My son asked me this question. “How does playing sports benefit one in board exam?”

So I searched and found this interesting news.

According to a government resolution issued by the school education department in 2017, students will now have to

  1. Either participate in any International Tournaments
  2. or Secure one of the top three positions at National-level tournaments to get additional 25 marks in SSC and HSC exams.


  1. Students who participate in National-level sports tournaments
  2. or Win at State-level sports tournaments will get 20 extra marks.


  1. Students who participate in tournaments organized by the State government or any State-level sports tournaments will be awarded 15 additional marks.

“The intention was to ensure that students who excel in sports get a boost in academics. While rest of the rules will remain the same, this change will mean that more students will be able to benefit from the scheme,” said S Kharat, deputy secretary, school education department.

  1. Sports Certificate of Invitational / Memorial / Open / Prize Money League / Ranking competitions will not be considered.
  2. Only the highest Sports Certificate will be considered for Marking.
  3. Sports Certificate of only preceding three years will be considered
  4. Applicant should upload Self-Attested copy of Sports Certificate.
