The Madhya Pradesh education board has announced a formula for calculating the marks of Class 10 students in the new academic session. According to the new strategy, the results of the students will be prepared on the basis of the best-of five formula. Students will be awarded marks on the basis of five subjects in which she has scored the highest. Even if a student passes in five subjects and fails in one subject, the student will be declared as passed and promoted to Class 11.
This system also comes with its share of disadvantages. It is speculated that most students would pay less attention to difficult subjects and read the simpler ones and pass the class. This is the reason why the state education minister Inder Singh Parmar was initially not in favor of starting this system. However, since the board exams are being canceled from the past two academic sessions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the system had to be launched in order to protect the future of the students.
