CBSE Upgraded Grades by one Level in Class 10

In CBSE Class 10 this year onwards, you may have noticed written ** Upgraded Grades by one Level. This is a new policy under CCE system of examination that if a student gets good grades in extra-curricular activities, he/she will be upgraded one level in upto two main subjects.

A student who gets A+ in all the categories of co-scholastic areas included in the report card will earn 42 grade points according to the scale.


Part 2 A : Life Skills
Grades Thinking Skills Social Skills Emotional Skills Total Points
A+ 5 5 5 15
A 4 4 4 12
B+ 3 3 3 9
B 2 2 2 6
C 1 1 1 3


Part 2 B : Attitudes and values
Grades Teachers School-mates School Programmes Environment Value System Total Points
A+ 3 3 3 3 3 15
A 2 2 2 2 2 10
B 1 1 1 1 1 5



Part 3 A : Co-Scholastic Activities (any two)
Grades Literacy and Creative skills, Clubs Scientific skills and Aesthetic Skills Total Points
A+ 3 3 6
A 2 2 4
B 1 1 2


Part 3 B : Health and physical education (any two)
Grades Sports/ Indigenous sports/ NCC / NSS/ Scouting and Guiding Swimming/ Gymnastics/ Yoga/ First Aid/  Gardening/Shramdaan Total Points
A+ 3 3 6
A 2 2 4
B 1 1 2


The system will work as below :

Those students who get total grade points in the range 34-42, may benefit by getting upgraded to the next higher grade in two subjects in scholastic areas.


Those students who get total grade points in the range 19-33, may benefit by getting upgraded to the next higher grade in one subject in scholastic areas.


If a student gets less than 19 total grade points in co-scholastic areas, separate remark may be made in the report card stating that participation and achievement in co-scholastic areas needs improvement. However, this should not affect the student’s promotion to higher class.


A star may be put on every up-scaled grade to indicate that the final grade has been arrived after including the achievement of the student in co-scholastic areas. A footnote in this regard may be given at appropriate place in the report card.


The benefit of up scaling the grade in different subjects may start from the subject in which a student obtains lowest grade followed by next higher grade and so on.


Benefit   shall    be    given   to   the    students    who   win   I/II    positions/prizes in competitions   held   at     state   level   and/or   participation   in   competitions   held   at national/international   level   organized    by   a   body    recognized by the state/central Government /CBSE.   Any     competition organized   by   such   agencies related to the co-Scholastic   areas included in the Board’s CCE Card may be considered for giving this benefit.  Those    students   who qualify under this provision will benefit by getting their grade up-scaled to the next higher grade in two subjects provided this benefit has not been given to the student under the aforesaid grade point scheme.

    board has given upgradation in optional subject instead of main subject. It is right. my son has got upgradation in maths and punjabi(Optional subject intead of another main subject. this causes him lesser grade in main subjects and lesser CGPA. while in this circular board has mentioned the word main subjects. Kindly advise me should this be corrected
