Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is going to declare the much-awaited class 10th result 2020 on June 15, 2020. As a welcome move amidst all the negatively happening across the globe, the CBSE board has omitted the word ‘Fail’ from the mark sheet of the students. CBSE has decided to remove the words like ‘fail’ and ‘compartmental’ from class 10th, 12th mark sheets to reduce the mental burden on the students.
Board exam results are anyway more stressful and when on the mark sheet it is printed ‘FAIL’ or ‘COMPARTMENTAL’, it put a lasting impact on the mental health of the students. Hence, to lessen the burden of the students from these ruthless words, CBSE board on February decided to replace them with more apt words. The mark sheet and scorecard for CBSE class 10th and 12th will have a few new and few old abbreviations like RT, RW, RL, P, C, etc.
What is the meaning of RT? It stands for Repeat Theory. To be declared as qualified, students need to pass both theory and practical exams. If in the mark sheet, it RT is specified then a student will need to appear for the theory paper during the compartment exam. However, for class 10th exam, they will be passed based on the cumulative score in theory and practical, this abbreviation would not be available on CBSE class 10th mark sheet.
What is the meaning of RW? This stands for Result withheld. This may happen due to any reason like technical error, use of unfair means, etc. Clarity regarding declaration of the result of the subject would be shared with the student in a separate communication.
