Grace Marks by CBSE 

After the upload of theory and internal assessment marks, board will compute the result. During this computation, if a candidate is not getting qualifying marks, CBSE will follow its policy of awarding grace marks.  


Will CBSE Fail Class 10 Students in 2021? 

You must be aware of the fact that CBSE has said goodbye to the dreaded term “Fail” in Class 10. Instead, they prefer to use “Essential Repeat” or “Compartment” Category. 


If a student fails to cross the passing line i.e., he does not get pass marks in any subject, even after the following of grace marks policy by the board, he will be placed in “Essential Repeat” or “Compartment” Category. 


CBSE Class 10 Compartment Examination 2021 

According to the guideline released by CBSE, after the declaration of result, objective type online or offline Compartment Examination will be conducted by school based on Sample Question Papers provided by the board. 


In case, a student is not able to clear board exam, he is allowed to continue in Class 11 till the declaration of compartment examination result by CBSE. 



Meanwhile CBSE has also allowed Basic Maths students to opt for Mathematics in Class 11 without appearing in compartment examination. But this provision is only for this year.
