CBSE Class IX X pass norms changed
Changing its norms for Class IX and X, CBSE has made it clear that from now on, students from classes IX and X will have to mandatorily appear for the two Summative Assessments (SA) and pass 25% percentage of marks.
This was decided in an annual meeting of the CBSE exam committee.
These rules will be effective for class IX students from the 2013-14 academic year while for class X students, the rules will be effective from 2014-15.
To ensure that students don’t take their exams lightly CBSE has endorsed that if a student could not take a SA, the school had to hold another exam for him/her.
Students of classes IX and X have to take four Formative Assessment (FA) and two SA exams. The FA is the school’s responsibility and papers are checked at schools itself. But question papers for the two SAs exams are sent by the board and papers are checked by the board.
Only those who participate in sports at the national/international level will be exempted from appearing for any one of the SA exams, provided that the student seeks permission in advance.
Moreover, students will have to score at least 25% marks in both SA exams, in order to pass. This means that students will have to score at least 15 out of 60 marks and a total of 33% in each of the five subjects.
