The Central Board of Secondary Education has introduced a new grading system for Class 10 students. The new nine-point scale grading system will require students to get qualifying grades in 4 out of 5 subjects to get promoted to next higher class. The board has decided not to carry pass or fail on the mark sheet of students. 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.
The new grading system will have a five point scale, in this grading system students will be awarded with grades from A to E, this grading system was implemented to eliminate the schools from showing the numerical scores on the report card of each students.
