What is the pro­ce­dure fol­lowed in mark­ing the an­swers?

— Parul Sethi Each an­swer is di­vided into steps and marks are given ac­cord­ing to the weigh­tage as­signed for th­ese steps. You can get a copy of the mark­ing scheme to get a clear idea. Will a stu­dent lose marks if he/she opts for Hindi as a medium for writ­ing Class 12 Board ex­am­i­na­tion?

— Mansi Mit­tal No. The stu­dents can write their an­swers in Hindi/English medium. If a can­di­date passes in the ad­di­tional sub­ject but fails in one of the main sub­jects, what will the re­sult be like?

— Megha Mun­jal In case of a can­di­date opt­ing for an ad­di­tional sub­ject, the fol­low­ing norms shall ap­ply: A lan­guage of­fered as an ad­di­tional sub­ject may re­place a lan­guage in case a can­di­date is not able to qual­ify in the same, pro­vided af­ter re­place­ment the can­di­date has English/Hindi as one of the lan­guages. An elec­tive sub­ject of­fered as an ad­di­tional sub­ject may re­place one of the elec­tive sub­jects taken up by the can­di­date. It may also re­place a lan­guage pro­vided af­ter re­place­ment the can­di­date has English/Hindi as one of the lan­guages. Ad­di­tional lan­guage of­fered at the elec­tive level may re­place an elec­tive sub­ject pro­vided af­ter re­place­ment, the num­ber of lan­guages taken up is not more than two. How many sets of ques­tion pa­pers are dis­trib­uted in ex­am­i­na­tion hall in the Board ex­am­i­na­tion?

— Ri­tuja Sen Three ques­tion pa­per sets. I am a Class 12 stu­dent. I would like to know if CBSE would fol­low the same pat­tern of marks distri­bu­tion in the Board exam 2013 for each chap­ter of any sub­ject as given in the 2012-2013 of­fi­cial blue­prints of the sam­ple pa­pers. Please spec­ify if it is dif­fer­ent for dif­fer­ent sub­jects. If not then, would it be the sole author­ity of the per­son who has set the ques­tion pa­per to set the pat­tern of marks?

— Boi­jayanti Sarker The ques­tion pa­pers in a sub­ject for the Board ex­am­i­na­tion are based on the ques­tion pa­per de­sign for that sub­ject avail­able on the CBSE web­site. The stu­dents’ an­swers are ex­am­ined by the eval­u­a­tors strictly based on the mark­ing scheme pro­vided by the Board.
