The government is considering capping grace marks for SSLC and higher secondary examinations.
General Education Minister V. Sivankutty had earlier announced that grace marks would be allowed to students this year.
The order regarding the marks is expected to be issued soon by the General Education Department. It is likely that the grace marks will be largely restricted for both SSLC and higher secondary students. A maximum of 30 marks can be allowed as grace marks for a student. This will be limited even if the student is eligible for grace marks in more than one event.
