New Grading System Implemented Officially For Matric and Inter

In the latest changes to Pakistan’s School system, the deep-rooted numerical grading system in annual matric and inter exams will be removed from all over the country in the spring of next year.

BISE Rawalpindi has affirmed the end of the numerical grading method, replacing it with a grading method, a change invited by Students.

This change eliminates the previous 33% passing mark and introduces a 40% passing score. Initially applied to Class IX and intermediate Part I, future result cards will feature Cumulative Grade Point Averages (CGPA) alongside grades.

To facilitate the transition, the Punjab Board will train education boards in Sindh. The new grading system awards A++ for 95-100%, A+ for 90-94%, A for 85-89%, and B++ for 80-84%.

Grades continue with B+ (75-79%), B (70-74%), C (60-69%), D (50-59%), E (40-49%), and F (below 40%).

Preparations are underway, and stakeholders, including education boards, teachers’ organizations, and private educational institutions, have been informed.

A prior attempt to implement a GPA-based system was deferred for a year due to technical issues, with the existing system maintained for this year’s matriculation and intermediate results.
