Author: Desk February 1, 2017
Class 10 students of the CBSE will be given grades for practicing yoga or showing patriotism from the next academic year.
A notice released on Tuesday stated that the students would be assessed on a five-point grading scale (A-E) for co-scholastic activities such as yoga, martial arts, sports, NCC among others. Students can opt for any of these under health and physical education category.
The grading will be revealed in the mark sheets. Though, it will not impact the overall result.
The marks for this component will be awarded by the physical education teacher.
In the board exams 80% weightage would be given to the written test while 20% will be given to the school’s internal assessment.
Last year, the governing body of the CBSE had approved a proposal to bring back compulsory Class 10 board exams. The board has 18000 schools affiliated to it.
