The decision to award grace marks was finalized after approval from the state government. The decision has been taken after an alarming number of students filed in the intermediate exam results which were announced on May 30. Only 30.11 per cent students managed to pass in the intermediate exam 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.
In view of the intermediate result fiasco, the board has decided to award 8 marks to students who fail in one subject and 4 marks in each subject to those who fail in two subjects as grace marks.
