Government has announced to award 3 percent grace marks to the students of 10th class and 2nd year this year as exams were canceled due to coronavirus. A number of students have confusion regarding grace marks. In this article, we will describe the actual method to calculate the grace marks.
First of all, please note that simply 3% marks will not be added to your marks obtained in Part-I. However, 3% of the obtained marks will be added to your marks.
Consider a student got 450 marks in 9th class, which is about 89.1 percent. The student will get the same 450 marks in 10th class + 3% of the 450 which is 13.5 marks, so marks in 10th theory papers will be 463.5.
Formula to Calculate 3 percent Grace Marks in Matric and Inter
Grace Marks = Marks obtained in Part-I × 0.03
Total Marks = (Marks Obtained in Part-I × 2) + (Marks obtained in Part-I × 0.03)
Most of the students are considering that they will get 3% of the total marks, so as in the example above, they think that they will get 89.1+3% = 92.01% which is not correct. 3% of your obtained marks will be added to your marks in part-I of SSC or HSSC.
