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.

Shimla, Manali Receive Season’s First Spell of Snow, Cheers Tourism Industry



snowfall in shimla 2021

Shimla-First spell of snow in Shimla’s tourist destinations, Narkanda and Kufri, has cheered the tourism industry as it would increase the footfall of tourists. Similarly, higher parts of Manali also reported a light spell of snow on Sunday evening. Lahaul-Spiti, however, reportedly witnessed heavy snowfall and Atal Tunnel, Rohtang, was closed for traffic. Parts of the Kinnaur district also recorded a spell of snow.

Chopal in Shimla had received 2-3 inches of snow, while Dodra Kwar recorded one foot of snow, according to the Met Department.

In Kullu, Jalori Pass had received 3 inches of snow, Rohtang top 2.5 feet, and Atal Tunnel 1.5 feet.

In Lahaul-Spiti, Koksar/Sissu had recorded 18 inches of snow, Keylong 8 inches, Darcha 12 inches, Udaipur 4 inches, Tindi 2 inches, Kaza 1 inch, and Lossar 2 inches of snow.

In Kinnaur, Chitkul had recorded 15.4 cms of snow, Kalpa 5 cms, and Sangla 7.62 cms. Nichar also received a light spell.

This change in weather has triggered a cold wave across the state. Further, the Himachal Pradesh Meteorological Department had issued a yellow alert for December 5, 2021. The Met has predicted rain and snow on December 6 too. While the weather is predicted to be dry on December 8, the state could witness more rain and snow on December 7 and December 9, according to the Met Department.

Most roads, except in Lahaul-Spiti, remain open to traffic movement, the district administrations of Shimla and Kullu confirmed. Further, the administrations said preparations are being made to keep the roads clear in case of heavy snowfall.

This tourist season is crucial for the hospitality industry which was worst hit by the pandemic induced restrictions. However, the entry of Omicron – the new variant of Covid-19 that has been termed as a variant of concern by the WHO-haunts the season. India had reported as many as 21 cases of Omicron till Sunday. If the HP Government decides to impose restrictions on the entry of the domestic tourist in view of the spread of the new variant, the hospitality industry could again face losses.
