CBSE has decided not to award overall division, distinction, or aggregate marks to students appearing for Class 10 and Class 12 exams in 2024.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has made a major change regarding the results of the 10th and 12th examinations. Overall division, distinction, or aggregate marks will no longer be given in the results. Marks and percentages will also not be given. CBSE Controller of Examinations Sanyam Bhardwaj said that if a student has taken more than five subjects for the examination, then which will be the top subjects will be decided by the educational institutions offering admission for higher studies. Similarly, if any employing company wants to check the CBSE board result of the student, then it can make the decision based on the marks of five or more subjects. CBSE will not provide information about divisions and distinctions to higher educational institutions or companies.
According to the notification issued by CBSE, the new rules will apply to the examinations of 2024. CBSE had announced not to release the merit list and division-wise marks after the results of 2022. The board will conduct practical examinations for classes 10th and 12th for the academic session 2023-24 from January 1, 2024, for all CBSE-affiliated schools in the country and abroad.
CBSE main examinations for classes 10th and 12th will start on February 15 and will continue till April. Although the board has not specified the date of release of the datesheet, it is likely to be released this week itself. After the release of the datesheet, the board will probably release the admit card by January 10.
Many changes are being made to implement the New Education Policy 2020. The new rules of CBSE will reduce the pressure on board exam candidates regarding results and they will be able to prepare for the exam in a better way. The increasing cut-throat competition among children will also be curbed.
