The revised list of assessment for class 10 and class 12 exams has been released by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). According to the new list, the student must clear each section of assessment for the subject. Every subject has two to three assessment components, that is- theory and practice or project or internal assessment.
Students of class 10 and class 12 will have to pass each assessment separately by scoring 33 per cent marks, as per the latest CBSE circular. Mainly, the assessment is divided into theory and practical sections for most of the subjects. Whereas the practical carry 20 marks, and the theory is of 80 marks.
As per the 33 per cent rule where a student must ensure to score at least 33 per cent to pass, therefore, a student must score 26 marks in theory and in the internal assessment which is of 20 marks, a student must score 6 marks to pass. Hence, the six marks passing rule applies for assessment work as well.
Students do not need to score any minimum marks to pass for practical subjects that carry 30 marks. However, students will have to score 23 marks to pass in theory which carries 70 marks.
In CBSE, 2,25,143 candidates scored more than 90 per cent in class 10 and 57,256 students scored 95 per cent and above.
