A startling reality of board tests for CBSE Class 12 has emerged. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has given the approximately 56 additional marks to class 12 learners, according to the recent reports. Under the’ Moderation System ‘ clause, the marks were improved. The reports said the results of the Delhi region’s Science Stream student scored 84% or less, which is improved by about 11%. In Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics, a total of 32 marks have been improved.
WHAT IS MODERATION SYSTEM
Moderation system implemented by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to assign the additional marks for the amount of reasons to the learners. The’ outcome committee’ takes the choice to provide these additional marks, taking into account the standardization level of the consequence. In Physics and Mathematics, a total of 11 marks may be added as per the system policy. While Chemistry has 10 additional marks, Political Science has 6 marks, Economics, Biology and Business Studies have 5 marks each. Sociology and geography consists of two or three additional marks.
MODERATED MARKS ARE NOT EQUALLY DISTRIBUTED
The CBSE official clarified the policy of moderation with an instance that moderated marks are not the same for all learners. According to the policy, this moderation policy will not benefit if any student fails in the tests. On the other hand, total marks must not exceed the total of 95 marks under moderation. Let’s look at the instance. If a student in a topic has scored 89 marks, then 6 additional marks will be given. On the other hand, if a student scored a total of 84 marks in a topic, there will be 10 additional marks.
In 2018, for a total of six topics, CBSE implemented this strategy, which has now grown to the nine topics this year.
Under the Moderation Policy, the range of marks is not set. Based on the ambiguity in the question paper, assessment scheme and the difficulty level of the question paper, the additional marks were given to the learners.
