8 students get 'differential' CBSE result

Grades given by CBSE different from the ones awarded by the school

Eight students of Class 10 from Treamis World School in Electronic City got the shock of their life when they saw their CBSE results declared on May 28.

The grades that the CBSE gave them in their Formative Assessment (FA) was greatly different from what they expected and what had been given to them by the school. School authorities, however, assured them and their parents that the mistake would be rectified in two days.

A copy of the online marksheet of one such student of the school, in possession with Deccan Herald, shows that the student got an FA grade of C1 (i.e. 51 to 60 marks and a grade point of 6.0) in all the five subjects. The result given by the school for the student concerned in term one and term two however clearly show the student getting various grades such as A1, A2 and B1 and B2 in most of the subjects. Only in one instance (in term 1) did the student concerned get a C1 in social studies.

In a letter to parents, Manjula Mathew, principal of the school, acknowledged the ‘differential marks’ of the CBSE and those in the ‘school’s records’ and further says that parents would be intimated once it received confirmation from the board.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, the parent of a student said: “We met the principal and the chairman of the school last Friday and they told us that the mistake would be corrected. They claim that it is the fault of the board and not theirs. However, it has been more than a week since their assurance but we have not heard from them.”

When asked if it was the fault of the school, Manjula said: “It is neither the fault of the school nor of the board. I personally visited the regional office in Chennai and it seems somewhere during the process of conversion of grades of FA3 and FA4, a technical error seems to have occurred. This will be rectified in two days,” she said.
