Sixteen-year old Arpita Sharda was spending a lazy weekend at home on Saturday when she got a call from her school, telling her she had secured 98.2% in the Secondary School Exam (Class 10) of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

Although exciting, the sudden announcement took her by surprise. The board had only shared the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of students in the results declared on Thursday. Students were to be given details of their marks through designated help centres by Wednesday.

“I was stunned when my principal called up my father to congratulate him,” said Sharda, a student of Birla School, Kalyan. “Earlier, we were told to expect our marks by only next week.”

Schools received an email from the board containing students’ marks on Saturday evening. “We received the marks around 5pm,” said Girija Singh, principal, Navy Children School, Colaba. “It was entirely unexpected.”

However, most schools have decided to collate the data on Monday, as their offices had closed by the time the marks were sent.
“By the time we received the marks, it was too late to calculate each and every child’s percentage,” said Jayashree Khandekar, DAV Public School, Navi Mumbai.

The move has brought relief to schools and students who were worried about going through a tedious process to convert their grades into marks.

“We are glad that the board decided to give us the marks directly,” said Avnita Bir, RN Podar School, Santacruz. “Giving it through centres would have led to chaos.”

    Delhi: From a granary to creative business street

    For the uninitiated, Dhan Mill Compound, a former granary and a cluster of warehouses, has morphed into the city’s modish food, fashion, design and lifestyle destination. Its streets are lined with art cafes, home décor outlets, ateliers, art galleries, pottery studios, dance halls and high-end boutiques, whose facades and interiors are as interesting and experimental as the wares they deal in. Interestingly, all of these fancy establishments are housed in re-purposed warehouse buildings, which still have metal roofs.
