We all know that VTU releases its results for both CBCS and NON-CBCS syllabus. But, most of the students don’t what these CBCS or NON-CBCS are.
In order to clear all doubts running around your mind, we have created a complete guide on how to check vtu results in CBCS and what is the difference between non-CBCS.
What is CBCS?
CBCS stands for Choice Based Credit System. In earlier days, I mean the NON-CBCS syllabus, we used to get our exam results in numerical.
For example: If you have written Maths subject for 100 and you got 80. Then on the marks card, you would get 80 itself.
But, in CBCS it’s not like that. In CBCS you will only get grades ranging from O to F.
These grades are based on grade points. More on that later.
‘O’ Grade being the highest of all meaning “Outstanding”
and ‘F’ Grade is the lowest of all meaning “Failed”
“O” will be assigned to students who score 10 out of 10 grade points.
|Grade||Grade Points||Classic Marks|
|A+||09||80 - 90|
|A||08||70 - 80|
|B+||07||60 - 70|
|B||06||50 - 60|
|C||05||45 - 50|
|D||04||40 - 45|
On the above table, you can clearly see what CBCS grade means.
- The only advantage of this new grading system is to sort students easily and to have a clean marks sheet.
- Along with the grading system, CBCS also allows students to select subjects that they are really interested in. So, it will help an individual to improve on their desired skills.
- It doesn’t matter whether a student score 91 and other scores 100. Both will get the same ‘O’ grade.
- It seems unfair to the student who scored 100 out of 100.
