The CBSE candidate who fails in one of the five subjects of external examination are placed in compartment in that subject provided he/she qualifies in all the subjects of internal assessment. Compartment comes with a setback for students but there is a chance to appear for that subject again in the same year. So instead of worrying about it, one should get prepare for the compartment exam and qualify as a pass candidate.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is likely to release online the notification of Class 12 and Class 10 Compartment exams on its official website within a week or so. Every year the CBSE Compartment exams are held in July. Hence, most probably CBSE will release online the time table of Compartment Exams 2017 on its website in the next few days. The result for Class 12 board exams were declared on May 28 while the results of Class 10 were declared on June 02, 2017.
The candidates placed in compartment have the chance to reappear in the compartmental examination in the same year in the month of July. The candidates can avail the second chance in March/April and third chance in July of next year. The candidate will be declared ‘PASS’ provided he/she qualifies the compartmental subjects in which she had failed. Syllabi and Courses shall be the same as applicable for the candidates of full subjects appearing at the examination in the year concerned.
A candidate who fails to appear or fails at one or all the chances of compartment examination shall be treated to have failed in the examination and shall be required to reappear in all the subjects at the subsequent annual examination of the Board as per syllabi and courses laid down for the examination concerned in order to pass the examination.
CBSE conducts examination for all 5 subjects while other subjects are assessed internally by the Schools. A student will be given one paper each carrying 100 marks for 3 hours. However, in subjects requiring practical examination, there will be a theory paper and a practical examination as required in the syllabi and courses. For subjects involving practical work, in case the candidate has passed in practical at the main examination he/she shall appear only in theory part and previous practical marks will be carried forward and accounted for.
