Hi; that's great. But unfortunately, I do not understand what you mean by CGPA and A1. I though marking was out of 500.

CBSE has actually changed itself a lot

CGPA means Cumulative Grade Point Average. A1 is a grade

I didn't realize CBSE utilized the GPA grading scale. Anyways, are you one of the national toppers for grade 9?
