New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declared the results of Class 12 on Friday. At least 99 per cent students passed the class 12 exams. Ninety nine per cent boys and 99.67 per cent girls have passed the examinations. According to the CBSE, results of 65,184 students are still pending, which will be declared by August 5.
CitySpidey talked to a few students to assess whether they were satisfied with the results which were based on alternative assessment due to the Covid-19 induced lockdown.
Aaliya Hussain, a student of Seth Anandram Jaipuria School in Ghaziabad told CitySpidey, “Considering the evaluation method, I wasn't expecting a good result.”
“I was aiming to get admission in Delhi University (DU). Now with this result, I am very optimistic and think that I will be able to get a college of my choice. But at the same time, I think the scores are a little less than what I thought I would score. My batch mates also feel the same,” she said.
A student of ASN Senior Secondary School in Mayur Vihar, Sana Pushkar Rawat said, “I am satisfied with my marks. We studied through online classes. Considering that, the results are fair enough and justified.”
Deepa Kumar, founder of Onemoreschool, an online learning platform, in a conversation with CitySpidey, said, “Students were impacted as they did not gone take the old-school 'pen and paper' tests. The rigour was missing. They need to acquire skills and knowledge going forward.”
“However, as a community we need to understand that one exam is not the end and I am sure, if encouraged, they will walk that extra mile to prove themselves. The way these students have been evaluated is not appreciated by me as many of them could have performed better," she added.
“Some of the students would have been demotivated. It will have an impact on their self-esteem and confidence. Few will be confused. However, they will have to work harder to appear in competitive exams,” she concluded.
