What is Essential Repeat in CBSE Board Exam Result 2020?

CBSE has declared the result of Class 12 and Class 10 Board Exam 2020. An interesting step taken by CBSE this time is that they have used the term “Essential Repeat” in the result of both classes. We will discuss in this post, What is Essential Repeat in CBSE Board Exam Result 2020?


What is Essential Repeat?


For the first time, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has used the term “Essential Repeat” in the result of Class 10 and Class 12 Board Exams 2020. CBSE has used it to replace the dreaded “Fail” from the result. It has decided to abandon the use of this “Fail” terminology which create unnecessary panic in the minds of students.


According to CBSE, “Fail” word in the result of Board Exam, is highly demotivating for students. Hence, the board has decided to do away with this term. And it will now use “Essential Repeat” replacing “Fail” in the result.


Difference between Fail and Essential Repeat


CBSE has used “Essential Repeat” to replace “Fail”. Hence, there is not much difference between the two terminologies. It is just that the board is not saying directly to a student that he has failed in the board examination. If a student in Class 12 with 5 main subjects fails in 2 or more subjects, his result bears “Essential Repeat”.



CBSE Class 10 students who have not secured passing marks in 3 subjects or more would see Essential Repeat in their result. Essentially, it means that a student has not secured passing marks in minimum subjects required to appear in compartment exam. And the student need to appear in the board examination again next year.


Looking at Corona Pandemic, some news agencies are saying that students with Essential Repeat will be given a chance to appear in all subjects in which they have not secured passing marks; when situation becomes conducive. But, CBSE is yet to confirm this news.

Without detailed guidelines from CBSE on Essential Repeat, it is fair to assume that students with Essential Repeat in their result have failed in their exam. They need to appear in all the subjects next year. Students with Essential Repeat cannot appear in compartment examination.


We will update this post if CBSE releases any contradictory explanation for Essential Repeat.
