'Formula' devised to calculate marks of CBSE students

To facilitate shifting of students from the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to the Pre-University course, a formula has been worked out by the Department of PU Education and the Central Board.

This formula is expected to help students who were stumped by Cumulative Grade Point Percentage (CGPA) and percentiles introduced this year by the CBSE for its class 10 results. Department of Pre-University Director Shankar Narayan said the CBSE had worked out the ‘formula’.

Under this, the indicative marks for subject-wise performance can be calculated by multiplying 9.5, which is the appropriate multiplier given by CBSE board, with the grade points. For overall indicative marks, multiply 9.5 with CGPA. (That is, subject wise indicative marks percentage = 9.5 X GP of the subject, and overall indicative marks percentage = 9.5 x CGPA).

For instance, if the CGPA of a student is 9.4, the indicative percentage of marks would be 89.3 (CGPA X 9.5). In case of two or more candidates obtaining equal CGPA and indicative percentage of marks, the inter-merit of such candidates will be determined based on the percentile score obtained by the candidate. Those with a higher percentile score will then be preferred for admission. Clarifications, if any, can be obtained by calling 011-22023737 or 011-22487263.

Shankar Narayan said: “All PU colleges in the State have been instructed to apply the formula to know the exact percentage of each CBSE student who is applying for a seat in their college. In case any college has not received the same, a circular will be sent immediately,” he said.

CBSE students normally continue to study class XI and XII in the same school, but some students, especially those who wish to study Arts prefer to change their colleges as very few CBSE school offer courses in Arts. Like in the case of Deeksha, a student from National Public School, who chose to study Arts.

“I applied for an Arts course in a PU college, and the college seems to be aware about the percentile conversion system. My seat is confirmed in the PU college,” she said.
Vindhyashree N, a student from the same school, who has secured 8.6 as her CGPA, wants to study Science. “I have applied in three PU colleges, with my CGPA. As per calculation, I have secured 82 percent. I can be assured with a seat only after the cut-off list is announced by next week,” she said.
