Will CBSE Give Grace Marks To Class 12 Physics Paper?

Written By: Sashikanth Sai

The CBSE class 12 board exams which started on Mar 5 will conclude on Apr 13, 2018. Though the board exams are still in progress, there is a rumour amongst class 12 students that says the board will award grace marks for the physics paper. What makes students think so?

Most of the class 12 students agree that the physics exam, which took place on Mar 7, i.e., Wednesday, is one of the scoring subjects because the questions are very straightforward. Prior to the physics exam, many students raised their dissatisfaction for having only one day for the revision, as the board exams started with the English paper on Mar 5, 2018. Unfortunately, this has become worse when board set the paper tough.

We understand that this is a huge disappointment to students who are desperately looking for a perfect score. The questions in the physics paper, specifically in the Section C, were tricky and indirect.

It may not be a huge discussion if students miss the perfect score closely. Woefully, some students are getting frightened, for they are unsure if they will attain the minimum qualifying marks or not in the physics paper. In order to clear this dubiety, we have decided to provide some facts based on our observation.

We don't think the board will award grace marks to the students who will score above 60. As the petition was filled by many students, the board may instruct their examiners to evaluate the papers leniently.

CBSE has scrapped the Moderation Policy last year. So there will be no point in addressing this again. However, a coin may turn towards any side if the judiciary intervenes because it has happened in the past also.

We hope that the CBSE will understand the situation and difficulties faced by the students. It will be of some benefit, in an unconventional manner, to award a maximum of five marks or less to the students who fall short in qualifying.

The results of the CBSE class 12 are to be released in May. So discussing a lot at this moment will bring down your morale and confidence, specifically for students who're aiming for entrance examinations such as JEE. If we get any trusted information, we will gladly pass it on.
