The Inter-Board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC) has decided to curb the race to obtain more marks by introducing a 10-point grade system in 2024. The results of classes 9 and 11 will be announced under the new grading system.

The development of the new grading system has been in the process for years and it has finally been announced for 2024. Contrary to the previous marks-based system, based on a 7-point grading system (A-1, A, B, C, D, E, F), the ten-point grading system includes A++, A+, A, B++, B+, B, C, D, E, U. This system is designed to enhance the assessment criteria and evaluation process for students.

Addressing the IBCC transformative workshop dedicated to the implementation of the new grading scheme for Sindh Examination Boards on November 14, Chairman Ghulam Ali Mallah said “The event witnesses an overwhelming response and reflects the commitment Sindh Examination Boards towards embracing progressive changes aimed at enhancing the quality of education and assessment.”
