How CBSE Grading System Works?

in: India

School GirlNow the CBSE Board exams for 10th students have been made optional from the academic year 2010-11. Also, a new system of evaluation is introduced which is known as Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE). In CCE we will have two parts. 1. Formative Assessment, 2. Summative Assessment. Formative assessment will evaluate and grade the class work, home work, other assignments and projects. There will be 2 formative assessment each in the first and second terms. Each assessment will consist of 10 marks. Summative Assessment will be based on the end-term examinations. There will be one end-term examination for each term. The first end-term examination will consist of 20 marks whereas the second term examination will carry 40 marks.

The percentage system is no more. CBSE has come up with a new grading system. Class 9th and 10th students will be evaluated on a 9 point grading system. Each grade will be given on the basis of above-discussed formative and summative assessments. HRD minister Kapil Sibal has claimed that this move will revolutionise the school education system in India. However the experts are saying that the grading system’s main aim to reduce pressure on students. Government has made Class X exams option but what about other exams, like Class 12, graduation etc. Suppose if the students choose to skip the class 10 exams, they have to take their Class 12 board exams. Also, we will have rat-race for A1 grade in schools. I don’t know what the meaning of D grade. Will it be equivalent to FAIL?

 

Grade Marks
A1 95 and above
A2 90 to 94
A3 85 to 89
B1 80 to 84
B2 70 to 79
C1 60 to 69
C2 50 to 59
C3 33 to 49
D Lees than 33

    this is not a good thing .there is no difference between those students who got either 100 either 99 either 98, 95
    this leads to go down competetions between the students

    Board should have to change the grading system before exams.
    That could student prepare more good.
    Or only A1,A2, Should apply for 90 to 100.
    And B1 is 80 to 89.
