So, in order to facilitate schools and help them in compilation and moderation of results and reduce any inadvertent errors on their part, a comprehensive and feature-rich system was developed by IT team of the CBSE,” CBSE Examinations Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said.He noted that there were about a lakh students who were from boards other than CBSE.“The schools were requested to verify their roll numbers, name of candidates and name of the board so that their data could be taken from the boards concerned,” Bhardwaj said.“The system also calculated class 10 component based on data taken from various Boards. It also facilitated schools in uploading of class 10 marks for non-CBSE candidates whose data could not be received from board concerned and calculation of its 30 per cent component,” he said.The number of candidates scoring above 95 per cent has increased from 38,686 last year to 70,004 this year.

The exact dates will be announced in some time,” Bhardwaj said.While the announcing the marks tabulation policy, the board had clarified that since the components, including marks of class 11 and class 12, will be awarded at the school level, they will strictly not be comparable across schools due to the variations in the quality of question papers, the evaluation standard and processes, the mode of conduct of exams, among others.“Therefore, to ensure standardisation, each school will have to internally moderate the marks to account for the school level variations by using a reliable reference standard,” according to the policy.“The subject-wise marks assessed by the school for 2020-2021 should be within a range of plus/minus five marks obtained by the students in the school in the subject in the reference year,” it said.
