Ggrading system was introduced to reduce stress on the students and also bring and end to unhealthy competion among them.
The students at large have welcomed this step (grading system) as it has reduced competion. But very hardworking students who have always topped in school in respective classes felt dicouraged and wanted to know their exact marks. They felt that they have been equated with students much below them. Many students of this category were seen contacting teachers and school administration for finding ways in which they could know their marks.
