CBSE students confused over same CGPA &
With Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) declaring its X results for all regions, the anxiety among all the students have settled down.The most interesting fact that came up during the entire episode of CBSE X results was that the candidates who have chosen the school based assesment have done well than the board exam takers. Also, the race for marks was not prevailing because of the implementation of grading system.


However, now students are confused about how they will get admission to class XI if they wish to switch to the state board. Many students scoring above 90% will have the same 10 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA), which is the indicative percentage of marks, what will the college take into consideration for class XI admissions? This may be a big problem when only one or two seats will be left for admissions with many takers having the same CGPA.

According to reports, many principals are not much worried about this issue. They believe, that after the results, those who want to secure admissions in HSC or any other board, should approach the school. The school will directly send their marks to the state board authorities who will convey them to the concerned colleges online. But students will not be able to look at their marks.Marks will be taken into consideration in case of equal CGPA.

The CBSE has also issued a circular to all schools, in which it has said that in the case of two or more candidates obtaining equal CGPA, the overall merit of such candidates may be determined. For Science-based courses, candidates obtaining higher CGPA in one compulsory language will get preference. The same is the case for Commerce and Humanities.
