What is CBSE Marks Moderation Policy?
CBSE had last year in December requested MHRD to do away with the Marks Moderation Policy. In simple terms, the Marks Moderation Policy allowed grace marks to students who needed a few marks to pass in the exam and also allowed grace marks for difficult questions or erroneous questions asked in the exam. The policy had resulted in the increase in number of students who scored more than 95% marks in 12th board exam which also led to increase in cut off marks at major universities including University of Delhi.
CBSE had sought MHRD's help to develop a consensus among state boards as well on the marks moderation policy as it believed that a unilateral removal of marks moderation policy would put CBSE students at a disadvantage during college admission. MHRD had called a meeting with state education secretaries and chairmen of all state boards on April 24 to determine if the state boards should also discontinue the practice of grace marks.

Whatever be the final decision, the wait for students is not over yet. The result will not be declared today as predicted by many media outlets and forums. However, it is expected that CBSE will soon update about the result declaration date.
