ISC, ICSE result 2020

CISCE announced results for class 10 and 12 exams in July but decided against bringing out a merit list this year because of "exceptional circumstances".

While the board recorded a pass percentage of 99.34 per cent for class 10 exams, up by 0.8 per cent from last year, the pass percentage for the class 12 exams stood at 96.84 per cent, recording a marginal increase.

The board had to cancel its pending exams given the spike in coronavirus cases and the result was calculated based on an alternate assessment scheme decided by it.

Under the scheme, candidates were assessed based on the best three percentage marks obtained in subjects for which board exams were conducted. The marks of their internal assessment as well as project work were taken into account.

The exams, which were earlier postponed due to the lockdown to contain the spread of coronavirus, were scheduled to be conducted from July 1 to 14.

The CISCE had later announced that class 10 and 12 students can choose not to appear for the pending board exams and be marked as per their performance in pre-board exams or internal assessment. However, the exams were cancelled given the spike in Covid-19 cases.
