The Cen­tral Board of Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion ( CBSE) de­clared its Std X re­sults on Satur­day, and for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year, the over­all pass per­cent­age has dipped com­pared to the pre­vi­ous year.

With a pass per­cent­age of 96.36%, girls out­shone the boys yet again. On the other hand, more boys scored a per­fect 10 CGPA than girls. As many as 85,316 boys scored a per­fect 10 CGPA, while 83,225 girls got that score. The over­all pass per­cent­age came down from last year’s 97.32%. Thiru­vanan­tha­pu­ram re­gion boasted of the best re­sult, with a 99.87% pass per­cent­age. The sec­ond po­si­tion went to Chen­nai re­gion, which in­cludes Ma­ha­rash­tra, with a pass per­cent­age 99.69%.

Navy Chil­dren’s School prin­ci­pal Mal­lika Subra­maniyam said, “Our school’s re­sult was ex­cel­lent. As many as 100 stu­dents scored 9 CGPA and 30 scored 10. The re­sult is bet­ter than last year. If the coun­try’s over­all pass per­cent­age has come down, I don’t see any spe­cific rea­son, as the CBSE Std X cur­ricu­lum wasn’t changed. Stu­dents from dif­fer­ently- abled cat­e­gory, who dropped other sub­jects, have done well in op­tional sub­jects such as paint­ing, music, IT etc.”

Dip­shika Sri­vas­tav, prin­ci­pal of And­heri’s Ra­jhans Vidyalaya, said, “There is no spe­cific rea­son why the pass per­cent­age came down.” The num­ber of can­di­date reg­is­tered across 10 re­gions – Ajmer, Bhubanesh­war, Chandigarh, Delhi, Guwa­hati, Madras, Patna, Allahabad, Thiru­vanatha­pu­ram and Dehradun – also went up this year. Last year, 13,73,853 stu­dents reg­is­tered. This year the num­ber was 14,91,293. While the over­all pass per­cent­age in the coun­try saw a dip com­pared to last year, the pass per­cent­age in Ma­ha­rash­tra went up. In 2015, the pass per­cent­age in Ma­ha­rash­tra was 99.46%, which jumped to 99.68% this year.

From Chen­nai re­gion, which in­cluded Andhra Pradesh, Te­lan­gana, Kar­nataka, Goa, An­daman and Ni­co­bar Is­lands, Da­man and Diu, Puducherry, Ma­ha­rash­tra and Tamil Nadu, Ma­ha­rash­tra stood at the fifth po­si­tion. The pass per­cent­age of girls in Ma­ha­rash­tra was 99.78%, whereas among boys it was 99.61%.
