Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country, exams of six subjects were also cancelled by the board in view of the health situation. Therefore, this year a different marking scheme was followed by the board to calculate the results. For the subjects for which the exams weren’t held, scores were recorded on the basis of an internal assessment. Meanwhile, the subjects for which exams were conducted, the three best scores would be considered for the final result and the internal assessment, if any, would also be marked.

The passing marks remained 35% for every subject. A students is open to apply for revaluation by visiting till July 16. The re-checking facility is of course only available for the subjects for which the exam was conducted. However, if the student is unhappy with the internal assessment, they can choose to take the written exam later, whenever the situation gets suitable.

It is also imperative to note that no merit list would be declared this year due to the COVID-19 situation.

The Chairperson of CISCE, Garry Arathoon released a written statement appreciating the students for showing “exemplary resilience and fortitude during this crisis period”. He also admired the students’ “patience and perseverance” while dealing with the pressure and the anxiety due to uncertainty.
