CBSE Grading System

CBSE Class 10 result declared on 28th May 2010. This year CBSE issued Grades at the place of Marks. The newly introduced CBSE grading system in class 9 and class 10 is actually a nine point scale grading system. The performance of students is assessed in nine points starting from A1 to E2.

The grades are provided as below:

1.    A1 –> for 91 to 100 marks ( grade point is 10)
2.    A2 –> for 81 to 90 marks  ( grade point is 9)
3.    B1 –> for 71 to 80 marks  ( grade point is 8 )
4.    B2 –> for 61 to 70 marks  ( grade point is 7)
5.    C1 –> for 51 to 60 marks  ( grade point is 6)
6.    C2 –> for 41 to 50 marks  ( grade point is 5)
7.    D –> for 33 to 40 marks  ( grade point is 4)
8.    E1 –> for 21 to 32 marks  ( no grade point)
9.    E2 –> for 00 to 20 marks  ( no grade point)

Individual grades and grade points will be given for each subject. Students will also get overall grade point for five subjects. This overall grade point is called CGPA (cumulative grade point average) and it can be used to calculate estimated overall percentage of marks obtained by the student.

Calculation of Percentage for one subject : Grade Point X 9.5

Example : suppose a student get B1 in Hindi and his grade point is 8. Now his estimated percentage in Hindi will be 8 X 9.5 = 76 percent.

Calculation of overall percentage : CGPA X 9.5

Example : suppose  CGPA (printed on grade sheet) is 7.8. Now his/her estimated overall percentage will be 7.8 X 9.5 = 74.1 percent.

Note : Abbreviations used against Result :

QUAL – Eligible for Qualifying Certificate,
EIOP – Eligible for Improvement of Performance,
NIOP – Not Eligible for Improvement of Performance,
XXXX – Upgradation of Performance/Additional Subject
N.E. – Not Eligible,
R.W. – Result Withheld,
R.L. – Result Later,
UFM – Unfair means,
SJD – Subjudice?

  2. Sir, I am the class teacher of VIII and I don’t have any idea about the promotion policy of class VI-VIII. Some students are going to leave my school dut to their father’s transfer. All the students have required the report book as soon as possible. So at this situation, what could I do? So, I kindly request you to issue promotion policy of VI-VIII immediately,so that we could provide the report book to the students early.

    This system is worst !!!!!! A student should at least know his/her marks in the respective subjects.. 60% marks are in hands of a teacher and their comes policy of favouritism …… and if we didn’t join their coaching then they will not award you good marks…:’(:-(
