From 2016 onwards the marking scheme for class 12 examinations will be changed as has been put forth by the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) Board. The marking scheme both for the written and practical segments for Computer Science, Fashion Designing, Physical Education, Indian Classical Music (Hindustani), Indian Classical Music (Carnatic Style) and Western Music has been changed.
Earlier the division of marks for theory and practical were 50-50, which has now been replaced by 70 for theory and 30 for practical scheme. The duration for both theory and practical examination would be three hours each.
Gerry Arathoon, Chief Executive Officer, CISCE said, “Taking into consideration requirements of the universities and that of the children these changes have been introduced. Every concerned school has been informed through circulars issued by the board and have been assigned the task to inform students and parents.”
CISCE is a private board of school education in India at a national level that conducts the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) and the Indian School Certificate (ISC) examinations for class 10 and class 12 respectively.
