New Delhi/01.03.2018: With CBSE revising the pass percent of class X this year, students now heaved a sigh of relief. The Central Board of Secondary Education, in the latest notification, has granted a one-time relaxation in overall passing marks. Not only has the Board relax the compulsory criteria of separate pass marks, but it has decided to put into practice overall thirty three per cent pass mark criterion for 2018 batch. This clearly indicates that CBSE class X students need not secure 33% individually in internal assessments and board exams.

The circular that has been issued to every CBSE-affiliated school across the nation says, “The examination committee of the board in its meeting held on February 16 after considering the circumstances and the facts that the current batch of class X: 2018 is coming from a different assessment background while they were in class IX (in 2017) resolved to approve the following for this batch of class-X appearing in 2018 examinations as a one-time measure.”

Note: The new rule is only applicable to the current batch.
