CBSE New Grading System for Class 10 Class 12

The positional grading system introduced by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in Class 10  Class 12. The national subject average grading system or positional grading introduced by the CBSE this year has divided the students into eight categories. 



The top 12.5% scorers were given A1 grade and the next 12.5% A2 grade. Similarly, lower grades such as B1, B2, C1, C2, D1 and D2 were equally divided. If more students score high marks in a subject, then naturally the grade of the students may be pushed lower.

CBSE Grading System : 
For awarding the grades, the Board shall put all the passed students in a rank order and will award grades as follows:


A-1    Top        1/8th of the passed candidates
A-2    Next      1/8th of the passed candidates
B-1    Next      1/8th of the passed candidates
B-2   Next      1/8th of the passed candidates
C-1    Next      1/8th of the passed candidates
C-2   Next      1/8th of the passed candidates
D-1   Next      1/8th of the passed candidates
D-2  Next      1/8th of the passed candidates

E Failed candidates


CBSE Ranks and Marks : 
(a) Minor variations in proportion of candidates to adjust ties will be made.

(b) In case of a tie, all the students getting the same score, will get the same grade. If the number of students at a score point need to be divided into two segments, the smaller segment will go with the larger.

(c) Method of grading will be used in subjects where the number of candidates who have passed is more than 500.

(d) In respect of subjects where total number of candidates passing in a subject is less than 500, the grading would be adopted on the pattern of grading and distribution in other similar subjects.
