“The Council has adopted the Special Assessment Regime for the 2021-2022 academic year to deal with school closures and challenges in conducting exams due to the Covid pandemic. The special assessment program included two board exams, a first term exam (December-January 2021-22) and a second term exam (April).
“The final result has been prepared, which includes the performance of the first trimester exam (50% portion), the second trimester exam (50% portion) and the performance of the internal assessment (20%) .”
“There was no separate mark sheet for the first and second term exams. A single score sheet will be issued combining performance from Term 1, Term 2 and the internal assessment. The consolidated results sheet will include grades for Term 1 and 2 which will be shared with schools,” Shetye said.
