New Delhi: Girls have once again outperformed boys in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 10 exams this year, the results of which were announced Friday.
The board, which has introduced the grading system for the first time, said that 90.68 percent girls are eligible for the qualifying certificate, as compared to 88.30 percent boys.
A total of 886,338 students took the CBSE Class 10 exams this year. Of them, 522,107 were boys and 364,231 girls.
Students have been given grades instead of percentages this year. The grades are given on a nine-point scale ranging from A1 (excellent) to E2 (dissatisfactory) with D being the minimum pass grade.
Those students who have obtained the qualifying grades (D and above) in all the subjects excluding the additional subject have been given the qualifying certificate.
A1 represents above 91 score. B1 is 81 to 90, while D is for marks from 33 to 40, and E1 and E2 are below 33.
As the exact marks will not be revealed, these points can be multiplied with 9.5 to get the average marks represented by the grades. Thus, A1 will be equal to 95, A2 - 85.5, B1 - 76, B2 - 66.5, C1 - 57, C2 - 47.5 and D will be equal to 38 average marks.
CBSE spokesperson Rama Sharma said the practice of failing a student or awarding compartment has been discontinued. Instead, students are either awarded the qualifying certificate or a result declaring that he or she is eligible for improvement.
The board results were declared in Delhi, Ajmer, Panchkula, Chennai, Guwahati and Allahabad zones Friday.
Sharma said: "The Chennai zone has outperformed other regions with 96.18 percent students becoming eligible to get qualifying certificates."
Students from the autonomous Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNV) outperformed all other schools across India with a qualifying certificate percentage of 98.54 followed by Kendriya Vidyalayas where 96.87 percent students will get qualifying certificates.
In government-run schools, the percentage this year was 83.01, while in government-aided schools it was 80.65.
