 It is to be noticed that on 15th June ICSE has given a decision to allow class 10 and class 12 students to appear for the ICSE board exam in an optional manner.

  • Alhough ICSE has given a similar decision as CBSE, to cancel the Classes 10 and 12 board examination, they have cleared that their methodology of marks assessment for the pending exams will be different from the methodology submitted by CBSE.

It means that they are not going to allot marks on the remaining exams on the basis of average of the marks of best 3 performing subjects, as per the affidavit submitted by CBSE.
