New Delhi: The CBSE Board has changed the pass mark pattern for all subjects. In a recently issued circular the pass mark criteria has been changed and clearly specified.
According to the new circular, the requisite to pass the 10th standard is to score 33 percent marks in practical and theory in each subject.
For 12th standard however, students have to get 33 percent marks in practical, theory and internal assessment separately. In 12th boards, it will be mandatory to score 23 marks in a subject of 70 marks and 26 marks in a subject of 80 marks.
In subjects which do not practicals, internal assessments will be taken from this time. The examination for subjects like Hindi, English, Mathematics etc. will be of 100 marks.
An internal assessment of 20 marks will be done in which, 6 marks have to be obtained.
According to the board, information about the new pattern has been sent to all the schools.

CBSE has instructed all schools to conduct 10th and 12th pre-board examinations from December 16 to 30, for the pre-board examination, the board has already released the time table.
