Education system disables the disability in the society where the ability of every individual gets highlighted with their unique quality and the power of their understanding. The systematic division of subjects in schools gives the students the required knowledge of every subject with the opportunity that allows them to understand their field of excellence.
India has around 42 different boards that affiliate each and every school in this country. Other than the states own boards, Central Board of Secondary Education and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations describe themselves to be the most common among all. Every board believes in credit points that work as the measurement to measure the varied levels of achievements of every student.
Holding a few boards, let us discuss the credit points of the followings:
- Central Board of Secondary Education:
This board gives individual credit points for each subject. Their division lies as A1 for 91 to 100 marks (Credit Point 10), A2 for 81 to 90 (Credit Point 9). Similarly B1 and B2 for 71 to 80 (Credit point 8) and 61 to 70 (Credit Point 7) respectively are given in accordance to the marks obtained. This system goes on till it reaches where no Credit Point is awarded for E2 marks in between 00 to 20.
- Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations:
In this board one has to appear in at least 7 subjects out of which one need to clear 5 of them. The credit points usually are divided in percentage system where the internal exams of 20% are added to the external examination of 80%. The passing marks stands with 35% where the marks evaluation for the different entrance examination lies in the best of 5. The concept of best of 5 is calculated with the highest marks that a student obtains out of 7 subjects he/she appears.
These are the entrance exams that one needs to appear if he/she prepares himself/herself to excel in the field of engineering. The credit points here are awarded with distinctive qualities, in accordance to the 40% marks that is being obtained by the candidate in the 12th board examination or equivalent and 60% marks on the test that the candidate appears to crack the entrance.
The other boards controls the credit points in accordance to their individuality but the system is always within:
1. GRADING SYSTEM
2. PERCENTAGE SYSTEM
3. PERCENTILE SYSTEM
4. BEST OF 5 SYSTEM
Indian Education changed its trend with the advent of grading system actually diminishing the level of competition within students reducing the undesired comparison of small differences of marks. This variation of credit points in boards actually creates confusion within students during their entrance in colleges and universities due to the various cut offs but still the allocation of credit points in board result has the positive effect of up gradation in the education system of India.
