Dubai: The Indian education board, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), announced the results of grade 10 exams on Tuesday evening, putting an end to the anxious wait for results of thousands of students in the country.

It is the first time the results are being announced since the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation system (CCE) was introduced by the CBSE last year.

The new report card has two main areas in which students are assessed – scholastic and co-scholastic areas.

Previously the report cards contained only the marks scored in five core subjects and the assessment of three other areas. But now, these three areas have been divided into fifteen categories – such as life skills, attitudes, thinking skills, social skills, literary and scientific skills etc - allowing the students to be assessed more comprehensively.

The report cards that the students will get later from their schools will show the grades they achieved in class 9 as well as class 10.

This year, for the first time, students also had the option of choosing to write exams conducted by their schools or exams conducted by the CBSE.  However, many students in the UAE chose to appear for the exam conducted by CBSE, schools said.

The academic areas are graded on a nine-point scale - A1 , A2 , B1,B2,C1,C2,D, E1 and E2. Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is then calculated based on the grades. A1 grades are given 10 points, A2 nine points, B1 eight points and so on.

This way, as student who gets A1 grade in all subjects will score a CGPA of 10.
