CBSE to award marks, grades for Class X
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will award both marks and grades to Class X students in the board examinations to be held from 2018. The board will conduct examinations for a total of 80 marks in each subject and the respective schools will hold internal assessment of students for the remaining 20 marks in each subject.

In each of the two examinations, the students will have to secure at least 33%. “The board will conduct Class X examination for 80 marks in each subject covering 100% syllabus of the subject of Class X only. Marks and grades both will be awarded for individual subjects,” the CBSE said on Wednesday, notifying the “remodelled” format of the board examinations for Class X students. The students will get a nine-point grading as the CBSE awards Class XII students, it said.

Under a scheme for internal assessment, the schools will conduct periodic written tests for each of the subjects. The schools will hold a total of three written tests for each subject in an academic year. Out of 20, a total of 10 marks will be allocated to these tests. Average of the best two of the period tests will be taken for final marks submission.
