CBSE Class 12 Grading System

Annually, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducts the board examinations between February and March. Over 10 lakh candidates appear for the examination every year. Most of the Class 12 students get confused with the grading system followed by the CBSE. The grading system is the same as Class 10. The board will put all the students in a rank order and will award grades as follow.

  • 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 will make the minor variations in the proportion of candidates to adjust ties. All the students will be getting the same grade in case of a tie. The smaller segment will go with the larger if the number of students at a scoring point needs to be divided into two segments. 

The board will use the method of grading in subjects where the number of candidates who have passed is more than 500. CBSE has clearly stated that the grading would be adopted on the pattern of grading and distribution in other similar subjects if the total number of candidates passing in a subject is less than 500.

CBSE Frames New Rules On Low Attendance
