Delhi High Court Backs CBSE Grading System

Delhi High Court has backed the decision of grading system introduced by CBSE. The grading system was introduced by CBSE for class IX and X standards in the academic year 2009 to 2010. Earlier a group of national schools has challenged CBSE’s decision and had approached the Delhi High Court, the court has dismissed the petition and said the court has no expert knowledge on education reforms and will not interfere in CBSE matter.

The petition claimed that the grading system is arbitrary and contradicts with Article 14 of the Constitution of India. Readers aware that CBSE declares grades for IX & X students instead of marks, CBSE has consulted professionals and experts in the education field before adopting the grading system. The high court of Delhi went on and said the decision taken by CBSE will help strengthen the education system.

Grading system is much popular in western countries like United States of America and has been practiced for decades by advanced countries. Grading will ease the pressure and tension on students in chasing the marks, a student who secured 99% and a student who secures 90% will be under the same grade. This mayn’t be a good news for the toppers who strive to be at the peak for the rest this is a gift.
