CBSE board result for class 12th will be based on the CBSE Class 10 results for the batch, their performance in Class 11th and Class 12th. Attorney General KK Venugopal on June 17 said, as for 11th, marks are similar and are averaged out after taking into consideration the units and the term exams along. Any other additional exams including the final are also being considered.

CBSE Case in Supreme Court

In a major announcement regarding the CBSE board exams 2021, Attorney General K. K. Venugopal on 17 June told Supreme Court that the declaration of results would be by July 31. The CBSE on June 4 had constituted a 12-member committee to decide 'well-defined' objective criteria for the evaluation of class 12 students. Highlighting the CBSE's policy AG KK Venugopal asserted that the policy was designed with a committee of experts. According to Venugopal, the CBSE has therefore taken into consideration three classes - 10, 11, and 12. He added that 10th being a board exam has different subjects as compared with 11th and 12th
