The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had last month decided to mention grace marks on the marksheets besides scrapping the moderation policy.

However, after the board decided to continue with the moderation policy following the intervention of the Delhi High Court, the CBSE has decided to revoke the decision on mentioning of grace marks decision.

"We have decided not to mention the grace marks on the marksheets as resolved earlier," a senior CBSE official said.

A few states had at the time of decision expressed apprehension over marksheets reflecting grace marks, saying it could perceived as a stigma. Others, however, argued that would be unfair for those who passed without the extra marks.

The Board on Sunday announced results of Class XII which registered a dip of over one percent in the overall CBSE pass percentage.
