final exam

            30%
Class X   Marks based on average theory component of best three performing subjects out of main 5 subjects.             30%

 

For evaluating a student, marks in best of three papers for Class 10 would be given 30% weightage, for Class 11 weightage of 30% and for Class 12 weightage of 40% would be counted.

While, marks in the best 3 subjects out of 5 will be will be given 30% weightage for class 10, final exam marks of class 11 will be counted, and for class 12  the marks obtained in pre boards, unit test, mid-terms, and practical’s will be taken into account.

Key points of evaluation criteria submitted in the Supreme Court –

  • Practical exams will be for 100 marks and the students will be assessed based on marks submitted by the schools.
  • If a student is unable to meet the qualifying criteria – now spread across three years of study – they will be placed in the ‘essential repeat’ or ‘compartment’ category.
  • There will be a result committee in each of the schools to rule out advantage to some students in schools, which traditionally give high marks to students.
  • There will be a moderation committee to look into the difference in marking mechanism adopted by schools to put all students on a even keel as far as award of final marks for Class 12 is concerned.
  • Historical performance of a school in Class 12 Boards for last few years , the overall percentage of marks obtained by students in past years’ board examination will be taken into account for moderation process.

 

Computation of theory marks will be done in the following manner-

For Class XII theory marks-

  • The computation of theory marks for class XII will be based on performance in one or more Unit Tests/Mid-Term/Pre-Boards theory examination.
  • “The result committee of the school may decide weightage to be given to each exam based on the credibility and reliability of the assessment. For example, if the committee may be of the considered view that only the Pre-Board exams may be taken into consideration, then a full weightage can be given to that component. Similarly, another school Result committee may decide to give equal weightage to Pre-Board exams and Mid-Term exams.”
  • If some students have not appeared in any or some of the examinations conducted by the school, the Result Committee constituted by the School will have to address these challenges based on the analysis and study of the situation prevailing in the school and thereafter draw up a criterion for the assessment.

For Class XI theory marks-

  • Computation of class XI theory marks shall be on the basis of year end final theory exam in respective subjects.

For Class X theory marks-

  • Computation of class X theory marks will be based on average theory marks obtained by the students in best three performing subjects out of main 5 subjects. This average will be uniformly awarded to all the class XII subjects based on theory weightage.
  • The Board will provide the marks for the students who have appeared in CBSE class X examinations. For students of other Boards, the schools will have to enter the information based on the class X marksheets of the students available with schools.

The Board will conduct compartment examinations for the students who are not able to meet the qualifying criteria in one subject and placed in compartment category.

Students who are not satisfied with the assessment done based on the policy will be given an opportunity to appear in examinations when conditions become conducive for holding examinations. The marks scored in the later examinations will be considered as the final score.

monsoon damage in himachal pradesh 2021

Shimla-Monsoon continues to pummel Himachal Pradesh with deadly ferocity, leading to more cloudbursts, landslides, and flash floods. Several rivers and rivulets are in spate. Incessant rains could bring more destruction as the HP Meteorological Department has forecast widespread heavy rains till August 1st. While a red alert was issued for July 28, an orange alert has been issued for July 29 and July 30 and a yellow alert for July 31st and August 1st.

An advisory has been issued for locals and tourists to not venture near the river banks and avoid unnecessary travel as incessant rains could lead to more landslides, flash floods, and uprooting of trees.  However, tourists could be seen resolutely ignoring these warnings and partying near river banks and water bodies.

As devastation unfolds, the death toll due to monsoon induced calamities has reached nearly 200, while damages to property were assessed to be in hundreds of crores. Over 350 roads, including Manali-Leh, Pathankot-Chamba, and Shimla-Kalka, were blocked due to landslides.  Half a dozen bridges, as many as 30 houses and several vehicles were destroyed. Hundreds of tourists were reportedly struck in Lahaul.

After a flash flood in Dharamshala, a massive landslide in Shahpur constituency, and a horrid rockslide in Kinnaur district that killed nine tourists and injured four people, a cloudburst triggered a flash flood in Lahaul-Spiti district on Tuesday that washed away over a dozen of people, who were said to be labourers.

According to the Director of the State Disaster Management, Sudesh Kumar, at the time of writing this report, seven bodies had been recovered while four others were missing. The cloudburst occurred over Tonzin nallah in the Lahaul region of the tribal district. Rescue operations were in progress to trace missing persons.

A team of the National Disaster Response Force, which was on its way to Lahaul-Spiti through road, remained stuck in Mandi for several hours.  

On Wednesday morning, cloudburst was reported in Kullu district resulting in deluging of Bhramhaganga – a tributary of Parvati river. A  tourist, a 25-year-old mother along with her 4-year-old son, and a hydropower official came in its spate and were yet to be traced. Beas river was also in spate and people living in shanties on its bank were evacuated.

Rackham area in Kinnaur district also reported heavy losses due to a cloudburst on Wednesday morning.

While a rockslide killed one person in Chamba’s Saluni, a helper tagged with a JCB deployed for clearing Bharmaur-Pathankot National Highway was swept away by gushing waters of a nullah on Tuesday night. His body was recovered on Wednesday.

In Shimla, a landslide between Vikasnagar and Panthaghati crushed a vehicle and caused damaged to some others. Gumma khud in Chirgaon was also in spate and reportedly swept away a bridge and about four vehicles.

Dharamsala received the highest 122 mm of rain, followed by Una 119 mm. In Solan district, Kasauli and Nalagarh also received over 105 mm rain. 

This widespread destruction has worried climatologists and environmentalists who are linking increased instances of landslides and cloudburst to environmental degradation and destabilization of hills due to developmental projects, including cutting of hills for widening of roads, construction of four lanes, hydropower projects etc.

Kinnaur: A massive landslide in Batseri on Sangla-Chitkul road in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh on Sunday killed nine persons and injured at least four others. Huge boulders rolled down the mountain following the landslide and destroyed an iron Bailey bridge and many vehicles parked along the road within a few seconds.

A tourist vehicle, which was reportedly carrying about 11 tourists from Delhi NCR, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, and Chattisgarh, was hit by boulders near Gunsa, killing nine tourists. A couple of videos of this heart-wrenching incident went viral on social media. In the video, some people can be heard whistling and shouting to warn others.

“Nine people died, and three were injured after boulders rolled downhill due to a landslide in Kinnaur district. Batseri bridge collapsed in the incident. A rescue team is present at the spot,” Superintendent of Police (SP), Kinnaur, Saju Ram Rana said.

The intensity with which boulders hit could be assessed from the fact that the iron bailey bridge on the Baspa river collapsed instantly.
