Q5. What is the passing criteria for CBSE Class 10?
As per the existing guidelines, students of CBSE Class 10 need to score a minimum of 33 per cent marks (individually and in aggregate) to be declared pass in the board examination. The 33 per cent marks include the internal assessment score as well as the external assessment score. The marks would be counted cumulative and not individually.
Also, students have to pass in a total of 5 subjects to be awarded pass. For students who have appeared in a total of 5 papers, they must get 33% or more in all the five subjects. In case a student fails in one subject – he/she can appear for that subject during compartment examinations.
For a student who appears in 6 subjects (5 main and 1 skill subject), in case the student fails in one subject but passes in the skill subject, he/she would be promoted to next class. Such a students, however, can appear for the examination as ‘improvement’, if he/she wishes to continue the subject in Class 11.

CBSE has cancelled all the remaining papers for Class 10 board examinations, that were scheduled between March 19 to March 31.

As for the main papers that were left for a few students of North East Delhi, CBSE has released a complete evaluation criteria. Students would be marked on the basis of the scores of the papers attempted.
Q8. If a student is not happy with the marks awarded for cancelled CBSE Class 10 exams, can he/she appear for the improvement later?
No. Marks awarded by CBSE for Class 10 cancelled papers would be considered as final. The board would not conduct any examination at a later date for the pending examinations for Class X students.
Q9. Does CBSE award Marks or Grades in Class 10?
CBSE would be awarding both marks and grades to the students. The mark sheet would have the cumulative marks scored by the students (out of 100, that includes internal marks and the marks awarded in theory examinations). The Grade would also be provided subject wise as per the guidelines. Also, the grades are awarded to the percentile rank of the marks scored by the students and not on the basis of the actual marks.
To explain it further, say the top marks in Science are 95 out of 100, then a student scoring 95 would be awarded A1. But, if the top marks scored in English are 84, then the A1 grade would be for 84 marks.
Q10. What is CGPA?
CGPA stands for Cumulative Grade Point Average. The method was used by CBSE under the CCE or Comprehensive Continuous Evaluation process. CGPA has been discarded since 2018. Students of Class 10 are now awarded marks.

CBSE issues the Migration Certificate and makes it available along with the mark sheet after the results are announced.
