NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be false.

Firstly, we searched for media reports on the same but did not find anything credible to support the claim.

We checked the official website of CBSE but did not find any notification regarding the same. We only found a press release about the tentative time frames for the upcoming board examination for classes 10th and 12th.

We also checked the website and social media accounts of the Ministry of Education but did not find any such notice.

We found a report by Akashwani News stating that the viral message passing percentage changing is false.

Moreover, we also found a tweet by PIB stating that the viral news is fake.

Hence, from the above information, it is clear that the viral news is fake.
