The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is expected to declare the Class X examination results on May 30, 2018.
Earlier, speculations had been rife that the results for Class X will be announced alongside the Class XII results.
The Class X examination took place between March 5 to April 4 while the Class XII examinations were conducted from March 5 to April 13.
Meanwhile, ahead of the board results, the CBSE has made some changes in passing criteria for the Class X students from 2017-18 session.
The candidates of Class X board examination will now be exempted from mandatory separate pass criteria in the subjects, which have a component of 20 marks internal assessment and written examination of 80 marks, according to the notification released on 27 February 2018.
"That, the current batch i.e. the batch of class X, which is taking class X Examination in 2018 with five main subjects (having 20 marks as internal assessment component as per scheme of studies) may be exempted from the mandatory separate pass criteria in the subjects having component of 20 marks internal assessment and Board examination of 80 marks," the statement read.
So, the candidates just need to secure overall 33 percent marks i.e. internal assessment and written examination to qualify the CBSE Class 10th examination.
It will be a great relief for students since CBSE has exempted additional subjects from mandatory separate pass criteria norms.
Additionally, the board has extended the provision of replacement of subjects to National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF) students. Securing 33 percent in each subject (both Internal and board examination) has also made mandatory for the students.
The Examination Committee of the CBSE held a meeting on February 16, 2018 in Delhi to discuss the process. The move came after noting that the current batch (2017-18) has from a different assessment background.
