So, CBSE’s Class 10 results have finally been declared. Of the16 lakh Class 10 Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) students across India, more than 7.81 lakh, opted for the school-based tests over board exams, which are considered to be more stressful for students. However, as Board exams have been made mandatory from next year, students will not have the option of giving home exams in 2018.

This year also marks the last year when Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) will be used in Class 10. CBSE has decided to re-introduce board exams for the 10th grade starting next year.

In the meantime, here’s the result of a ‘perfect’ score card. A student who does not wish to be named has scored 10 in each of her subjects, English, German, mathematics, science and social science.

SA stands for summative assessment (evaluation of what a student has learnt after a term or after certain periods by comparing it against a standard) and FA for formative assessment (is part of the instructional process or continuous assessment to enable students and teachers to make adjustments in the teaching-learning process). When the final result of the CBSE Class 10 board exam is calculated, all FA and SA are included in the CGPA (cumulate grade point average or average of all grades). The marking scheme works out as: Final result: SA1(30%) + SA2(30%) + FA1(10%) + FA2(10%) +FA3(10%) + FA4(10%) = 100%

First term equals SA1 + FA1 + FA2, which equals 50% and the second term includes SA2 + FA3 + FA4, which equals 50%, making it a total of 100%.

Last year, 96.21% of the students who had appeared for the exams cleared it. Girls had a marginally better pass percentage than boys. 96.36% of the girls who appeared for the exams passed, while the boys had a pass percentage of 96.11%. About 1,68,541 students got a perfect CGPA of 10 points in 2016.
