SEBA-AHSEC Evaluation Criteria – How to calculate marks

On 16th June, the Health Department of Assam has given a red flag to conduct examinations considering the Covid-19 situation across the state, followed by the suggestion on 18th June. The Education Minister of Assam chaired a high-level meeting with its stakeholders and decided to cancel the AHSEC-SEBA examinations.

Evaluation Criteria for SEBA and AHSEC

On 19th June, two committees were formed to decide an alternate method to evaluate the SEBA and AHSEC board students. Within ten days the committee submitted its evaluation criteria to the Edu Department of Assam. On 1st July, the alternate methodology was accepted after receiving a green signal from the Advocate General.

Class 10: SEBA (HSLC) Evaluation Criteria:

SEBA-AHSEC Evaluation Criteria - How to calculate marks

For HSLC candidates the evaluation is simple. Like other state boards and CBSE, SEBA also followed the same path.

There are two different methodologies for HSLC students:

Method A: For the students who were present in the Pre-Board/ Half Yearly/ Unit Test held conducted for the class X:

Method B: For the students who were absent in the Pre-Board/ Half Yearly/ Unit Test held for class X or record of the student is not available in the school.

  • Method A category, the following criteria are to be followed:

40:40:20

For the theory portion, 40 percent marks are to be taken from class IX and 40 percent marks is to be taken from class X and the rest 20 percent marks is to be taken from marks obtained by the student in the theory portion of each subject in the unit test/any online/offline examinations held in the current year/ attendance in the classes/ other activities, etc.

  • for Method B category, the following criteria are to be followed:

70:30

Marks will be awarded based on 70 percent from class 9 exams, 30 percent marks from home assignments/ unit test/ any other online/offline examination held in the current year/ marks obtained in online examinations held if any/ attendance in the online/ regular classes/ extra-curricular activities, etc.

Additional Points:

  • On failure to do so as mentioned above or in case nonavailability of record of Annual Examination of class IX, the results of such particular student will not be declared and he/she has to appear in the immediate next HSLC/AHM Examination to be conducted by SEBA with the same Roll Number, on receipt of their request.

  • Those students who are not satisfied with this record-based marking/ evaluation system will also have the liberty to appear in the immediate next HSLC/AHM Examination to be conducted by SEBA, for betterment on receipt of their request.

How to calculate marks of HSLC 2021 using the formula:

Let’s say a student secured the following marks in Class IX:

  1. English
  2. Assamese
  3. Maths
  4. Science
  5. Social Studies
  6. Elective
  1. 85
  2. 80
  3. 76
  4. 84
  5. 82
  6. 86

Let’s say a student secured the following marks in the theory portion of each subject in the Pre-Board/ Revisionary Test held in class X (current year).

  1. English
  2. Assamese
  3. Maths
  4. Science
  5. Social Studies
  6. Elective
  1. 90
  2. 85
  3. 80
  4. 94
  5. 86
  6. 90

To calculate marks for HSLC we need to do the following:

Subjects40% marks from IX40% marks from X20% Internal Total
English40% of 85 = 3440% of 90 = 361686
MIL32341581

Note: Marks taken in 20% internal is just taken as an assumption.

This is the way you can calculate your marks as well.

Class 12: AHSEC (HS FINAL) Evaluation Criteria:

SEBA-AHSEC Evaluation Criteria - How to calculate marks

For different streams of AHSEC different formulas are made. Mainly there are two types of criteria for regular students.

Method A: For the students of Science and Arts Streams with practical
subjects.

Method B: For the students of Science and Arts Streams without practical
subjects.

Students who fall under the Method A category will be evaluated as:

50:30:10:10

  • 50 marks calculated from 50 % marks secured by the student in the best three of
    the subjects in the HSLC or equivalent examination.

  • 30 marks be calculated from the marks obtained by the students on the basis of the
    practical examination conducted by the institutions.
  • 10 marks be calculated on the basis of marks obtained by the students in the Class
    Test / Unit Test / Annual Examination / Pre-Test / Assignment / Project Works etc.
    and also attendance during the Academic Session 2019-2021.

  • 10 marks be allotted on the basis of consideration of the marks obtained by the
    students out of 90 (Ninety) in earlier 3 (Three) components and 10% of marks
    secured out of 90 be allotted accordingly.

Students who fall under the Method B category will be evaluated as:

50:40:10

  • 50 marks calculated from 50 % of marks secured by the students in the best three
    of the subjects in the HSLC or equivalent examination.
  • 40 marks be calculated on the basis marks obtained by the students in the Class
    Test / Unit Test / Annual Examination / Pre-Test / Assignment / Project Works etc.
    and also attendance during the Academic Session 2019-2021.

  • 10 marks be allotted on the basis of consideration of the marks obtained by the
    students out of 90 (Ninety) in earlier 2 (Two) components and 10% of marks secured
    out of 90 be allotted accordingly.

For detailed criteria: AHSEC HS Detailed Evaluation Criteria For 2021

How to calculate marks of AHSEC 2021 using the formula:

For the candidates having practicals is 50:30:10:10

Let’s say a student secured the following marks in Class X:

  1. English
  2. Assamese
  3. Maths
  4. Science
  5. Social Studies
  6. Elective
  1. 85
  2. 80
  3. 76
  4. 84
  5. 82
  6. 86

Best three subjects to picked up from the above marks.

In this case, the student scored 86 in Elective, 85 in English, and 84 in Science. So these best marks will be used to evaluate the HS Final marks. Let’s understand how.

The obtained marks of these subjects will be 86+85+84=255

Percentage= Obtained Marks/Total marks x 100

Percentage= 255/300×100=85%

Let’s assume a student secured the following marks (OUT OF 30) in the practical portion of each subject in the practical exams held in class XII (current year).

  1. Physics
  2. Chemistry
  3. Biology
  1. 26
  2. 25
  3. 27

The obtained marks of these subjects will be 26+25+27=78

Percentage= Obtained Marks/Total marks x 100

Percentage= 78/90×100=86.6 (87%)

To calculate marks for HS FINAL we need to do the following:

Subjects50% marks from HSLC30% marks from Practical10% InternalMarks obtained10% of obtained
marks out of 90
Total
English50 % of 85 = 4330 % of 87 = 267767.676+8=84

Note:

  • Marks taken in 20% internal is just taken as an assumption.
  • Math is considered as 4th subject.

So this is the way you can predict your exact marks.

If any error found let me know using this form.

Option for Re-Appear/Betterment for AHSEC and SEBA

Both the Committee decides that the students who are dissatisfied with the assessment
done by the respected boards this year (2021), should have an option for appearing in a special
examination to be conducted by the respected boards whenever the situation becomes conducive for
holding the examination. Moreover, the student’s performance in this examination will be
assessed with existing norms of the boards.

Results:

The results is expected to be released by 31st July. However, there will be no mention of ranks like Star, Letter, highest marks obtained, and merit list in this year’s results.
