There were lots of speculations going around about the date of the result as the educational board had earlier decided to scrap off the moderation policy but the Delhi HC had ordered it to implement it from next year calling it ‘unfair and irresponsible.’ There were rumors that the board would challenge the decision and move to the Supreme Court. But giving relief to the extremely anxious students, the educational body decided to go along with the HC order and published the 12th Board exams earlier this morning. The candidates can check their result at cbse.nic.in or cbseresults.nic.in and can download a copy of it for reference.
Around 10 lakh students had written the exam this year and were eagerly awaiting the results. This year the private schools witnessed pass percentage of 79.27 while the government schools performed better with the pass percentage of 82.29. The girls outshone the boys displaying their incredible women power. The pass rate of the girls is 87.5% while the boys secured 78% pass percentage. They outperformed the boys by 9.5%. Even the physically disabled candidates performed phenomenally with 86.69% pass rate.
The CBSE 12th board was topped nationally by Raksha Gopal, a brilliant student from Amity International School, Noida. She secured 99.6% overall while scoring full marks in three subjects like Economics, Political Science, and English Core. The Union Territory of Chandigarh proudly produced three of the other national toppers, Bhumi Sawant at the second spot with 99.4% marks and Mannat Luthra and Aditya Jain from the jointly securing the third position with 99.2% marks. Quite amusingly all the four toppers are from different streams; while Raksha is from the Arts background, Bhumi belongs to Science stream whereas the third place holders, Mannat and Aditya are commerce students.
While the All India pass percentage dropped by 1% from 83% of the last year, still the number of students securing between 95-100% has increased by 740. This year 10,091 students performed excellently scoring above 95% which was 9,351 last year.
Heartiest congratulations to all the successful students. Students who couldn’t perform well, please don’t lose heart, there is always another chance.
