"No overall division, distinction or aggregate of marks shall be awarded," Bhardwaj said in a release.
The board announced earlier that it was set to conduct the exams for the students of class 10 and 12 from 15 February.
"If a candidate has offered more than five subjects, the decision to determine the best five subjects may be taken by the admitting institution or employer," the CBSE official said in the release.
"Further, it is informed that the Board does not calculate/declare/ inform percentage of marks. If the percentage of marks is required for higher education or in employment the calculation if any, may be done by admitting institution or employer," the release said.
The information was announced in response to various persons who were questioning the criteria for calculating the percentage of the students in the board's examinations
