CBSE’s examination committee with approval from the governing body has decided to issue a single certificate at secondary level examination combining the marksheet and certificate with effect from 2019. Separate document for marksheet and certificate of examination will continue for class 12 students. If a student appears for an improvement examination no separate pass certificate for that subject will be issued but only a separate statement of marks will be obtained.

From 2020 academic session compartment candidates will get three chances to appear for the exam and the practical marks shall be carried forward. The affiliation bye-laws have also been amended to incorporate the changes.
