The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will declare the results of the class X board examinations on Tuesday.

Over 16 lakh CBSE school students of class X registered for the board examinations held by the CBSE from March 5 to April 4.

“Results of CBSE class 10 examinations for 2017-18 to be declared by 4 pm on 29th of May, 2018 (sic),” tweeted Anil Swarup, the school education secretary under the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD).

Parents and students are anxiously waiting for the results as the this is the first batch of the CBSE which took compulsory board examinations after a gap of eight years.

The CBSE re-introduced the compulsory board examinations for all students of class X with the approval of the MHRD in view of various reports and states claiming that the students were not taking adequate interest in their studies since the board examinations were made optional.

The board examinations, held by the CBSE for classes X and XII, saw claims of a paper leak. Taking cognisance of some of the claims, the CBSE announced retest for the economics paper of class XII and mathematics paper for class X.

The board, however, later decided not to conduct re-examination for class X mathematics paper. The board conducted a re-test for the economics paper of class XII only.

Ahead of the board examinations for class X, the CBSE relaxed the passing mark criteria for this year in view of the students of the 2017-18 batch taking compulsory board examinations for the first time.

The board exempted these students from mandatory requirement of separately securing a minimum of 33% marks in each of their five subjects in the school-based assessment and the board examinations in order to be declared passed.

As a “one-time measure,” the class X students were also exempted from mandatory separate pass criteria norms in additional subjects, provided these subjects comprises internal assessment of 20 marks and the board examinations of 80 marks.

In a notification on January 31 last year, the board had made it mandatory for all class X students to separately secure a minimum 33% score in each of their subjects in the internal examination, to be conducted by the schools at their level, and the board examinations, to be conducted by the CBSE.
