CBSE Class 10 results: Mumbai schools get students’ scores, identify toppers
Mumbai city news: Now, schools can calculate individual percentages, identified toppers, and assessed subject-wise performancemumbai Updated: Jun 06, 2017 01:03 IST
Students in many city schools received their scores two days after results were declared. On Saturday, CBSE released only the grade-point average for students of the majority of the city’s schools .
The delay was because of problems in uploading the data. Without the marks, schools could not calculate the individual percentages and students only knew their cumulative grade point average (CGPA). The CGPA is a score between one and 10; a score of one is equivalent to 0-10% and 10 is equivalent to 90-100%.
The Birla School, Kalyan, said that they received the scores around 11pm. “We sent an email to the board on Saturday, complaining that we could not download our students’ scores from the website. We waited in the office till 7pm, but there was no response from them,” said Ranjna Jangra, principal.
After receiving the scores, the school calculated individual percentages, identified toppers, and assessed subject-wise performance.
“Nearly 52% of students scored above 90%,” said Jangra. “On Saturday, we only knew the CGPA, but we didn’t know their exact percentages.”
The school topper, Rhea Bannerjee, scored 99.4%.
At Ryan International School, Kandivli, Ankit Mishra topped with 99%; 101 of 351 students secured distinction (81% to 90%) and 83 scored above 91%.
“It was a frustrating weekend as we were waiting for our marks, but now we can celebrate,” said Anjali Bowen, principal of the school.
Students of Rajhans Vidyalaya were able to view the results late on Monday night, after the school had written to the CBSE repeatedly since Saturday. “It’s a big relief to finally get the results. We were one of the few schools that hadn’t received the results till Monday evening,” said Deepshikha Srivastava, principal. Forty-two of its 123 students scored above 90%, eight above 95%. The topper scored 99%. “We are informing students about the scores,” said Srivastava.
