The schools affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education follow the complete guidelines of CBSE, which include the syllabus, exam pattern, curriculum and promotion rules. The rules for Class 9 promotions according to CBSE are given below.
As per the new CBSE guidelines, the students of Class 9 have to score a minimum of 25% marks in the submissive assessments (SA) to be eligible for promotion to Class 10. Apart from the 25% marks, the students also need to maintain a minimum attendance. In case a student fails to sit for the exam due to any health problem has to appear for the exam in a stipulated amount of time.
It should be noted that the students failing to obtain the required score will be allowed one subsequent attempt; failing again would have to repeat the same class, and the promotion would be halted.
