Is grazing emergence same as critical angle?

TANUJ JAIN 24th Feb, 2020

Hi James,

As per my knowledge for CBSE Board the students will be graded for their physical education based on tests conducted by the school. However, it will be included in the mark sheet, but will not have an impact on the overall assessment of the student.
