Sub : Passing Criteria for Class X students from 2019 Batch.
The criteria adopted by CBSE for computing the result of Class X in 2018 was as under
1. All candidates who had appeared in the exam as per the scheme of studies were exempted from separate pass criteria in internal assessment and Board examination. The result was computed in each subject taking into account combined marks obtained in internal assessment and Board exam and those who secured 33% marks was declared pass in that subject.
2. In case of a candidate being absent in Practical/Internal assessment, the marks were treated as 0(zero) and result was computed accordingly.
It has now been decided to extend the same passing criteria henceforth for the students of Secondary classes i.e. candidates appearing for Class X examination in 2019 onwards will have to secure overall 33% (both taken together) in the subjects to be eligible to pass that subject.
Kindly take note of above and also disseminate to all stakeholders
