CBSE will not award overall division, distinction, aggregate percentage in Board Exams 2024


In the upcoming 2024 Class 10 and Class 12 board exams, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced that it will not assign overall divisions, distinctions, or aggregate percentages to students. The board will not calculate or disclose the percentage of marks obtained by the students. This decision follows numerous requests from candidates seeking clarity on the criteria for percentage calculation.

Furthermore, if a student has taken more than five subjects in the board exams, the responsibility of determining the best five subjects will rest with the admitting institutes or employers recruiting CBSE board students. In cases where the percentage of marks is necessary for higher education or employment, the calculating process, if any, can be carried out by the respective admitting institution or employer.

For the academic session of 2023-24, the CBSE will conduct practical exams, project works, and internal assessments for Class 10 and Class 12 from January 1, 2024, across all CBSE-affiliated schools in India and abroad. The theory exams for CBSE will commence on February 15, 2024, with the complete date sheet yet to be released.
