Are Additional Subjects' marks counted in making the final result ?

Only the percentage of top five subjects are considered in making the final result. But the irony is that if a student is take admission to any institute/ university, in providing their educational data, students have to give the average marks of all the subjects. It means percentage of first top five subjects and average of all the six subjects. Check the point below -

For example -

  • Total subjects in 12th class - 5
  • With Additional Subject - 5+1 =6
  • Scores are -
  • Subject A - 50
  • B - 60
  • C - 40
  • D - 50
  • E - 40
  • F - 30 ( Additional Subject )
  • Total Marks - 360
  • Percentage of Top Five Subjects - 60+40+40+50+50 = 240/360 * 100 = 66.66 %
  • Average Marks of total Subjects - 270 /6 = 45
  • Percentage Score is 66.66 whereas the Average marks are - 45.

So there is a big loss of students in expecting admission in the institution/ Board / university where Average Marks are the educational Criterion.

Conclusion -

  1. Answer - 1 If you have not been able to pass the additional subject, you are pass.
  2. Answer - 2 But you can face some difficulties, if you are seeking for the institute/ college where average marks are considered in the selection criteria.
