Board exams for class 10 and 12 are fast approaching. With just a few months to go, the government has announced major changes recently in the pass percentage for the students. This seems to have been done with the motive of encouraging them to prepare even if they had not worked hard all over the year. A number of states like Telangana, Tamilnadu, Gujarat, Karnataka and even the central boards have made remarkable changes in the cutoff. Here's a look at the different board exam pass percentage:
|S.NO||BOARD||CLASS 10 %||CLASS 12 %|
|3||Telangana State Board||35||35|
|4||Gujarat State Board||33||33|
|5||Kerala State Board||30||30|
|7||Tamilnadu State Board||35||40|
|8||West Bengal (WBCHSE)||30||30|
There are conditions within the pass category marks that candidates are advised to go through before implicitly working on the overall percentage. Some boards expect the stipulated marks in every subject in order to be eligible to be marked as passed. Also, in case students would like to appear for improvement exams, the minimum marks required to do it also differs. So candidates are advised to refer to the respective government websites in this regard to know the full details about the marking system.

Even though the cut off percentage mentioned is just the minimum pass percentage, students are expected to be encouraged and aim to ace the exam than just pass it. If you aim for the skies, at least you could touch the roof. However, there is life beyond exams.
