CBSE Class 10 Board Exam Results
Initially, CBSE declared only grade-point average for the students of most of the schools. Their scores were announced two days after the result declaration. This delay was caused due to issues in uploading data. Without the scores, schools were unable to compute the individual percentages. The students only came to know about their cumulative grade point average (CGPA). In case you aren’t aware, CGPA is a score amid 1 and 10, a score of 1 is equal to 0-10% and 10 is equal to 90-100%.
Sharing her experience about the same, Ranjana Jangra the principal of The Birla School, Mumbai said, “On Saturday, we only knew the CGPA, but we didn’t know their exact percentages.” “We sent an email to the board on Saturday, complaining that we could not download our students’ scores from the website. We waited in the office till 7pm, but there was no response from them,” she added. After receiving the scores, the school computed individual percentages, analysed subject-wise performance and declared the toppers. “Nearly 52% of students scored above 90%,” shared Jangra. Rhea Bannerjee, the school topper scored a whopping 99.4%.
The principal of Rajhans Vidyalaya, Mumbai Deepshikha Srivastava said, “It’s a big relief to finally get the results. We were one of the few schools that hadn’t received the results till Monday evening.” Out of 123 students, only 42 scored 90% and 8 students scored above 95%. The topper from the school scored 99%.
At Ryan International School, Kandivli, Mumbai, 101 out of 351 students got a distinction (81% to 90%) and 83 students scored above 91%. Ankit Mishra topped with 99%. Talking about her experience regarding the delay, the school’s principal, Anjali Bowen said, “It was a frustrating weekend as we were waiting for our marks, but now we can celebrate.”
