The
SSC results are out today. This time there is a huge difference in the way of
results announcement. A new "Grade Point System" surprised one
and all. It's the talk of the day.
There are six subjects: 1st Language, 2nd Language, 3rd Language, Maths, Science and Social Studies. The grade points are awarded for these subjects individually based on the actual marks obtained in those subjects and the key table followed for this process is:
Try to fill out the table for some other possible GPAs. It's not an easy game. It's number crunching all along...
check out the results here:
A scale of 10:
A student getting 90 in Hindi and all 92's in the
remaining 5 subjects gets a 10 out of 10 scale, but do you believe what his
total score is? 550 out of 600.
But a student getting all 100's in five subjects and
91 in the remaining one subject gets a scale of 9.8. you get surprised at his
total.It is 591. This is the surprise part of the scaling system. "A student with a total marks
of 591 has a GPA of 9.8 where as a student with a total of 550 can get 10 out
of 10".

A
student with marks 92,90,92,92,92,92 for 1st Language, 2nd Language, 3rd
language, Maths, Science and Social Studies in that order (A total of 550)gets grade points
10,10,10,10,10 and 10. The Grade Point Average becomes (10+10+10+10+10+10)/6 =
60/6 = 10
A
student with marks 100,100,91,100,100,100 for 1st Language, 2nd Language, 3rd
language, Maths, Sciencs and Social Studies in that order (A total of 591) gets grade points
10,10,9,10,10 and 10. The Grade Point Average becomes (10+10+9+10+10+10)/6 =
59/6 = 9.8
GPA
workout:
These
GPAs are rounded to one decimal point.
Some
possible GPAs:
(10+10+10+10+10+10)/6
= 60/6 = 10
(9+10+10+10+10+10)/6
= 59/6 = 9.8
(9+9+10+10+10+10)/6
= 58/6 = 9.7
(9+9+9+10+10+10)/6
= 57/6 = 9.5
56/6
= 9.3; 55/6 = 9.2; 54/6 = 9.0......
The
Total of Grade Points can be decremented by a minimum of 1.
Let
us see how the Range of Total marks varies for different GPAs:
