CISCE to Use New Assessment Scheme for Cancelled Papers of ICSE and ISC
The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has issued a revised assessment scheme for the ICSE and ISC examinations for 2020, the remaining papers of which were cancelled following a directive from the Supreme Court.
The new scheme will be used to award marks for the remaining papers of class 10 and class 12. The scheme has been designed on the lines of the system that was announced by the CBSE. To help students understand the new assessment scheme, the CISCE has released a detailed notification.
The results of the ICSE Board examination will be out on 15 July.
The assessment scheme takes into account a certain number of factors while arriving at a student’s score in the cancelled papers. They are the average marks scored by the students in the papers they have taken, internal assessment or subject project and practical work, and the percentage subject internal assessment for ICSE, and percentage subject project and practical work for ISC.
The CISCE has said that the new formula has been designed keeping in mind general academic ability through average marks scored by the students in other subjects and the students’ proficiency in the subject concerned through internal assessment.
The model has been developed after studying the results of the previous year, with a view to ensuring fairness to all candidates.
