This year, no one FAILed the CBSE exams!
CBSE declared the class XII and X results this week. This year, the way marks were assessed was different from all the previous years due to covid-19, but there was one change that CBSE opted for by choice. And this is the change for which everyone is lauding the board.
Starting this year, CBSE has decided to replace the term ‘FAIL’ by the term ‘Essential Repeat’. Announcing this, the board said, “Hence, in the result declared, no ‘FAIL ‘ term will be mentioned in the documents issued to the candidates and the result hosted on the website.”
It does not mean that students who are marked as ‘Essential Repeat’ will not have to repeat their year. They will have to study again for their exams to clear the class. But using the term ‘Fail’ is believed to have had negative impact on students. Many even considered it demeaning. Hence, the board’s decision to replace it with a more positive word is seen as a welcome step.
