New Assessment Scheme for NIOS Results 2020
Along with the cancellation of NIOS 10th and 12th Exams 2020, the board has also issued a new assessment scheme that has been put together by the Results Committee of the Board. According to the assessment scheme announced, all NIOS students who have appeared for the exams previous and passed them in at least 4 subjects; the average marks of best three subjects would be awarded as theory performance for which exams have been cancelled. On similar lines, for learners who have appeared for and passed in three subjects, the average of best two subjects’ marks will be used as total for marks in the cancelled papers. For students, who are appearing for the first time in NIOS 10th and 12th Board Exams 2020, their performance in Tutor Marked Assignments / Practical marks will be used to calculate their performance in the cancelled subjects.
Option to Appear in Next Exam / On-Demand Exam Available
According to the official notification, learners or students who have not been able to appear for the complete exam for 10th and 12th Class, will also be provided an option to re-appear for the Next Public Exam or On-Demand Exam, as a one-time measure, if they are not satisfied with their performance allotted on the basis of new assessment scheme. The marks scored by the learner in that exam would be considered as final for the student and they will lose the opportunity to retain the old marks that were awarded to them on the basis of the new assessment scheme.
