CBSE Grading System 2021

In the academic year of 2010-11, cbse announced the change in the result pattern for class 10th boards. Which stated that the students will get their result in the form of grades rather than the percentage, and the total result was calculated as cgpa, this was the CCE(continuous and comprehensive grading system) grading system which was effective from 2010-2017

After that came the YEE (New year end exam) grading system which was quite confusing for most of the people, because of it’s grading technique in which students were given grades according to the comparative performance of all the students giving the exam.

The concept of these two grading system would be better understood by the comparison table given below:

CCE Grading System (2010-17) YEE Grading System (2018 – Present)
91 – 100 = A1 Top 1/8th of the passed students = A1
81 – 90 = A2 Next 1/8th of the passed students = A2
71 – 80 = B1 Next 1/8th of the passed students = B1
61 – 70 = B2 Next 1/8th of the passed students = B2
51 – 60 = C1 Next 1/8th of the passed students = C1
41 – 50 = C2 Next 1/8th of the passed students = C2
33 – 40 = D Next 1/8th of the passed students = D1
21 – 32 = E1 Next 1/8th of the passed students = D2
0 – 20 = E2 Failed Students = E

Important points to remember

  • If there is a tie in case of grades, then the students sharing the same grade will get the same score.
  • Grading system is only applicable for the subjects in which the number of passing students will be more than 500.
  • If the total no. of passing students are less than 500, then the grading will be according to the pattern of grading and marks distribution for other similar subjects.
  • Minor variations for adjusting ties will however be made.

Calculating Percentage From CGPA

The biggest trouble for the students and parents is that how to determine their percentage using the cgpa. First you need to know what cgpa is: cgpa is the cumulative grade point average which means the total average grade pointer of a student.

A student can calculate his/her percentage by directly multiplying the cgpa with 9.5. for e.g. if a student scores cgpa = 8.0 then his/her total percentage would be : 8.0 x 9.5 = 76 %. Now this percentage is not fully accurate, but it gives you an approximate total percentage.

Performance Based Grading System

This grading pattern is still used for 12th class grading, this is the traditional grading system which was also used earlier as cbse grading system for class 10th and 12th. In this the total marks for each subject is given and then the percentage is calculated accordingly.
