Grading System

  1. Assessment of theory/practical papers in external subjects shall be in numerical scores. In addition to numerical scores, the NWAC shall indicate grades in the mark sheets issued to the candidates in case of subjects of external examinations. In case of internal assessment subjects, only grades shall be shown.
  2. Letter grades on a six-point scale shall be used. The conversion chart for conversion from one out of marks, grade and GPA is mentioned below:
  3. A student obtaining less than 33% marks in any subject shall be considered ‘FAIL’ in that particular subject.

  4. The grades shall be derived from scores in case of subjects of external examination. In case of subjects of internal assessment including practical examinations, the schools shall submit the scores of that internal assessment to NWAC Regional Agency who shall in turn award the respective grades.
