CBSE relaxes passing criteria for Class 10
The CBSE Class 10 exams were held this time after a gap of seven years. Considering related factors, the board has decided to relax passing criteria for the students. Now, they will have to get 33% marks overall to pass, instead of 33% separately in the final written test and internal assessments. Results are likely to be declared towards the end of May.

Here's how the new rule changes things
Now the board has eased conditions for students and made an overall 33% compulsory for passing.
"The current batch (with five main subjects) may be exempted from the mandatory separate pass criteria in subjects having component of 20-mark internals and 80-mark board examination."
However, this won't apply to subjects where internals carry 50 marks. In these, students will have to score 33% separately.
In the last few years, CBSE had adopted grading system
Till 2009, the Class 10 final exam was mandatory, but the HRD had made it optional in 2010-11. During this time, students had to score 33% in both internal assessments, which take place throughout the year, as well as the written exam in March. In most subjects, internals accounted for 20% of the total marks, while the written exam accounted for 80%.

New rules for specially-abled candidates too from this year
From this year, the CBSE has allowed specially-abled candidates to write their finals on computers/laptops. They were also allowed to have someone to read the question paper if they wanted. Specially-abled candidates get various facilities, like extra time in exams and question papers with enlarged fonts.
4,510 differently-abled children had registered for the Class 10 exams.
