CBSE class XII marks likely to dip, bringing down DU cutoffs

CBSE class XII marks likely to dip, bringing down DU cutoffs

Last year, CBSE gave as many as 16 extra marks in the Class 12 Maths exam in the all-India set of papers and 15 marks in the Delhi set during the process of 'standardisation'.

The average marks in this year's Class XII results of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) schools are likely to decrease by up to 10% following the board's decision not to 'moderate' or 'standardise' — CBSE's terms for inflating marks.

This follows a resolution adopted at a meeting of school boards, called by CBSE on April 24, not to increase marks through moderation. The meeting was also attended by Anil Swarup, secretary (school education) in the HRD ministry. "The board has adopted the consensus on the issue of moderation of marks. This is expected to result in a drop in marks scored as well as a marginal dip in the pass percentage. This is likely to be the trend across boards," said a senior CBSE official.

Moreover, scrapping marks moderation is likely to affect the Delhi University cut-offs in college admission.
