PM Modi said for those who ‘aren’t happy’ with their CBSE Class 10 and 12 results, he would want them to remember — ‘one exam doesn’t define who you are’.
For class 12, the pass percentage went up from 83.40 last year to 88.78 this year. In class 10 results announced Wednesday, there has been a marginal increase of 0.36 per cent in the pass percentage against last year.
The overall pass percentage recorded was 91.46. However, the number of students scoring above 90 per cent and 95 per cent have reduced this year by 3 per cent and 1 per cent, respectively.
This year only 9.84% of the total students have secured above 90% marks. A total of 18.73 lakh students appeared in the exam, out of which 17.13 lakh students passed.
The number of students scoring above 95% has also decreased. In comparison to last year when more than 57,000 students had secured over 95% in aggregate, this year 41,084 students fall in this category.
