CISCE Pass Criteria

New Delhi:
In a major decision for the ICSE Class 10 and ISC Class 12 students, the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) on Monday changed their passing criteria from the academic year beginning 2019.

The decision has been announced by the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) on its website.

According to the CISCE, the passing marks have been decreased for ICSE Class 10 and ISC Class 12 examinations from the existing 35% and 40%, but will come into effect from the academic term beginning in 2019.

"Among many recommendations made by the Inter-Board Working Group (IBWG), it was suggested that all boards in the country should have the same pass marks criteria," Gerry Arathoon, Chief Executive and Secretary of CISCE said in an official statement posted online.

"As per the new criteria, the pass marks for ICSE Class 10 exam would be 33% instead of the existing 35%.

"For the ISC Class 12 exam, the pass marks would be 35% instead of the existing 40%", the board said.

"The change in the pass marks for both the exams will be effective from the examination year 2019 onwards", the board said.

The council took the decision to revise pass marks after it held meetings with the Ministry of Human Resource Development and other examination boards where it was suggested that all boards in the country should have the same pass mark criteria.

The Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) conducts ISC Class 12 and ICSE Class 10 exams in the month of February and March every year. Thousands of students from India and abroad appear for these annual exams.
