The success of a student is measured in terms of marks. We live in a society where marks matter. Marks are just the basic numbers that a student gets on the basis of its knowledge, understanding, remembering, and learning compatibility. In schools and colleges these days there is very tough competition between the students to secure good marks. Some exams and some papers are so difficult that even getting passing marks is also so difficult.
Marks- The major criteria for students
Marks are just the numbers that are given to the students on the basis of the exams. These exams are just held to judge your ability, and you get marks according to it. Different exams have different passing criteria and percentages or CGPA. Every school or college has its own passing criteria. Like for schools, the passing percentage is 33%, and for the colleges, the passing percentage is 50% or 5 CGPA.
Marks and CGPA
Marks do not give any knowledge, but in today’s time, marks have so much importance. As said earlier, the marks are just the criteria to judge the student on the basis of their knowledge, thinking, learning, and upon their hard work.
The full form of CGPA is Cumulative Grading Points Average. CGPA is defined as the average grade point that is obtained in all subjects. Mostly CGPA’s are used in colleges and ICSE boards. Every country has its own CGPA system, like India has its own CGPA system.
Importance of marks
Marks play an important role in a student’s life. It doesn’t matter in which form are the marks allotted.
It is very much important for the students to score good marks and CGPA in schools and colleges. Good marks are required in the schools for higher education because the marks of class 10th and class 12th are considered important for colleges. As in 2021, many colleges like in Noida.. prepared their merit list for admissions in different departments on the basis of class 10th and class 12th results. Students who secured good marks were easily able to get college. For them, these marks proved to be a good option in times of COVID-19.
It is also very important for college students to get a good CGPA or good marks in colleges because marks are important criteria for the students to get placement in big companies or MNC’s. Big companies or top MNC’s also prefer students with 7-8 CGPA or 70%-80% in overall B.Tech programs. So, for them, marks or CGPA are proved to be important, and students are easily filtered on the basis of marks or CGPA for final placement and jobs.
