Thirty three percent passing marks rule for Plus-II 1st year students compulsory from next year

Bhubaneswar:30/1/20: After a massive protest by the students, the state government has now revoked the decision and made the 33 percent passing marks rule for Plus-II 1st year students compulsory from next year.

This was informed by Odisha School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash today.

The School & Mass Education minister said “No 33% passing marks rule for Plus-II 1st year students this year.”

The minister further stated, mandatory 75% attendance for progress into 2nd year will also be not applicable this year. These rules will be implemented from next year, he added.

The minister, however, clarified that there will be no change in the examination pattern and the Colleges will send the marks of students to CHSE next year. Special provisions will be made for students who will fail to secure 33 % aggregate marks in all subjects, the minister added.

Earlier, the Board had mentioned that if a student fails in the first year exams, she/he will not be promoted to the second year. The students will have to qualify with 33 per cent marks in the examination.

It is pertinent to mention that so far first-year examination was considered a mock test wherein a student had to just appear in the examination to be considered qualified to jump to the second year.
