The CBSE made key changes in the pattern of its examinations to reduce stress on students. The Class X final marks secured by a student will no longer be the exact same marks he or she received on the respective final examination; the combined scores of the entire year assessment will be the final marks under CCE. The scheme of Continuous and Comprehensive Evolution (CCE) was introduced from 2009-2010 and has divided the assessment of students' performance into a year-long format. This format is now being adopted in Andhra Pradesh and will be implemented from 2014-15 “The academic year will be divided into Formative Assessment (FA) and Summative Assessment (SA). Only SA would be based on exam marks, with SA1 having been completed under first term, and the final upcoming examinations, board or internal would be assessed as SA2. Final results for Class X would be based 60 per cent on summative assessment (SA1 and SA2) and 40 per cent on formative assessment’ a release said. However, for students interested in changing schools, only Summative Assessment marks will be considered, it added.
