will be 33% and it will be 35% for ISC exam or Class 12. CISCE has considered undertaking such changes going at par with other boards in the country.
'The objective of this is to bring about a close conformity with other Boards in the country,' CISCE said in a notification. The Council had, then, decided to
implement the changes from 2019 academic year onwards.
