Punjab Boards Announce Overhaul of Grading System for Matric and Inter Exams

BISE Rawalpindi recently declared the discontinuation of numerical scores, replacing them with a new grading system applicable to all annual and supplementary exams. The decades-old system, including the 33 percent passing marks, will be scrapped.

The revised grading system introduces A++ for 95-100%, A+ for 90-94%, A for 85-89%, and B++ for 80-84%. The grading scale extends to B+ (75-79%), B (70-74%), C (60-69%), D (50-59%), E (40-49%), and F (below 40%).

Under the new system, candidates must score a minimum of 40 percent to pass exams, eliminating the previous 33 percent passing marks. Initially implemented for Class 9 and Intermediate Part I, future result cards will feature Cumulative Grade Point Averages (CGPA) alongside grades.

Punjab boards have decided to overhaul the numerical grading system for annual matric and inter examinations across Pakistan, effective from March 2024.
