CBSE will be adopting 30: 30: 40 formula to evaluate class XII marks of students based on the results of Class X, XI & XII examinations respectively.

“For example, if the committee may be of the considered view that only the pre-board exams may be taken into consideration, then a full weightage can be given to that component. Similarly, another school result committee may decide to give equal weightage to pre-board exams and mid-term exams,” read the board’s notification detailing the tabulation policy. For the Class XI component, the computation will be based on the marks in the respective subjects from year-end final theory exams that the students wrote in 2019-2020. In the Class X component, the average of the theory marks of three main subjects in which a student performed best in their Class X board examinations will be computed. This average will be uniformly awarded to all the class XII subjects based on theory weightage of each subject.

There are different theory-internal assessment/practical break-ups for subjects that students have in Class XII. Some have 80 marks for theory and 20 for practicals, some have 70 for theory and 30 for practicals, and so on up to 30 for theory and 80 for practicals. Internal assessment and practicals for all subjects have already been completed in most schools and schools which have not completed it have been asked to conduct the remaining tests online. These marks will be added to the computed theory marks in each subject.
