Subject : Computing of marks for engagement as GDS in light of the Grading System Introduced by the CBSE.

Sir/Madam

The undersigned is directed to refer to DG Posts’ letter No. 17-39/2012-GDS dated 08 Jan 2014 and 21.05.2019, wherein clarification on the computing of marks for engagement as GDS in light of the Grading System introduced by the CBSE was issued.

(a) For applicants with marks, the method will remain the same as is being done now 1.e. their total marks will be worked out by taking into account the marks obtained in the compulsory and elective/optional subjects (other than extra subjects, if any).

(b) For applicants having both Total Marks and Grading Point (i.e. mark list issued with total marks and grading point both), in such cases the method used will be as follows:-

“The candidate’s total marks will be worked out while ignoring the Grading Point; this methodology will ensure that candidate possessing higher marks will be selected.”

(c) For candidates having grades subject-wise, marks will be arrived for each subject (compulsory and elective subjects but not extra subjects), by applying the multiplying factor of 9.5 in the following manner:-
