Importance of Grading System for SEE Class 10

The current grading system in Nepal was created as most countries introduced and created importance in the grading system. So to make it easier for the students of Nepal to apply to International universities, a grading system was introduced. Also, during the percentage system, many students used to fail. But in the grading system, average marks are taken from each subject, unlike in the percentage system, fewer students fail.

The primary motto of introducing the grading system is to discourage the definite marking system, which demotivates students, but it is sadder when people convert the grades into percentages. This way, again, the comparison starts. Many people don’t still understand the value of the grading system. The best thing about the grading system is that it doesn’t categorize students as failed students. This way, no students get demotivated and discouraged.

Other universities also are adopting this grading system. Various universities and education boards are currently implementing different grading systems.

The grading System doesn’t define anyone as the best or the worst. The grading system puts everyone in a similar category and reduces student competition, preventing unnecessary pressure and tension.
