About CBSE Class 10th
After the Class 10 Term-1 results were declared many students were really disappointed. Students were unhappy with the lower than expected marks and this had made the stakeholders ask the schools to lower Class 10 Term-1 weightage. As per the current Class 10 Result calculation pattern decided by CBSE, both Term 1 and Term 2 exams hold 50% weightage each.

Students also stated that the biggest challenge in the Term-1 exams was the language papers, where MCQs were even tougher than a subject like Maths.
Unhappy with their scores, students had even taken to social media soliciting CBSE to lower the weightage of the Term 1 test papers. The notification claims that for the final results, 30% of weightage will be from term 1 exams and the remaining 70% will be from term 2 exams. However, the board has denied it.
