The Council has notified that the internal assessment component measures a student’s proficiency of the student whereas the average marks in the best three subjects are a measure of their general academic ability. The new assessment has been designed in such a way that both General Academic Ability and Student’s proficiency can be tested. It has been developed after a thorough study of the previous year’s results and to ‘ensure fairness to all the candidates’ who appeared in the board examinations this year.
For ISC, the same formula is going to be used to calculate marks for the subjects Geography, Sociology, Psychology, Biology and Home Science. Whereas, the formula is slightly different for Elective English, and Art Paper.
From the year 2018 onwards, the Council changed the passing marks for ICSE (class 10th) and ISC (class 12th). The passing marks have been changed from 40 per cent to 35 per cent now. Hence to be declared as qualified, the students will need to obtain 35% marks in all subjects.
