Understanding CBSE’s New Grade System: Calculating 10th-12th Board Results Without Marks
CBSE Grade System & What is CGPA: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided not to release aggregate marks or divisions or distinction in the 10th and 12th board results by abolishing the traditional grading system. Now, only CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) or grade points will be given in the CBSE results.
Why is CBSE’s age-old ‘practice’ ending?
CBSE Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj says that the board has decided to bring in a grading point system instead of aggregate marks in the 10th-12th board results to avoid unhealthy competition.
Instead of adding up the marks of all the subjects and calculating the percentage to calculate the result, the focus will now be on the performance of the students in each subject, from which CGPA will be calculated.
This will improve the performance of children and reduce the pressure of the result. Earlier, the board had not released the merit list of CBSE 10th and 12th results to reduce the pressure of the result. Apart from this, the announcement of toppers was also not made.
What is CGPA?
There will be many students and parents who will know very little about CGPA, due to which they may have difficulty in calculating the board result now. Let us first understand what CGPA is.
CGPA is Cumulative Grade Points Average, which is the average of grade marks obtained by a student in all subjects except six additional subjects. A grade point average (GPA) is calculated for each subject for the student, which includes internal tests and grade points are given according to the range of marks.
How to calculate CGPA of CBSE marks?
In the CBSE 10th-12th board results from now on, your CGPA will come out by dividing the total of subject-wise grade points given by 5 (best five subjects). Like-
|Grade point (GP)
|40/5 = 8.0
How will admission be done on the basis of CGPA?
CBSE has said that if higher education institutes or employers need the percentage of students’ marks for employment, they can calculate the percentage by calculating the CGPA themselves. To calculate CGPA, they will have to use the grade points of the top 5 subjects.
How will the percentage come out from the grading points?
To calculate the percentage from CBSE grading points, the subject-wise points will have to be multiplied by 9.5. You can check the example given below to understand it subject-wise.
