Students to give CBSE Class 10 exams from next year, the board to implement three-language formula

Students of Class 9 in CBSE affiliated schools will have to appear in the board exams next year. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced on Wednesday that board examination are compulsory.

The board further said that for students appearing for their class 10 board exams this year the schemes I and II will stand discontinued. CBSE released a notification in which it states that the nine-point grading will be similar to what is followed by the Class 12 boards. The exams will be conducted for 80 marks per subject.


In the final submission, the average of the best two tests conducted in the academic year will be taken into account. Two mandatory language papers and one optional sixth subject will be there. Students can also take a third language.

The board had previously decided to recommend that the three language system- under which Hindi, English and a modern Indian language are taught- to be extended to class 9 and 10 as well from current 6 and 8.

The schools will conduct the practicals for the additional subjects. A majority of the 18,000 institutions affiliated to the CBSE offer the mother tongue or Hindi, English and a foreign language such as German and Mandarin up to Class 8.

Now, all the schools will have to implement the three-language formula and extend it up to Class 10.
