There is an essential piece of information for CBSE class 10th students. According to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) rule, If a student fails in any of the three elective subjects – Science, Mathematics, and Social Science, then the failed subject will be replaced by the ‘Skill Subject’ that is offered as a 6th additional subject. Hence, as per this policy, those who fail in a subject in the board exams, will not have to repeat a year.
After this, the class 10 board exam result will be calculated based on the marks obtained in the best of five subjects. This decision by CBSE is well appreciated and welcomed by students, parents, and teachers alike. Many students used to fail in the board examination being weak in one subject which used to result in wastage of their year of education.
The interest of the students in skill-based Learning Program has increased year after year. In the year 2020, there were about 20 per cent of the students who chose skill-based subjects, whereas the percentage went up to 30 per cent in 2021. The trend for skill based learning has shifted in the recent year and even if there is no good in bookish studies, the student will not be harmed anyway.
The report card will not only highlight the merit-based performance of students but will also give feedback regarding cognitive social, emotional, and practical skills gained by students. The board will focus on capacity building and standardized criteria with a global benchmark.Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, Education Minister

Due to coronavirus outbreak, the board has reduced the examination syllabus by up to 30 per cent. Hence, the students who are going to appear for the upcoming board exams will only have to study the revised syllabus as the questions will only be asked from that portion.
