From this year onwards, the Bihar Board has decided to grant eight grace marks to students to improve the overall pass percentage.
BSEB will grant eight marks to students who fail in one subject and four in each subject if the student fails in two subjects.
The board’s move came after an alarming number of students failed in intermediate exam results which were announced on May 30. There is a graph of only 30.11 per cent students who were managed to pass in the intermediate exams in science stream.
The pass percentage was not high in Arts stream either with only 37.1 per cent students passing the exam. The percentage was better for Commerce stream students, where 73.76 per cent students passed the exam.
Soon after the declaration of results, hundreds of students protested over the poor results in the intermediate exam. Also there were reports of suicides from some districts.
Among the protesting students were those who had cracked the coveted IIT-JEE Mains exam, one of the toughest entrance tests, but failed in Physics and Chemistry in the board exams.
In the wake of the protests, the BSEB decided to provide opportunities for scrutiny and compartmental examination to the aggrieved.
A compartmental examination has been scheduled for students, who failed, in the first week of July.
