Shift from Numerical Grading to CGPA


In a groundbreaking decision, the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE) Rawalpindi has officially announced the replacement of the 76-year-old numerical grading system in matric and inter exams with a modern grading system, effective from March next year.

Under the new system, Cumulative Grade Point Averages (CGPA) will replace numerical scores, aligning with international standards for evaluating academic performance. Notably, the previous 33% passing mark has been replaced by a 40% passing score for Class IX and intermediate Part I, setting a higher standard for academic success and garnering positive reactions from students and educators.

The new grading system introduces a detailed range of grades, from A++ for scores between 95-100% to F for scores below 40%, providing a more nuanced assessment of students' capabilities.
Preparations for the system's implementation are underway, following a deferred attempt to introduce a GPA-based system due to technical issues. The existing numerical system will be maintained for this year's results, allowing a grace period for adaptation.
