CBSE Class 12 Results: Pass criteria

According to CBSE rules, a student will be eligible to get the Pass Certificate of the Board, if he/she gets a grade higher than E in all subjects of internal assessment unless he/she is exempted.

In order to be declared as having passed the class 12 examination, a candidate should obtain a grade higher than E (i.e. atleast 33% marks) in all the five subjects of external examination in the main or at the compartmental examinations.

The pass marks in each subject of external examination shall be 33%.

In case of a subject involving practical work a candidate must obtain 33% marks in theory and 33% marks in practical separately in addition to 33% marks in aggregate in order to qualify in that subject.

For instance, if the total marks in the theory paper of Chemistry is 70, then students need to score at least 23.1 in order to pass. If the total internal marks are 30, students need to score 9.9 in order to pass the internals/practicals. Overall, a student must score 33 out of a 100 marks in each subject so as to pass.

CBSE Class 12 Results: Grading

In addition to numerical scores, the Board shall indicate grades in the marks sheets issued to the candidates in case of subjects of external examinations. In case of internal assessment subjects, only grades shall be shown.

Letter grades on a nine-point scale shall be used for subjects of external examinations.

The grades shall be derived from scores in case of subjects of external examination. In case of subjects of internal assessment, they shall be awarded by the schools.


The assessment of Work Experience, Art Education and Physical and Health Education will be graded. Both the internal and practical marks for all subjects will be assigned one of the following grades— A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2, D1, D2 and E.

A1 – Top 1/8th of the passed candidates
A2 – Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
B1 – Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
B2 – Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
C1 – Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
C2 – Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
D1 – Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
D2 – Next 1/8th of the passed candidates
E – Failed candidates

The “E” grade means that the candidate has scored below 33 per cent. To clear the subject, students need a higher grade than E.


The students who have scored among the top 1 per cent of all the candidates will be awarded “Merit Certificates”. This will be calculated by rounding the number of candidates who appear for the subject to the nearest 1000. In case of a tie, all candidates who have scored the same will be awarded the merit certificate.


Students who fail up to two subjects can appear for Compartment exams which are held in the months of July an August. Candidates will be declared as “Passed” if they manage to clear the subject during the compartment exams. Those who fail the compartments will be deemed as “failed” and can appear for all subjects again the following year.

To be eligible for the compartment exams, students should have cleared the internal assessment of the subject and should not have failed more than two subjects in the board exams. Students will have the option to either appear for internal and practical marks again or can retain the marks from the previous year.


To appear for the improvement papers candidates are required to have passed the subject during the March board exams. Students can appear for improvement in more than one of the main subjects. Students who have appeared for the March exams through the Vocational stream may appear for the improvement paper the following year. Provided that he/she has not pursued higher education during the time, a student under the vocational stream can appear as private candidates. No one will be allowed to appear for an improvement paper more than once.
