CBSE releases promotion policy for Class IX

New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has come up with a promotion policy for the Class-IX students. The CBSE has asked all schools that the year-end subject-wise grades of a Class-IX student are to be calculated on the basis of performance in all formative and summative assessments in scholastic areas as well as grades obtained in co-scholastic areas.
In a recent circular, the CBSE states that the total grade points earned by any student will be calculated by adding grade points of all co-scholastic areas. The grades obtained in different co-scholastic areas will be converted into grade points.

According to the new circular, the grade points scored by students in co-scholastic areas will add to the scholastic areas. The CBSE has also given a conversion table to schools � In life skills: A+: 5; A-: 4; B+: 3; B-:2; C: .1; and all other co-scholastic areas: A+:3; A: 2; B: 1.
The CBSE introduced the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation Scheme in Class IX in October 2009 and extended it to Class X last year. According to the scheme, both scholastic and co-scholastic aspects are graded, which are then converted into grade points.
Students who get grade points in the range of 34-42 in co-scholastic areas will be upgraded to the next higher grade in two subjects in scholastic areas, the circular clarifies. “Students who get grade points in the range 19-33 will be upgraded to the next higher grade in one scholastic subject. Promotion to the next class will, however, not be affected if a student secures less than 19 grade points in co-scholastic areas.
Students who have taken part or won state, national and international-level competitions, organised by a body recognised by the state or central government or the CBSE, will be considered for co-scholastic grades, CBSE officials said.
For promotion to the next class, a student has to get a qualifying grade of D or above in all subjects, excluding the sixth additional subject. “A student getting E1 or E2 grade in the scholastic areas in one or more subjects will have to improve his/her performance in one subsequent attempt to obtain a qualifying grade. If a student fails to do so, he/she will have to repeat the same class.
