The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is expected to release the Class 10 board exam result date soon. Nearly 21.5 lakh students are awaiting the class 10 board exam results this year which will be released on its official portals -, and

Along with releasing the results online on, CBSE will also share the mark sheet of the students on Digilocker. The Digilocker app does not require the students to have CBSE Roll Number to access their result as they use their Aadhar Card number and the mobile number which was used for registering with CBSE to check their marksheet.

It may be recalled that CBSE Class 10 Board Exam was cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the class 20 marks will be given as per the usual practice for the practical marks, the 80 marks dedicated to theory will be divided into three sections - 10 marks for periodic/unit test, 30 marks for half-yearly/ mid-term exams, and 40 marks for pre-board exams.

Earlier in a circular, the CBSE has asked the schools to follow the marking or assessment policy formulated by it and warned the schools against giving inflated marks to students.

The CBSE in its circular said, "The Tabulation Policy of Class-X was to understand the principles of evaluation namely reliability, fairness and validity during the process of evaluation and to take care of the variation in the school-level evaluation process, standardize the scores across schools through a process of moderation of marks. This was necessary for the interest of fairness and to ensure that the marks allotted are comparable and there is no adverse impact or undue gain for any student because of the methodology and the processes of evaluation used by an individual school."

In order to back schools in the above-mentioned task, the CBSE gave the best of three years' performance including marks distribution and mean marks for the purpose of reference.

"Accordingly, schools were expected to follow the reference distribution while awarding marks. However, upon data analysis post uploading of marks by schools, it has been observed that while the majority of schools have followed the reference distribution, some schools have not done the same and bunched the marks in upper brackets of the given reference range. e.g. instead of distributing theory marks in 70-80 range, marks have been bunched between 77-80 range," noted CBSE.

The CBSE thinks that this is unfair for deserving candidates and that's why schools are directed to comply with the tabulation policy by awarding marks, similar with the best historic performance.
