The Gujarat Board SSC result pass percentage has not touched overall 70 per cent in recent years. Last year, not only the number of schools with 100 per cent pass percentage dropped as compared to 2018, but also, as many as 63 schools had no students clearing the class 10 Gujarat Board exams from them. This makes many students fear. With only a couple of hours left for the result declaration, here is a look at what it takes to pass the Gujarat Board SSC exam:
To pass in Gujarat Board class 10 or SSC exams, the students need to get 33 per cent marks in each of the subjects. In 2010, the board had lowered the pass marks for the board exams from 35 per cent to 33 per cent per subject.
Further, the question papers also have multiple-choice questions (MCQs) of 50 marks in each subject which are to be given 75 minutes, and further, the descriptive exam will be held in the second part. In addition to this, in descriptive exams, the board had announced then, questions worth 25 marks will be easy to score. These moves were introduced to improve the pass percentage of the Gujarat Board exams. It would be worth seeing whether or not the result this year is improved.
