CBSE will not be declaring a merit list in a bid to avoid unhealthy competition amongst the students. In that regard, the board will also not be awarding first, second or third division to students.
However, it will issue the merit certificate to 0.1 per cent of the students who have scored the highest marks in the subjects.
