HYDERABAD:As the state government is all set to release SSC results on Sunday, the newly introduced Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) is going to play a key role in deciding grades of the students.

Though the 20 percent internal marks alone may not help students pass the exam, but they are the key factors in deciding their grades. Students must score more than 35 percent in both the internal and final exams to pass the exam.

Since the schools have an authority to award 20 percent of marks in almost all the subjects, private schools have a chance to keep the grades of their students at high level. This was the major drawback of CCE. Several teachers’ unions opposed the concept of internal marking saying, it can unbalance the competition between students from government schools and private schools. However, the government has decided to go ahead with the CCE. A top official from the School Education Department said, “several representations have been received for withdrawal of CCE. But we had to go ahead with it, as almost half of the academic year was over. The government is planning to continue it for two more years. It can be withdrawn if it is found ineffective,’’ he added.

This year the results will be given in grade point average (GPA) instead of marks. Current grading system includes internal marks which will carry 20 marks in all subjects except second language paper.

The results will be released by deputy chief minister and education minister Kadiyam Srihari at 11 a.m. at the secretariat. Students can check their results on the official website of SSC Board, This year, around 5.60 lakh students appeared for the exam from 5,589 government schools and 5,144 private schools. Nearly 40 percent of the students were from private schools, according to the school education department.
