Grace Marks are granted only to those candidates who appeared in Classes 10th / 12th. After the declaration of the results, if a candidate fails in ONE or more papers and needs only three marks to get through in the whole Examination, then such a candidate is eligible for Grace Marks. A candidate is not eligible for grace marks if he needs three marks for passing one paper while he / she is failed in the remaining papers. Grace Marks are not added to the total marks. It is just a facility to pass a candidate who needs only three (3) marks to get through in the Examination.
