Wants to study commerce
Saraweshwaran Srikkanth who received 10 CGPA, from DAV senior secondary for boys school Mogappair, said he wants to take up Commerce. “I was not so serious about getting 10 CGPA. But I would study regularly. I want to take up Commerce with Maths and pursue Chartered Accountancy,” he said adding that all subjects were conducted out of 90 marks, except 70 marks for English. There was also 20 marks on assessment of speaking and listening.

Explaining the CGPA which is based on grades, he said if a student gets A1 which is the top grade in all the five subjects, then he will get 10 CGPA. One can also get 10 CGPA with upgradation. The upgradation system was started in 2009.“If we do well in extra curricular subjects like electrical and electronics or arts. It is also related to our behaviour and attendance in school. We would end up getting A1 in all the five subjects. That is an advantage for students,” he said, adding that he received A1 in all the five subjects. Another student B Avantika from Bhavans Rajaji Vidhyashram school, Kilpauk, who also received 10 CGPA said she wants to pursue Commerce with Maths as it will open a wide range of opportunities for her.

Speaking of her grades, she said, “I have worked very hard. The Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation system has helped me a lot. Every move of a student will be observed. We used to have exam every day. I spent two to three hours on studies every day. My favourite subject is Social Science,” she said adding that she equally spent time on dancing. She also loves playing hand ball and volley ball. On upgradation, she said extra-curricular activities like visual communication and small details also are taken into consideration. “If we submit our assignments on time, whether we are punctual and how we behave with teachers and the values we have learnt. This is taken into consideration for upgradation.”

K Geetha a Maths teacher in Kendriya Vidyalaya, Anna Nagar, which was school-based said a total of 52 students out of 185 have got 10 cgpa. “The cce and upgradation system is very helpful which led many students score 10 cgpa,”she said. Ajeeth Prasath Jain, a Senior Principal said that in his school there were 59 students who received 10 CGPA. “Our A1 and 10 pointers have increased from last year. This upgradation system is very helpful. There are many students who won’t be easily able to achieve 10 CGPA. But, upgradation system made it possible for them to achieve 10 point,” he said.
