2 weeks ago

CBSE Board Exams for classes 10 and 12 will begin on February 15, 2024, while the practical exams for both classes are slated to begin on January 1, 2024. 

Here is a look at the main decisions made by the board this year, ahead of the board exams:

CBSE board exam marking schedule

The CBSE released the exam marking schedule for both the theory and practical portions of the board exams for classes 10 and 12. 

According to the plan, each subject may receive up to 100 marks, which are divided among the components of theoretical, practical, project, and internal assessment. For classes 10 and 12, the marking scheme is provided for 83 courses and 121 courses, respectively.

Two board exams

In an effort to assist students in raising their test results, the Center intends to conduct two board exams this year. The choice will assist the pupils in keeping their highest exam scores.  In addition, to give students two opportunities in a year, this move is part of a larger initiative to improve education in general. 

Extracurricular activity-related special provisions

The CBSE instituted a special provision for students participating in sports and Olympiads. To encourage pupils to take tests, the board will administer special exams to them. Exam dates for these students will coincide with their Olympiad schedules and with national and international sporting events.

No divisional or distinguished award is given to students

CBSE previously state that it would not be releasing a list of merit for the class 10 and 12 board exam results, but this year the board also made the decision to not give any division or distinction to any of the students.  Furthermore, the admitting college will be the only one to determine which five subjects are the best for determining the students’ grades.


The school, the internal examiner, and the external examiner, as applicable, must make sure that the right marks are uploaded during the upload process since once the marks are uploaded, they cannot be changed.

In accordance with instructions released by the CBSE, schools and examiners must consider the maximum marks allotted for practical, project, and internal assessments while awarding or uploading marks.
