CBSE follows standard passing criteria where a student has 5 main subjects (having 20 marks as internal assessment and board examination of 80 marks) where he/she has to separately score a minimum of 33% in the practicals and theoretical board exam. A score of 33% applies to additional subjects like 6th or 7th subjects also.

Students of class X are evaluated on a 9-point grading system. Each grade, given on the basis of both formative and summative assessments, will correspond to a range of marks. The nine-point grading scale is given below:
