Unavailability of minister for secondary education K Parthasarathi has kept around 13 lakh students waiting for one more day for the SSC (Class 10th) SSC results; however these results would be declared today i.e. 24th May at 11:00 as minister is back in city from his campaign. Once declared, students can check the results at various results portals like www.manabadi.co.in, www.schools9.com and also on the official website of Directorate of Government Examinations on http://www.bseap.org
There will be history in making with the declaration of the results this time as students would be awarded with the grades based on the model of CBSE board with an intention to reduce the stress from the students. Passed students would be given grades from the different eight grades. Students who score marks in the range of 92 to 100 in a particular subject will be given A1, similarly for 83 to 91 marks (A2), 75 to 82 (B1), 67 to 74 (B2), 59 to 66 (C1), 51 to 58 (C2), 43 to 50 (D1), 35 to 42 (D2) and for 34 and below marks, an E grade will be awarded.
For A1 grade students, 10 grade points will be awarded, while it will be 9 for A2, 8 for B1, 7 for B2, 6 for C1, 5 for C2, 4 for D1, 3 for D2. There will be no grade points for E-grade. Second Language will be judged with different parameters where as for 1st, 3rd and non-languages above mentioned criteria would be applicable.
With the adoption of this Grade Point Average (GPA) methodology, mark sheets would not carry individual or overall marks of the students as it would be replaced by the grades and the average of grade points would decide the final grade of students.
