Grading System Is Better Than Marks Essay Scholarships

There is a need to devise a proper system for awarding grades based on students performance in Indian varsities since it is considered best method to judge their calibre, observed H. Devaraj, vice-chairman, University Grants Commission (UGC).

Grading system is better than the conventional marks system and has been followed in top institutions abroad, he said, addressing a workshop on ‘Choice Based Credit System (CBCS)’ and ‘Credit Framework for Skill Based Vocational Courses’ at the University of Hyderabad on Tuesday.

Prof. H. Devaraj also favoured more flexibility and freedom for educational institutions in designing curriculum syllabi and teaching learning methods best fit to the present needs of the students. Arguing for CBCS, he stated that it provides a ‘cafeteria’ type approach in which the students can take courses of their choice, learn at their own pace, undergo additional courses and acquire more than the required credits, and adopt an interdisciplinary approach to learning.

“It is desirable higher education institutions move to CBCS and implement the grading system. Good teachers are responsible for imparting quality education among students and the universities should make efforts to appoint the best teachers,” Mr. Devaraj said.

  • No, grading system is far better than marking

    I belive that if a child got 89% then his heart will breake and he will fill guilt but if he get A2 then he will try to develope his strength. He can understand the situation and can compete with other students. In this system mark is given according to how much a student understood not how much he by-hearted.
