WBCHSE likely to introduce percentile system for Class XII students from 2013
West Bengal Higher Secondary Council (WBCHSE) has proposed for introducing a percentile system for its students from the next academic session. The council will implement the system from 2013 after getting approval from the government.
The academics of the WBCHSE realized that their students have to suffer during college admissions due to lesser marks specifically in social sciences and literature subjects as compared to the other board students. Even colleges could not set high cut off marks for other board students as the Supreme Court has banned the old system recently which was practiced in West Bengal few years back.
Thus the syllabus reform committee decided to opt for a globally accepted percentile system to become at par with other boards as well as international boards.
The percentile system was chosen over the grade system as due to the stiff competition in colleges students may miss a seat even for a decimal point. So, percentile system was a better option as it eliminates such problem.
The proposal has been presented to the government. It will enable proper evaluation of students. Currently, preference is given to students with high scores during college admissions where students from ISC and CBSE board get advantage over other board students. The WBCHSE class XII students thus felt discriminated as they could not compete with CBSE and ISC boards which grant more marks to the students.
Sources from the committee proposing reform in evaluation system revealed that percentile system will ensure flexibility in exams. Moreover, universities such as Delhi University and University of Mumbai provide admission on the basis of percentiles.
