Combined Certificate for Classes IX and X this year
Combined CBSE Certificate
This year, Class-X students taking the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) exams will get certificates listing their results for both classes IX and class X. This includes students who have opted for the Board-based summative assessment II (SA-II) as well as those taking the school-based SA-II, who will also get their results on the same day in May.
The Board, for the first time since the implementation of the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) scheme, has asked schools to frame their own datesheet for Class X. The results of all schools will, however, be announced by the CBSE only after data of all formative assessments and summative assessments from all schools are received.
The CCE certificates will have grades and grade points in different subjects and co-scholastic areas for both classes. No marks will be disclosed.
Schools evaluated students of classes IX and X throughout the year. The two terms carry a weightage of 40 and 60.
Class X students who opted for the Board-based SA-II took their exams starting March 1; students who sat for the school-based SA-II began March 15 onwards.
The CBSE has also discontinued the practice of declaring compartmentals or failing students. Candidates will, however, have to obtain grades of D and above in all subjects, excluding the additional subjects, to be awarded the qualifying certificate.
The combined certificate will help students know their Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) in each subject.
