Additional marks for right attitude, says CBSE

Chennai: It will now pay to display good behaviour and have the right attitude towards life. The Central Board of Secondary Education has said Class IX students can score higher marks in maths or science by showing they have a healthy attitude or adequate life skills.

In a recent circular, CBSE has asked schools to award higher grades in subjects under the scholastic category, which includes English, mathematics, science or social science, to students who get exceptionally good scores in coscholastic areas where they are tested attitude towards the teacher, discipline, or leadership qualities.

While considering co-scholastic areas for promotion of a student from one class to the next, CBSE has said that after converting grades into grade points, a student who scores in the highest range may be upgraded to the next higher level in two scholastic subjects, and those in the second highest range may be upgraded to the next higher grade in one scholastic subject.

‘‘All school heads are advised to explain this promotion policy for Class IX in detail to parents, teachers and students to create awareness and avoid unnecessary inconvenience at a later stage,’’ the CBSE circular said. School heads consider this directive as a reminder to schools that have failed to take assessment in co-scholastic areas.

‘‘Some schools still consider only academic skills for promotion. This circular is expected to be a wake-up call for such schools to take note of the importance that the CBSE places on developing life skills, and attitudes and values of children,’’ said senior principal of Chennai’s RMK Group of Schools, C Satish.

For instance, a child is good at debating, which reveals leadership qualities, then scores obtained in this activity could be added to the student’s English scores. ‘‘Some schools have been following this. The CBSE directive is a call for others to keep up with these proactive schools,’’ said Satish.

HOW IT WILL WORK

A student will be awarded five points if he secures A+ in life skills, four for an A grade, three for B+, two for B, and one for C
In other co-scholastic areas, including attitudes and values, scientific and creative skills & school clubs, student will get
three grade points for an A+ grade, two for an A grade & one point for securing a B grade
This means a student who gets A+ in all categories of coscholastic areas included in the report card will earn 42 points, by securing 15 points for life skills, 15 for attitudes and values, 6 points for co-curricular activities, and 6 in the health and physical education
Those who get total grade points in the range 34-42 may get upgraded to the next higher grade in 2 subjects in scholastic areas. Those in the 19-33 range may get next higher grade in 1 subject
