Jamshedpur, June 3: The long wait of students was finally over as the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Saturday declared the results of Class X examinations.
Continuing with the momentum set last year, Vidya Bharti Chinmaya Vidyalaya (VBCV), Telco, dominated the proceedings as students from the school stole the show in the city and came out winners as 50 students bagged the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 10, highest in comparison to other city schools. Total of 182 students from the school appeared for the class 10 exam.
Overall, students in Jamshedpur were happy that for the sixth consecutive year there has been no cut-throat competition with marks and percentage unlike other boards like ICSE or the Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC).
Im am very delighted with the results as the outcome is more or less the same as we predicted and would like to thank each and every teacher and student who has put in a lot of hard work, said Vipin Sharma, principal, Vidya Bharati Chinmaya Vidyalaya.
Students and even parents are getting used to the grading system gradually. More students in our school who has received 10 CGPAs this time, added Mrs. Sharma.
Like past few years Class X CBSE students were given grades and the performance was calculated on the basis of CGPA instead of marks. The grading was at a band of 10, which meant students who scored anything between 91 and 100 received an A1 grade, with a grade point of 10. This was followed by A2, which means marks between 81 and 90 with a grade.
Students and schools almost waited for a week to learn about the CBSE Class X performances. The Patna region results of individual students were uploaded after 4 pm today which kept the students waited.
CBSE started giving grades to its students since the last six years that does not allow students to compare themselves with others.
Students also expressed happiness over grading system. Unlike other boards, CBSE has ended the rat race for marks. We are tension-free with grades and the competition of not performing well in marks. The grading system with the flexibility of appearing from school or the board is an advantage, said Aayush Poddar of St. Mary’s English School, who scored 10 CGPA.
Though the board has decided to do away with the marks race but despite all efforts parents and students were busy trying to compare their performances with their counterparts. This only goes to show that craze for percentage still persists among students.
Principals, however, say that they are happy with the results and that the grading system has made students relaxed as compared to the initial days.
However the students may face trouble when they go admissions for at higher institutions. Since a student getting 91 percent and another getting 100 percent have been kept in the same category of A1.
