Pass percentage

The major difference in the pass percentage was already expected due to the change in the pass mark criteria for this batch. As per the revision, a student has to secure at least 33% marks in total (internal assessment and board exams taken together) in order to pass the exam. However, the expectation was that the pass percentage will increase, but seems a complete different scenario here.

Typing Errors, 2 marks given to each candidate

It was reported that there was a typing error in Class 10th English paper. Hence, the Board decided to give two marks to all those students who had appeared for the paper.

Easier Ways To Check Result 

Unlike past few years, this year the candidates have a major advantage as they are given so many facilities to check their result. Two new result hosting options have been introduced this year, Google’s partnership with CBSE and Microsoft’s SMS Organizer App. The students can easily use these two options to check their result. It was expected that the CBSE Resutl to be hosted by Google shall remain live for a short period of time, however,  it was live for more than 1 hour on May 26 for Class 12th result.
