CBSE Issues Advisory to Schools on Theory-Practical Marks Variation

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued an advisory directing its affiliated schools to accurately evaluate practical exams due to a significant variation between theory and practical marks in certain subjects. The advisory has been issued to review the internal assessment processes to ensure a more robust and transparent system.

The CBSE in a notice stated that they have found “a significant variation between theory and practical marks in certain subjects among 50% or more students in about 500 CBSE-affiliated schools, based on past years’ result statistics” that were detected through advanced AI tools.
 
The board said that this variation highlights the need for a “meticulous assessment during practical examinations in schools.”
 
Hence, the Board has issued an advisory to such schools to review their internal assessment procedures. “The aim is to implement a more robust, transparent, and reliable mechanism to ensure that the assessment process is realistic and adds substantial value to the students’ academic journey.”
 
In recent years, questions have been raised about the rising pass percentage and those scoring above 90% in their class X and XII board exams having gone up in the state boards too.
