Secretariat Correspondent: The government is going to bring changes to the grading system for all public exams including Primary Education Completion (PEC) in the country very soon.

The education ministry will replace GPA-5 by GPA-4 to introduce international grading system.

The government took such a decision in principle recently.

Now the results of different universities are being given under Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) where highest Grade Point Average is 4 (80-100 marks) which is international standard.

But, the country’s Primary Education Completion (PEC), Junior School Certificate (JSC), Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC)—are publishing results with highest GPA-5 (80-100 marks).

Officials said students face problems when they go abroad to achieve higher education as their public exams results published are based on the GPA-5 system where the highest grade point is GPA-4 in others countries.

The government is going to introduce international stranded GPA in public exams to reduce suffering of students and maintain international standard.
