New Guidelines – Changes In Marking In CBSE 10th Board Exam

The buzzing news these days is all about revised marking system for class 10th students. Let’s simplify it a bit for you.

Class 10th syllabus as per CBSE guidelines comprises of 2 languages (generally English and Hindi) and 3 other subjects (Science, Mathematics and Social science).

As per old guidelines, which is applicable for 2017-2018 batch:

  1. Total marks = 80 marks (theory exam ) + 20 marks (practical exam)
  2. 33% of 80 marks i.e. 26.4 is required to pass theory exam.
  3. 33% of 20 marks i.e. 6.6 is required to pass the practical

Now for example, if you scored 3 marks in the practical exam and 30 marks in theory exam, the total becomes 33 but still, you don’t manage to pass the practical exam because as per the criteria, minimum of 6.6 is required to pass the practical exam of each subject.

As per new guidelines, which is applicable for 2018-2019 batch:

  1. Total marks = 80 marks (theory exam ) + 20 marks (practical exam)
  2. 33% of total marks are required to pass an exam.

So to pass an exam all you require is 33/100 in each subject no matter in which proportion. For example, you might have scored 3 marks in the practical exam and you managed to score 30 marks in theory exam, the total becomes 33, bingo you passed the subject.

Also, this criteria only stands for five mandatory subjects where theory and practical marks are distributed in 80 and 20 respectively. It does not stand for vocational/additional 6th or 7th subject in which marks are distributed in 50-50.

 

So yes after a long struggle, CBSE has managed to pass criteria where students might feel relieved and does not really need to go frenzy over passing marks.

Now the questions arise, whether this change is going to make any difference in a current scenario where students are burning the midnight oil to get in the race of being IITian for whom less than 95% does not mean anything?

Whether we need such revised norms or we need to work on relieving stress on the major population by cutting of competition these days?

Does current scenario, offers opportunities to students who pass the class 10th exam in different fields?

Whether the purpose of education is to pass the exam, score 99% or to inculcate knowledge so that it’s actually useful in the real world?

 

Maybe it’s high time for CBSE, IITs, AIIMS and other renowned names to understand that they need to collaborate together and bring up with more stress relieving criteria because students have become a lot smarter and these ‘revised’ norms do not make any huge difference.

But CONGRATULATIONS to class 10th students.
