‘Passing Criteria’ Relaxation extended for CBSE Class 10 Students

Earlier this year, CBSE announced that students don’t have to pass theory and practical exams separately. A special consideration was announced for the 2018 board exams that students were required to score 33% in a subject, both theory and practical, to qualify for the Class X Board Exams for March 2019 exams as well.

According to CBSE, the policy decision will affect all subsequent exams to adopt the same passing criteria.

Anita Karwal, board chairman, announced in February 2018, that it will be a “one-time measure” taking place due to the unique situation the Class X students come from.

Karwal's letter then stated that "the current batch of Std X (2018) is coming from a different assessment background while they were in Std IX (2017)". 

A source of CBSE stated "the Board has to consider this as a policy decision."
