After Class-X, the government is contemplating introducing a grading system at Class-XII in CBSE stream. HRD Minister Kapil Sibal said on Thursday the idea had already been mooted and a committee would examine how grading could be introduced at Class-XII. "This is in thinking process. No decision has been taken. After the committee gives it report, it will go the Central Advisory Board for Education and Council of Boards of School Education in India (CoBSE)," he told reporters on the sidelines of a conference on Sarva Siksha Abhiyan and other education programmes.

The government has introduced grading system at Class-X level in CBSE stream from this year. The grading system is based on nine-point scale, starting from A1 (exceptional) up to E2 (unsatisfactory).
