Passing Marks Criteria with Examples in CS Executive & CS Professional Exams – a must read

 Passing Criteria in Company Secretary Exams

CS Executive

  1. Single Module – A student appearing in single module (any of two) needs to get at least 40 marks in each paper and aggregate of 50% marks in entire group.

CASE – I – EXEMPTION

  1. If a student fails to get 40% marks in each paper or 50% marks in aggregate, but gets 60% or more marks in any one or more papers, he will be exempted from appearing in that papers in which he got 60% or more marks.
  2. But to avail exemption under point (a) above, student must get at least 25% marks in other papers of that group.

 Frequently Asked Questions by students regarding Exemption in any Paper

  1. If Mr. A gets the marks in module I of CS Executive as follows:

Taxation : 62, Cost & Management A/c: 55, ECL: 58, Company Law: 28, what will be points regarding exemption?

Ans. In this case, Mr. A shall be exempted from appearing in Taxation exams in the further exams.

  1. Whether in the above example, Mr. A will be required to get remaining marks to get through the exams i.e 200-62 = 138?

Ans. My answer is no, in the remaining papers, he will have to get at least 40 marks in each paper but 50% marks in aggregate for remaining papers, for example if he gets 40 marks in costing, 52 marks in ECL and 46 marks in company law, now he has acquired total – 62+40+52+46 = 200 marks but he will be considered fail, because he has got at least 40 marks in the remaining papers but has failed to get 50% marks in aggregate. His marks in remaining papers are – 40+52+46 = 138 i.e 12 marks are short to clear the exams.

  1. Suppose in the question no. 1, Mr. A got 24 marks in company law, then would the answer in 1 will remain same?

Ans. No, he will not get any exemption, because to avail exemption, student must get at least 25 marks in the remaining papers, but he got 24 marks in company law, his exemption will lapse and will have to appear in entire group in the next exams.

CASE – II – EXEMPTION

  1. If Mr. A gets the marks in module I of CS Executive as follows:

Taxation : 68, Cost & Management A/c: 57, ECL: 55, Company Law: 28, what will be points regarding exemption?

Ans. – He is fail in Company Law Paper so will have to appear in this paper again, but bright side in this case is that if student get 60% or marks in remaining papers he will be exempted from all such remaining papers from appearing in subsequent exams, so in this case total marks in other three papers are – 68+57+55 = 180 , so aggregate in these three exams are 60%, so all these three papers would be exempt.

Both Modules

To get pass in the both modules, student must get at least 40 marks in each paper, and 50% marks in aggregate in both modules.

Different Situations when appeared in both groups simultaneously

  1. 1. Marks in 1st Module – 40+50+50+60 = 200, Marks in Module – II – 58 + 52, 40 = 150

Ans: Aggregate is 350 i.e 50%, and minimum marks in each paper is 40, so answer is pass.

  1. 2. Marks in 1st Module – 40+50+50+58 = 198, Marks in Module – II – 58 + 52, 42 = 152

Ans. Aggregate is 350 i.e 50%, and minimum marks in each paper is 40, so answer is pass. Noteworthy point in this case is that the student has got only 198 marks in module I , but has made up the deficiency of 2 marks from 2nd Module by getting 152 marks, This is greatest benefit of appearing in both modules.

  1. 3. Marks in 1st Module – 40+50+50+58 = 198, Marks in Module – II – 62 + 52, 38 = 152

Ans. Student is fail in both modules, even if he has got total 350 i.e 50% in aggregate, because he has got 38 marks in one paper of module II, he failed in IInd Module due to that benefit of 2 marks could not be transferred to module I.

 

CS PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM

Single Module

  1. Marks – 40+50+60= 150

Ans. Student is pass.

  1. Marks – 40+38+72 = 150

Ans. Fail, but exemption in third paper, now student will have to appear in only first two papers but will have to get at least 40 marks in both of these papers and aggregate 50% marks i.e 100.

Two Modules

  1. Module – I, Marks – 40+50+60 = 150 Marks, Module II – 40+50+58 = 148 Marks

Ans: Pass in first module but fail in second module.

  1. Module – I, Marks – 40+50+62 = 152 Marks, Module II – 40+50+58 = 148 Marks

Ans. Pass in first module but fail in second module, Noteworthy point is that aggregate becomes 50% marks, but benefit of extra marks is transferred only if students appears in all the three modules.

All Three Groups

  1. 1. Module – I, Marks – 40+50+62 = 152 Marks, Module II – 40+50+58 = 148 Marks, Module – III – 40+50+60 = 150

Ans. Student is pass in all groups , since he has got 40% marks in each paper and 50% in aggregate, in this case, benefit of extra 2 marks in module I is transferred to Module II, so student has been able to pass the exams. This is the major benefit of appearing in all modules.

  1. Module – I, Marks – 40+50+62 = 152 Marks, Module II – 40+50+58 = 148 Marks, Module – III – 38+50+62 = 150

Ans. Pass in only Module I, Fail in Module II & III, since he is unable to get at least 40 marks in each paper, he got 38 marks in 1st paper of Module III, he failed in IIIrd Module, so his benefit of 2 marks in Module I will not be transferred to Module II. Now he will have to avail at least 50 marks in remaining two papers in Module III & aggregate 50% marks in module II in the next Exams.
