In a move to lessen the post-result mental pressure for not performing well, CBSE removed the term 'Fail' from its result documents and replaced it with 'Essential Repeat'.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has not used the term “fail” in the mark sheets, and instead replaced it with “essential repeat.” The Board decided upon this alternative term in February as they intended not to put excess pressure on the students during this time of pandemic. This move is in place to lessen the post-result mental pressure for not performing well.
CBSE had previously urged all school principals and regional offices to decide and suggest a few alternative terms for “failed” and “compartmental.” Some of the suggestions for the replacement of the word “compartmental” were “special exam”, “second exam” whereas for “ failed” were “unqualified” or “not qualified.”
The term “failed” has been altered with “essential repeat”' however, there has been no change for the term “compartmental.”
This is the first time the Board used gone soft on the terminology, and has not declared the merit list for CBSE class 12 result 2020.
The CBSE class 12 results were declared on July 13, and the pass percentage has stood to 88.78 per cent, which is 5.38 percent higher than the previous year. This time around, girls have outdone the boys by a 5.96 percent higher pass percentage.
