NBSE Grading System

Nagaland Board Grades are preferred to marks as it is felt that marks awarded to a student in any subject are subjected to different kinds of errors in evaluation.

The coverage of content in the question paper, the type of questions set, their difficulty value, inter-examiner variability in the standard of marking are some of the factors that affect the reliability of marks.

Hence, it is felt that a student who scores 65 marks out of 100, maybe anywhere in a wide range of 60 to 70 (depending on the error of measurement).

The Nagaland Board has adopted the following scheme for Relative Grading:

Grade%  of  examineesTerms of performance
         A+Top 1%Truly Outstanding
         A1Next 5%Outstanding
         A2Next 12%Excellent
         B1Next 16%Very Good

         C1Next 23%Above Average
         C2Next 20%Average
