Q1.Who gives marks and grades for practical exams and viva?
A1. The viva questions and practicals are conducted by the External examiner and the subject / internal teacher is also present for the vivas in most cases he/she also asks some questions.If the total score is of 30 marks then it is an unsaid rule that the external and internal split the total among themselves into 15 marks each.In the end this is combined and the total is presented.It is very rare to fail in practicals in regular class 12 as you have the support of the internal teacher who is normally instructed to clear everyone else it can be be a black mark on the reputation of the school.

If you fail in a subject and take the improvement exam then you do not need to perform the practical exam again,and the marks will be carreid forward, however if you are taking admission again into 12th class then you need to appear for all subjects and practicals as usual again.This will happen for the private students after they give the improvement exam in theory.The practical marks will be carried forward by your previous school and will be submitted on your behalf to the board.
