CISCE Passing Marks 2023: What Is The ISC, ICSE Criteria

CISCE Passing Marks 2023: Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) determines the ICSE / ISC Passing rules for class 10 /12 examinations. The minimum marks required to pass are called ICSE / ISC passing marks for Class 10 / 12 . But 2021-22 is semester-wise exam hence we explain how marks calculated.

CISCE passing marks 2023:

 From the year of 2018, the board has decreased the passing marks. Earlier, it was 35%. But now, According press release passing marks in ICSE class 10 2022 are 33% only while passing marks in ISC class 12 for 2022 are 35% only . So, students securing at least 33% in ICSE and 35% in ISC of total marks are declared as pass in CISCE exam.

ICSE Passing Criteria 2023:

The pass certificate of the ICSE board will be awarded to the students who have appeared for six subjects examination and have achieved the passing marks in ICSE class 10th 2022 in at least 5 subjects in ICSE result 2022. So, best 5 of 6 subjects apply in ICSE board. But, these 5 subjects must include ‘English’ subject.

ISC Passing Criteria 2023:

The pass certificate of the ISC board will be awarded to the students who have appeared for Five subjects examination and have achieved the passing marks in ISC class 12th 2022 in at least 4 subjects in ISC result 2022. So, best 4 of 5 subjects apply in ISC board. But, these 4 subjects must include ‘English’ subject

Who can appear for ICSE / ISC compartment exams in Class 10?

Students who are unable to get a pass certificate and have got PCNA (Pass Certificate Not Awarded) in the current ICSE /ISC exam year are eligible to for Compartment board exams. However, he/she must be passed in English and three more subjects to be eligible.

How Marks Calculated in CISCE:

1. To compute any average, convert all marks to percentage scores.
2. For candidates who were registered to appear for improvement of marks but have not been able to appear for any paper, their paper board percentage marks should be obtained by replacing A in the formula given in 1 (a) by their previously obtained percentage marks in the last board paper of that subject taken by them.

Example 1: For a paper with 20% marks allocated for internal marks and 80% for external marks:

(For example, Geography, Biology, Economics and Hindi):

Suppose for a candidate the average marks of the best three board papers (A) = 75 (out of 80)
Internal Assessment in the paper = 19 out of 20
Predicted percentage board marks in the paper = 0.7 × 75 × (100/80) + 0.3 × 19 × (100/20) = 94.125
Predicted board marks in the paper = 94.125 × 0.8 = 75.3
Final marks in the paper = 75.3 + 19 = 94.3

Example 2: For a paper with 20% marks allocated for internal marks and 80% for external marks:

(For example, Geography, Biology, Economics and Hindi):
Suppose for a candidate the average marks of the best three board papers (A) = 60 (out of 80)
Internal Assessment in the paper = 17 out of 20
Predicted percentage board marks in the paper = 0.7 × 60 × (100/80) + 0.3 × 17 × (100/20) = 78
Predicted board marks in the paper = 78 × 0.8 = 62.4
Final marks in the paper = 62.4 + 17 = 79.4

Example 3: For a paper with 20% marks allocated for internal marks and 80% for external marks:

(For example Geography, Biology, Economics and Hindi):
Suppose for a candidate the average marks of the best three board papers (A) = 40 (out of 80)
Internal Assessment in the paper = 15 out of 20
Predicted percentage board marks in the paper = 0.7 × 40 × (100/80) + 0.3 × 15 × (100/20) = 57.5
Predicted board marks in the paper = 57.5 × 0.8 = 46
Final marks in the paper = 46 + 15 = 61

Example 4: For a subject with 100% marks allocated for internal marks and 100% for external marks: (For example: Physical Education, Computer Applications, Economic
Applications, Commercial Applications, Environmental Applications, …. Etc. – All
Group III Papers):
Suppose for a candidate the average marks of the best three subjects (A) = 70 (out of 80) = 87.5 (out of 100)
Internal Assessment in the paper = 100 out of 100
Predicted percentage board marks in the paper

= 0.7 × 87.5 × 1 + 0.3 × 100 × 1 = 91.25
Predicted board marks in the paper = 91.25 × 1 = 91.25
Final marks in the paper = (91.25 + 100)/2 = 95.63
