# Marking Imputation Formula of ICSE is Out. ICSE Marking Methodology for remaining ICSE Exam 2020

All have been eagerly waiting for the marking methodology adopted by the CISCE for the evaluation of remaining ICSE Class 10 Board exam 2020 papers and ISC Class 12 board exam 2020 papers. Finally, the wait is over. CISCE has put the marking Imputation Formula to calculate the marks of remaining ICSE board papers 2020. The  ICSE Marking Methodology for remaining ICSE Exam 2020 has been put by the council late night on 1st July 2020 on their official website.

## What is the new marking methodology of ICSE board for remaining Papers of Class 10 and 12?

CISCE has adopted a formula which has been devised by eminent statisticians from reputed institutions of the country. The marking evaluation scheme can be read on the official website of CISCE.
Here is an easy explanation of the marking methodology adopted by ICSE Board exam 2020 remaining papers. The scheme has been explained here with examples for easy understanding of students.

### Factors used in the Calculation

(i).  Average of papers of candidate’s best 3 paper marks already given in ICSE Board exam 2020 (A)
Note: The average percentage should be taken into consideration.
(ii). Subject Internal Assessment marks of the pending papers.
(iii). Percentage of subject assessment marks obtained by the candidate.(B)

Algorithm used:
For pending exams having internal assessment  ( ex: Geography, Biology, Economics, Hindi and Group III Papers)

Calculation of Paper Board marks percentage = 0.7A + 0.3B

Calculation of Paper Board marks = Paper Board marks percentage x weightage for Board marks

Note: Weightage for papers with 80 marks is 0.8 and for Group III papers with internal assessment 100 is 1.

## Easy Explanation of marking Methodology for remaining papers of ICSE Exam 2020

For easy understanding Let’s divide the pending subjects into two categories.

#### Category 1

Subjects having component of internal assessment of 20 marks. Example: Geography, Biology, Economics, Hindi.

#### Category II

Subjects having component of internal assessment of 100 marks. Example: Group III Papers- Physical education, computer applications, Economic Applications, Commercial Applications, Environmental Applications etc.

Example for Category I:

Let us assume that a student has to calculate his/her marks obtained in Geography.
Let us also assume that from the given ICSE Board exam papers 2020 a student’s highest marks in three subjects are :
Maths: 80 Physics: 75 and History: 70
The marks obtained by him in the internal assessment of the remaining paper (in our example-Geography) : 17 out of 20

### Steps to Calculate marks in the remaining papers.

1.  Calculate the average of the best 3 performing subjects

i.e (80 + 75 + 70) /3 = 75

2. Find out its percentage.
i.e. (75/80) x 100 = 93.75

3. Calculate the percentage of the internal assessment of the remaining subject paper (in our example-Geography) :
(17/20) x 100 = 85

4. Therefore, Predicted percentage board marks in the paper will be:
(0.7 x 93.75) + (0.3 x 85) = 65.625 + 25.5 = 91.125

5. Therefore, Predicted board marks in the paper will be:
91.125 x 0.8 = 72.9

6. Therefore, Final marks in the paper will be:
72.9 + 17 = 89.9

Example for Category II:

Let us assume that a student has to calculate his/her marks obtained in Comuter Applications.
Let us also assume that from the given ICSE Board exam papers 2020 a student’s highest marks in three subjects are :
Maths: 70 Chemistry: 65 and History: 75
The marks obtained by him in the internal assessment of the remaining paper (in our example-Computer applications) : 95 out of 100

### Steps to Calculate marks in the remaining papers.

1.  Calculate the average of the best 3 performing subjects
i.e (70 + 65 + 75) /3 = 70

2. Find out its percentage or equivalent marks out of 100.
i.e. (70/80) x 100 = 87.5

3. Calculate the percentage of Internal assessment of the remaining subject paper (in our example – Computer applications) is 95 out of 100
(95/100) x 100 = 95

4. Therefore, Predicted percentage board marks in the paper will be:
(0.7 x 87.5) + (0.3 x 95) = 61.25 + 28.5 = 89.75

5. Therefore, Predicted board marks in the paper will be:
89.75 x 1 = 89.75

6. Therefore, Final marks in the paper will be:

(89.75 + 95)/2 = 92.375

It is important to note that the students who have appeared only for 3 papers, best of 2 will be taken into consideration, the students who have appeared only for 2 papers, better one will be taken, the students who have appeared only for 1 paper, marks of that paper will be taken into calculation. The Marking Imputation Formula of ICSE can also be read on the official website of the council.

## What has happened earlier?

On June 26th the board has informed the apex court that they are going to decide upon the methodology to be adopted to evaluate the marks for the remaining papers. The board also told that the methodology would be uploaded on their official website within a week from the day i.e. by 2nd of July 2020. However, the board has cleared that their methodology would be different from the evaluation scheme adopted by CBSE.

From that time speculations were being made as to what marking scheme ICSE can come up with.

## Students can take the Optional Examination

It was notified by the CISCE, earlier in its press release on 26th June 2020, that the board may allow the students of class 10 and 12 to take an optional examination later. It read that “If the situation deemed conducive, in the near future, CISCE may give an option to write any or all of the remaining papers of the ICSE/ISC papers 2020”.
It was also stated that the marks obtained in the optional examination would be considered as their final marks for ICSE Board Exam 2020 and ISC Board Exam 2020 for those students.

## When Will CISCE declare ICSE Results 2020 and ISC results 2020?

Now, as the marking scheme has been released by the council, it is expected that the results of ICSE and ISC 2020 board exam is going to be declared soon.
The board has notified the court earlier that it is going to announce the ICSE results 2020 and ISC results 2020 on or before 15th July 2020. The CBSE class 10 results and CBSE class 12 results are also set to be declared around this time.

It is to be noted that some of the papers of  ICSE Board Exams 2020 and ISC Board Exams 2020 were not given due to the outbreak of corona virus followed by the lockdown in the entire nation. CISCE has later decided to conduct the exam between 1st July and 14th July 2020. However, the exams were postponed and then cancelled after a group of parents had filed a petition in the Supreme Court demanding its cancellation citing the danger of the pandemic.
