BSEB Compartment Result 2021: Bihar Board on Saturday, June 19 said that it will award 8 marks as 'grace marks' to the students who failed in class 10 and 12 board exams 2021. With this decision, Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) declares over two lakh students 'pass' in the Compartment exams. The decision to not hold Compartment exams this year is taken in view of the situation that erupted after the second wave of the COVID-19.

"Class 10 & Class 12 students who failed in 2 subjects will be given 8 marks as grace. With this, over 2 lakh students will be declared pass. The decision was taken because compartmental exams couldn't be conducted due to COVID," Bihar Education Minister Vijay Kumar Chaudhary said quoting ANI sources on Saturday.

Taking a jib at other state boards, Mr. Chaudhary further said that the decision to promote students by giving them grace marks is better than other education boards that still have not decided how to promote students.

Earlier, media reports confirmed that the Bihar Board would take the decision to promote class 10 and 12 students who failed in maximum of two subjects, due to Coronavirus. BSEB board is among a few who have completed board exams for class 10th and 12th this year.
