Grading System in CBSE class-10 CCE Pattern

As per the new CCE Pattern of evaluation in CBSE class 10, only grades will be displayed in the progress card of the student. However, marks will be given while evaluating the answer sheets and these marks will be converted into grade in later stage. In case of co-scholastic areas/subjects other than main subjects will be evaluated through grades only. For more information about CCE Pattern follow the links of Continuous and Comprehensive evaluation and CGPA 

As discussed earlier this scheme of Grading system is introduced to reduce the unnecessary pressure from students by means of continuous evaluation by taking number of small tests throughout the year instead of single test at the end of the academic session. This will surely improve the student’s performance by identifying his/her learning difficulties at regular intervals. Let’s welcome this move by CBSE and get prepare for the upcoming exam format and inclusion of CCE Pattern

CCE Pattern


Some facts and analysis by

Let’s discuss the pattern of the exam. There are two types of test ie Formative and Summative assessment.

Formative Assessment: 

  • help students identify their strengths and weaknesses and target areas that need work
  • help faculty recognize where students are struggling and address problems immediately
  • Conducted 4 times a year, they carry 40% weightage

Summative Assessment: 

  • summative assessment is provided to evaluate students learning skill at the end of an instructional unit by comparing it against some standard or benchmark
  • It is a 3 hour test, conducted twice a year.
  • Each summative is conducted after 2 formatives and each carry a weightage of 30%.

We should be thankful to the recommendations of the Kothari Commission, National Policy on Education and National Curriculum Frame Work which make it flexible for students and generate the interest in learning. The stress factor, Personality development and encouraging specific abilities of students, who do not excel in academics but perform well in other co-curricular areas are the core points in this scheme.
