CGPA to Percentage
The government of India proclaimed that it is going to introduce a Grading System in all CBSE schools and make Class 10th board examinations optional from coming session 2010-11. The students studying in current academic session 2009-10 will however need to attend board examinations.
This 9 point grade system scales ranges from exceptional to unsatisfactory, and scales with A1, A2, B2, C1, C2, D, E1, and E2. As per the sources, the Central Board of Secondary Education has created a format for aptitude examination which the schools will use to test Class 10 students in every subject, on their level. This emphasis will however be on CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation) throughout the year, in place of single public examination at the end of session.
CGPA is an average of the grade points gained in all subjects, except for the additional sixth subject according to Scheme of Studies. CGPA stands for Cumulative Grade Point Average and students will be able to calculate their CGPA to percentage using a CGPA calculator.
With government’s decision to replace marks with grading system from the current year onward, the expectations, anxiety level and stress among students and parents is likely to be minimal.
