above,” it says.
“You must therefore limit the number of students at each level with overall grades of 95 and above to ensure that this number is no higher than the number of students who got that overall grade according to the best historical achievement in the past three years,” it says further.
The board also instructed schools to declare “valid, reliable, and unbiased results” to ensure fairness.

The CBSE had told the Supreme Court that it would announce the board’s findings by July 31st.
The committee examinations for grades 10 and 12 of the 2020/21 academic year were canceled due to the second wave of Covid-19. In June, the chamber notified the Supreme Court that it had developed a 30:30:40 formula to declare the results – 30 percent of the grades would be from the grade 10 board, 30 percent from the grade 11, and 40 percent from the school evaluation of grade 12.
This means that 30 percent of the grade in the 10th class should relate to the average theoretical portion, ie of the five main subjects the three most powerful subjects are taken into account.
The 30 percent of the grades in class 11 are based on the theoretical component of the final examination, while the 40 percent of the grades in class 12 are based on unit tests / intermediate exams / board exams.
“For each subject, the school must adhere to a broad distribution of grades based on the performance of this school in this subject in the respective year,” the CBSE policy paper continues.
The CBSE document also outlined how schools could use the software provided and issued a set of guidelines for doing so.
