CBSE told the SC about its scoring plan for Class 12th, which will factor in students' performance over 3 years or from Class 10.
The total marks should be based on the past performance of the school in Class 12 board exams, it said. "The historical performance of the school, in terms of the best overall performance in the previous three years' Board examination, will be taken as the reference for moderating the marks assessed by the school for 2020-21," the Board has 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, appearing for the CBSE, 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", Mr. Venugopal said.
About 40 percent of the marks will be based on Class 12 pre-board exams, 30 percent on Class 11 final exam, and 30 percent marks will be based on best-of-three Class 10 marks, the CBSE told the bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheshwari.
