CISCE Grading System 2022: ICSE & ISC Marking

CISCE Grading System 2022: The Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) is the regulatory Board governing all the academic activities related to Indian Council for Secondary Education (ICSE) and the Indian School Certificate (ISC). First of all, we need to understand the nomenclature as to what CISCE, ICSE, and ISC mean. The Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) is the Board that conducts the Board Examination for class 10, known as Indian Council for Secondary Education (ICSE) Examinations, and the Board Examination for class 12, known as the Indian School Certificate (ISC) Examinations.

Now, if we talk about the CISCE Grading System 2022, the board follows a completely different grading system pattern when compared with CBSE Grading System or any other State Board. The students are assessed on the basis of their performance in the external examinations as well as in the internals. The external examinations are marked using the percentage method while the internal assessment is done using the grading method.

The Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) Board is considered to be the toughest Educational Board in India. It is known for its unique curriculum, which helps in the overall development of the learners. The Board lays a comprehensive syllabus from the very starting itself, which solidifies the academic base of the learners. Read the article given below to understand the uniqueness of the CISCE Grading system.

As the abbreviation states, SUPW is a Social subject and is kept in the timetable of the ICSE and ISC students once a week. Students try to bring about socially productive changes in their near environment. They are awarded grades on the basis of their Socially productive approach. The assessment is indicated by a letter grade, Where 'A' is the highest Grade while 'E' is the lowest. Only Grades A to D is recorded in Certificates. The representation of the grading system is as follows.
