CBSE Class 12 Time Table 2020

The marks of Class 12 impact a student's academic and professional career to a great extent. Students can choose the stream depending upon their desire and eligibility to pursue undergraduate courses. Every year, CBSE conducts the examination for Class 12 between March and April. The results are declared in May/June. The board also conducts the supplementary examinations in June/July. 


CBSE Class 12 Grading System

Annually, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducts the board examinations between February and March. Over 10 lakh candidates appear for the examination every year. Most of the Class 12 students get confused with the grading system followed by the CBSE. The grading system is the same as Class 10. The board will put all the students in a rank order and will award grades as follow.

  • A-1 - Top 1/8th of the passed candidates
  • A-2 - Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
  • B-1 - Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
  • B-2 - Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
  • C-1 - Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
  • C-2 - Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
  • D-1 - Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
  • D-2 - Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
  • E - Failed candidates

CBSE will make the minor variations in the proportion of candidates to adjust ties. All the students will be getting the same grade in case of a tie. The smaller segment will go with the larger if the number of students at a scoring point needs to be divided into two segments. 

The board will use the method of grading in subjects where the number of candidates who have passed is more than 500. CBSE has clearly stated that the grading would be adopted on the pattern of grading and distribution in other similar subjects if the total number of candidates passing in a subject is less than 500.

CBSE Frames New Rules On Low Attendance

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to monitor the attendance of students of all its affiliated schools. It has issued a new set of instructions to schools and made it mandatory to share the attendance report of its students.
