According to a Government Resolution (GR) reissued this year,students of Std IX and XI have to get 25 per cent in theory to be eligible for grace marks.

Authorities from Bhavan’s College said as soon as the the state announced its decision,the results of the 289 students were reviewed and subsequently another 134 students were passed.
