The theory and practical marks of pupils in about 500 schools showed an important difference, as observed by the CBSE board. The board has recommended that schools carefully evaluate practical exams.

A reassessment of internal assessment processes has been suggested for schools by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The board found a notable mismatch between pupils’ theory and practical grades from approximately 500 linked institutions. The board has sent out an email informing schools that an extensive assessment of practical tests is necessary.

The board stated in an advisory that it has identified a significant gap between theory and practical marks in different programs among pupils of 50% or more across over 500 CBSE-affiliated schools using advanced AI algorithms based on previous year’s result data.
Because there are significant disparities between theory and practical grades in certain areas, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has directed affiliated schools to assess practical exams appropriately. In order to guarantee an improved and open procedure, the board has suggested that schools examine their internal evaluation processes.

According to a notice issued today, the CBSE has “detected, through advanced AI tools, a significant difference between theory and practical marks in certain subjects among students of 50% or more across around 500 CBSE-affiliated schools, based on result data from previous years.”

The increase in marks has grown to be a serious issue in recent years. Even at the state boards, more students are passing the 10th and 12th grade board exams and earning scores higher than 90 percent. As a result, there is fierce competition for admission to colleges.
