Grading System for Class 12 - Merit Certificates
(a) The Board will award Merit Certificates in each subject to the top 0.1% of candidates passing that subject, provided that they have passed the examination as per the pass criteria of the Board at the Senior School Certificate Examination.
(b) The number of merit certificates in a subject will be determined by rounding off the number of candidates passing the subject to the nearest multiple of thousand. If the number of candidates passing a subject is less than 500, no merit certificate will be issued.
(c) In the matter of a tie, if one student gets a merit certificate, all candidates getting that score will get the merit certificate.
