The Central Board of Secondary Education has declared the Class 12 results on Friday. Due to the ongoing Covid pandemic, the examination for Class 12 was cancelled in May 2021. The second covid wave has created a standstill for school examinations all over the country.
The results have been declared on the basis of internal assessment. We have gathered together the reactions and experts’ views after the declaration of the results. Speaking in this context, Avan Goel, Business Head, Southeast Asia, Eduten Ltd Finland, said: “We congratulate all the students for their excellent performance in the 12th board results. We believe that continuous learning is important in the students life and they make India proud globally with their contributions. We wish all the students a great future ahead.”
In fact, Sahil Kapoor, Chief Commercial Officer, DinoLab India, congratulated the students for passing the examination and said, “The last 15 months have been tough for all students but things are finally coming back to normal.The resulting data suggests girls have once again outperformed. Way to go – not only education its in every field “Beti Padao Beti bacho” Best wishes to youth for future endeavors!”
“It has been a historic year where continuous performance of the child over three academic sessions have been considered. If this system is brought into the mainstream it will keep our students more focused toward giving a continuously improved performance instead of waiting for one examination which will certify their credentials.Children were caught unaware of the current format to be adopted by CBSE, so all those who took their grade XI examinations less seriously could have lost a few marks. The consistent performers do not need to
worry,” Dr Madhu Singh, Principal, Billabong High School, Malad,
CBSE School added.
Speaking in similar lines, Er. Koneru Satyanarayana, President, KL Deemed-to-be University, said, “As they (the students) embark on this new career-building chapter, it is important for them to note that the key is exploration, research, and practicality. Today, there are a multitude of new-age disciplines like Animation, Gaming, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Blockchain and Cryptocurrency among several others which were previously eclipsed by the fear of the new. However, this is the reality now and we as educationists, parents and employers must encourage students to be
explorative, fearless and committed.”
Brijesh Kohli, Director, Xebia Academy & Head of Education Programs, Global, Xebia Group International, said, “Congratulations to all the students who cleared their 12th CBSE Board Exam. Amidst the odds of pandemic, the students have exceptionally endured the uncertainties that came along. I am happy to witness the achieving rate of 2021 results. Wishing all the best to the students for a brighter future that awaits them. Extending appreciation to the teachers and parents for their perseverance.”
Pratima Sinha, CEO, DSR Educational Society, Hyderabad, “This has been made possible by the extensive back end work by the Schools in collaboration and guidance of CBSE. Results were based on the performance of the student throughout the year. Results before the Pandemic used to make or break the student and his/her future as the prominent and sought after Universities had high cut off percentage , which created a major hurdle for students to apply for the streams/ subject combinations of their interest.”
She hopes the system of multidisciplinary, continuous evaluation and documentation becomes a permanent fixture in the Indian Education System . This would be highly beneficial for students who have great potential in various skills other than the rote learned academics. “With this the pressure and stress of the one time / lifetime examination will also disperse and shatter the illusion of the parents that their ward is capable of cracking the IIT and the NEET . Opportunities to explore new avenues and frontiers will open up for the students and make them confident individuals.” Sinha added further.
Nitesh Jain, Founder & CEO, BeSingular, also added, “The CBSE results have been astounding, this year. I would like to congratulate the CBSE board on giving us students who have managed to produce such high results despite the difficult circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is absolutely heartening to see government schools like Kendriya Vidyalaya and Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya produce 100 and 99.94, pass percentages, respectively.”
“A very notable point is that the gap between the pass percentage of girls and boys has shrunk from previous years, with girls having achieved 99.67% pass percentage and the boys with 99.13% pass percentage. To the graduating batch of students, I wish them the very best for all their future endeavours,” he added.
