Students in our country have been living under a great pressure. A pressure of cramming the whole syllabus and scoring as much marks as possible. While there are students who race to achieve 1st rank or get into the merit list, most of the students struggle to get the passing marks.
The whole education system is debatable and needs great reform but recently CBSE has taken a decision to at least reduce the pressure on students.
Yes, the Central Board of Secondary Education on Tuesday introduced a new rule regarding the passing marks pattern of Class 10th. Earlier, the students had to score 33% marks in both practical and theory individually. However, from now on they will be declared as passed even if they score a total of 33 marks in both practical and theory.
However, this is just a one-time exemption for the current Class 10th batch and introduced because they will be the first batch after the Board exam made a comeback.
As per TOI reports, the current batch of Class 10th students will sit for the Board exam on March 5, which will be the first mandatory public exam after eight years.
This rule will also be implemented for the students with subjects under National Skills Qualifications Framework scheme for the five major subjects i.e. two languages, science, maths and social science.
