ICSE Class 10 Results: Passing Percent Better Than Pre-Pandemic Years
The pass rate for the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) Class 10 examination continued to be better than pre-pandemic years, with 99.97% of candidates passing the examination this year.
The results were announced on Sunday by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE). The pass percentage last year was 99.98%. However, the results were announced based on an alternative assessment system as exams could not be held due to the pandemic.
Also in 2020, exams had to be canceled halfway after a nationwide lockdown was announced to contain the spread of coronavirus. The council had not announced any merit lists in 2020 and 2021.
In 2019, the pass rate was 98.54% while in 2018, it was 98.51%. For the first time in the council’s history, CISCE held two exams in a single exam year for the 2021-22 academic session. While the first semester exams took place in November-December 2021, the second semester exams took place in April-May 2022 for classes 10 and 12.
Grades from both semesters were given the same weighting in calculating the final grade this year.
