The Council of Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has announced the revolutionary move it is planning to take on Monday. This move will change the complete scenario for students regarding the CBSE, ICSE and ISC class 10th and 12th Boards. On Monday CISCE announced that it is going to reduce the required percentage in the 10th and 12th boards significantly in 2019. It has come to light that CISCE is working on a plan to reduce the passing percentage for CBSE, ICSE and ISC board exam to 33 % from 35%.
Here is Why CISCE Reduced the Required CBSE, ICSE and ISC Board Passing Percentage
This decision was taken by the CISCE on account of the recommendation from the IBWG that is Inter Board Working Group for bringing all the board on with the uniform passing criteria. This recommendation claims to improve the standardization of the boards. Also, the decision of reducing the passing percentage for both 10th and 12th boards to 33 % was decided by the CISCE.
Where in CBSE, to pass the 10th and 12th boards, now students will need to clear each subject and will need to score 33% in total there, in UP Board the new passing criteria includes scoring 33% in internals and practicals and in theory as well in each subject. The decision of redefining the pass percentage of the students appearing for 10th and 12th board exam was taken on account of standardizing the marking system of every board.
Now, Score 33% to Pass CBSE Boards From 2019
After the announcement popped up on Monday, the media is going crazy over the news of new pass percentage for the 10th and 12th boards under CBSE, ISC, ICSE. The CISCE has announced that from 2019 the students will need to score only 33% for clearing the board exams for both 10th and 12th level.
Earlier the percentage required to clear CBSE 10th and 12th board exams were 35% and now after the announcement, it has been redefined to 33%. The new marking criteria will be implemented in 2019 and the schools have already been notified to get prepared for the new marking schemes. This decision is definitely going to bring standardization to every board for passing criteria.
