GO on plus two mark calculation method released

The methodology to calculate marks for Class 12 students in the state board stream has been arrived at by the School Education Department following the cancellation of the board exams.

The report submitted to the department by an expert committee stated that the methodology to arrive at subject-wise marks should be based on two sets of principles.

According to the first, regarding transparency, non-arbitrariness and objectivity, the panel called for consistent past performance to set the benchmark upon which any extrapolation method is based.

In the second, calling for fairness and equity, the panel said the opportunity structure that would have been available to students in pre-corona times should guide the scoring pattern.
