Board has introduced Grading at Secondary School level for Classes IX and X from the academic year 2009-10. (Circular No 40/29-09-2009).
In this system, students’ performance has been assessed using conventional numerical marking mode, and the same has been be converted into the grades on the basis of the pre-determined marks ranges.
Accordingly, the “Statement of Subject wise Performance” issued by the Board for Class X 2010 examination shall have only grades.
The schools affiliated to the Board have also been directed to introduce the above Grading Scheme in the evaluation of their students in class IX under the scheme of Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) wef academic year 2009-10
1 Operational Modalities followed for implementation of grading scheme are :
1.1 A student’s performance has been assessed using conventional method of numerical marking.
1.2 The ‘Grades’ have been awarded to indicate the subject wise performance.
1.3 Subject wise Grades and Grade Point (GP) have been shown in the “Statement of Subject wise Performance” to be issued to all candidates.
The candidates have also been provided CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) excluding additional 6th subject as per Scheme of Studies in the “Statement of Subject wise Performance”
An indicative equivalence of Grade Point and percentage of marks can be computed as follows:
Subject wise indicative percentage of marks =9.5x GP of the subject
Overall indicative percentage of marks =9.5x CGPA
1.4 The practice of declaring Compartment/ Fail have been discontinued. The overall result in the “Statement of Subject wise Performance” have been shown as :

1.5 Those candidates who obtain the qualifying grades (minimum grade D) in all the subjects excluding 6th Additional subject as per Scheme of Studies shall be awarded a Qualifying Certificate.
