From the year 2012, the grading system in BSE Telangana has evolved for the better. The marks obtained by students in the examinations are converted into grades, and a cumulative grade is allotted to the student. For most of the students, the grading system doesn’t matter. But we would like you to know about the grading system because your local rank is calculated on the basis of your grades.
Since the grades are allotted to the students according to the marks obtained in a prescribed bracket, it is difficult to calculate the exact local rank. Here, we have outlined the detailed procedure of calculating the grades, grade points, and cumulative grade point average (CGPA).
In high school examination conducted by BSE Telangana, the grading system according to the total score obtained by the student looks like:
|E||194 and below|
There are certain abbreviations used in the exam in addition to these grades:
Now, if we talk about individual subjects, the grades are allotted according to the marks obtained from the total marks allotted to the subject. Again this differs from subject to subject. If we talk about First and Third Languages (Let’s take Telugu and English respectively), the grading slightly differs from that in Second Language (Let’s suppose Hindi).
Further, the grading bracket for non-language subjects (Mathematics, General Science, and Social Science) is kept same as in First and Third language. For physically handicapped students, all languages are gradable according to the Second Language scoring bracket.
Have a look at the following table for better understanding:
|First and Third Language,
Marks for PH candidates
|Below 35||Below 20||E||–|
The aforementioned grades were for subjects. Now, look at the grades allotted in the field of co-curricular activities:
|Marks Range||Grade||Grade Points|
While calculating the CGPA, the grades obtained in co-curricular activities are not included. Thus, grade obtained in any particular activity is the only proof of the performance of the candidate.
Now suppose a student appeared for BSE Telangana high school examinations. The CGPA can be calculated by the procedure mentioned below. However, the exact local rank cannot be calculated according to this procedure of calculating CGPA.
|First Language – Telugu||75||B1||8|
|Second Language – Hindi||76||B1||8|
|Third Language – English||67||B2||7|
CGPA is calculated by the following formula:
CGPA = (8+8+7+9+9+8)/6 = 8.17
This is the CGPA obtained by a student in BSE Telangana high school examination. According to this figure, it is difficult to calculate the local rank but you can rank students on the basis of obtained CGPA.
