CBSE has said that percentage i.e. aggregate marks will not be released in the results of class 10th and 12th board exams in 2024. Apart from this, division and distinction will also not be released along with the result from next year.

Test of practical knowledge

You will be allowed to carry and refer notes, books or any other study material during the examination. CBSE officials said that in the open book examination, the memorization ability of the students is not assessed, but the understanding of a subject or topic and its practical knowledge is tested. The examiners do not give marks to those answers which are written after looking at the book, rather marks are given to those answers which show the intelligence of the students.
