Hyderabad: In a major relief to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) students, the board has tweaked the passing criteria for Class X students from 2019. All candidates are exempted from separate pass criteria in internal assessment and board examination. Hence, students need to get a minimum of 33 per cent marks in theory and practical or internal examination of each subject to pass.
The CBSE said, “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 the combined marks obtained in the internal assessment and Board exam and those who secured 33 per cent marks were declared pass in that subject.”
