CBSE Class X results to be out today
New Delhi, Friday 28 May 2010: The results for the CBSE class X exam will be declared today at 10am. This year, 9,02,517 students the highest so far appeared for the exam out of which 2,47,291 were from the Delhi region. The figure is likely to go down as class X exams become optional from 2011.
While the students will not be marked this year, they will get grade points (GP) and a cumulative grade point average (CGPA). The marks for individual subjects or the total marks will not be given. For every subject, the students will obtain a corresponding grade on the basis of which they will receive a cumulative grade point average.
The top grade A1 will be given to those scoring between 91 and 100 marks in a subject. The last passing grade D will be for a score between 33 and 40. The students would get a corresponding GP to figure out an average for admission purpose. For example, A1 grade fetches 10GP, while A2 gets 9GP. So if a student gets 10GP in science, 9GP in mathematics and 8GP in English, the average GP for admission in science stream would be 9GP (10+9+8=27/3=9).
For those who do want to know their marks, CBSE has come up with a formula. It gives an indicative equivalence of the percentage of marks as against the scored GP.
In order to get subject-wise indicative percentage of marks students can use the formula: 9.5 X GP of the subject , while for the overall indicative percentage the students can use: 9.5 X CGPA . CGPA is the average of GPs obtained in all subjects, excluding the additional sixth subject.
Students can access the result at or Results can be accessed globally by dialing the following Telephone numbers 91 11 24357270 91 11 24357270 and Phone-in service will not be toll free and users would have to bear the normal telephone charges.
