This year, class 12 students will have the option to appear for the compartmental exam, in case they have failed in one or two exams. This was earlier available only for the class 10 students. Those who clear the compartmental exams will be deemed passed, however, students who fail in all subjects will not get a chance in form of compartmental exam.
