My results are out, I've got 8.43 (667 out of 800). No one is able to predict TCE exam results, a puzzling one for decades. The results this time is good for everyone, I suppose.
The grading system in TCE is strange. Lemme try to explain. The one whose total score is higher than someone else gets (most of the times) a lesser grade than the other one. This time it happened to me and has hit me down. The grading system goes like this,
|90 - 100||S||10|
|80 - 89||A||09|
|70 - 79||B||08|
|60 - 69||C||07|
|.. goes on ..|
That is, for example, if one gets his mark in the range (60 to 69) the grade will be C and so on for others. The serious point to note here is that, there is no difference shown between the students whose socre lies in the range 60 and 69. Both of them gets the same grade. Consider a situation, where the student A get his marks as 79 and 79 in two papers and student B gets 70 and 80 in the same respective papers. The total of student A will be 158 and that of student B will be 150. But when compared under the grade system students B (17 points) gets a higher grade than student A (16 points). This should not be the case and it seems to undergrade some students. This has happened to me this time and has happened to many of my friends (myself too) in the last few semesters. I donno whether the grading system is taken from Anna University. Who should be blamed for this ?? Has the officials not noticed abt this and no actions were taken ??
