Students with less than 75 per cent attendance will not be allowed to sit in CBSE exams for class X and XII.
The CBSE has directed all schools to calculate attendance of students. This has come into effect already.
The CBSE board exams will commence from February 15. Admit cards will be released only for students who are eligible by all means including that of mandatory attendance.
If a candidate has a genuine reason behind the shortage of attendance, they will have to submit the supporting documents. The documents will have to be submitted by January 7. As per the circular, no case will be considered post the deadline. All the standard operating procedures for calculation of attendance will have to be followed.
Several new methods will kick in the CBSE board exams from 2020 including two-level maths to a lesser number of questions.
The question paper will also have 33 per cent options. There will be more questions on higher-order thinking skills in comparison to questions based on rote learning.
The theory exams will be for 80 marks. Internal assessment will amount to 20 marks in total in subjects where there is no practical assessment.
