With Central Board of Secondary Education’s (CBSE) decision on increasing co-scholastic points to be given to the students (upto Class X) from this year,students will now be able to improve their Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA).

From this year,the board has raised total grade points from 42 to 65. Points will be allotted based on students’ performance in life skills (15),work education (5),visual and performing arts (20),attitudes and values (10),co-curricular activities and health and physical education (10).

Out of 65 points,students who score between 40 and 52 will add one point to their CGPA (10),while those scoring between 53 and 65 will add two.

CBSE Regional Director R J Khanderao said,“The key idea behind introducing the scheme is to increase the participation of students in the extra-curricular activities and sports.”
