Schools have also taken a step further and sent results to students via Whatsapp and SMS, said the government. Considering new guidelines were published by DOE keeping in mind the security and safety of students, schools have sent the results to students via SMS and Whatsapp instead of calling them to school to collect them.
2.58 lakh students were enrolled in IX grade in 2020-21, out of which 2.45 lakh appeared for mid-term exams. Final results of students were collated based on mid-term and internal assessments. Based on this evaluation criteria, 1.97 students in IX passed in Delhi.
The passing percentage in IX is 80.3% for students in IX grade. Last year, the passing percentage of students was 65% which increased to 85% based on project-based assessments.
Similarly, out of 1.70 students in XI grade 1.69 lakh students appeared for exams and 1.65 students passed. 96.9% students passed in XI grade. In 2019-20, 99.25% students in XI grade passed the compartment exams. Project-based assessment formed the evaluation criteria of XI examinations, identical to IX evaluation criteria.
It is worth noting that examinations of Social Studies, Sanskrit and Third Language for grade IX and Geography & Business Studies for Grade XI could not be conducted for the year 2020-21. Further, average marks of best two performing subjects out of the main five subjects have been given in the subjects where the exams could not be conducted or the student is absent for whatever reason.
12500 students in grade IX and 3500 students in grade XI did not appear for mid-term examinations this year. All those students who have not appeared for any exams will be eligible for re-assessment. The reassessment will be based on class-based assignments, project work and other assessments. Guidelines regarding re-assessment will be released soon by the Directorate of Education.
