Subject :  Issue of clarification on computing of marks for engagement as GDS in light of the Grading System Introduced by the CBSE.

Sir/Madan

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

2. Several Circles have sought clarification from this Directorate on the
issue of equivalence of marks in the earlier marking system and current grading system introduced by the Boards to enable them to make selection for the GDS posts. This is because, as of now, both types of candidates are
applying for the same post of GDS, i.e. the candidates who have secured marks in their school examination as well as some candidates who have obtained grades in the corresponding examination. As the applicant with the higher marks has to be selected, a criterion for equivalence between the grading system and the marks system has to be devised.

candidates have equal marks, the candidate having the higher age (older candidate) will be selected.
