Nearly 82% students, lower than last year’s 83%, cleared the Class 12 board examination 2017 conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), results of which declared on Sunday.

The pass percentage for the Delhi region at 86.45 was higher than the national pass percentage, board officials said. Last year, 87.01% student cleared the exam in the region.

Nearly 11 lakh candidates registered for the Class 12 exams, which were held between March 9 and April 29, this year against 10,67,900 students last year.

Board officials said students scoring in the 95-100% range increased to 10,091 from last year’s 9351.

Girls performed better than boys by 9.5% as out of 4,60,026 girls 87.50% passed and 78% of 6,38,865 boys cleared the exam. The pass percentage of disabled students was 86.69 with 2123 out of 2449 passed.

A Noida girl became the topper in the Class 12 exam and students from Chandigarh were ranked second and third across India. Raksha Gopal, who pursued humanities at Amity International School, scored 99.6% marks to ace the exams.

Last year, Sukriti Gupta of New Delhi’s Montfort School in Ashok Vihar scored 99.4% to top the Class 12 exams. She was a science student.

Science student Bhumi Sawant of DAV School in Chandigarh’s Sector 8 emerged as the second topper with 99.4%. Commerce students Aditya Jain and Mannat Luthra of Bhawan Vidyalaya in Chandigarh both bagged 99.2% to become the third topper.

The results were delayed after a Delhi high court directive on the moderation policy, which the school board struck down for this year. CBSE was directed by the high court to continue with it for at least this year.

CBSE chairperson RK Chaturvedi said the board “will follow the moderation policy” in a statement announcing the declaration of Class 12 results.

Earlier, a CBSE official told the Hindustan Times there will be no ‘artificial’ spiking of marks and that this could result in “a slight dip in scores”.

The moderation policy refers to a practice where students are given extra marks in subjects regarded as unusually difficult, or when there are variations in question paper sets. However, it was noted that such marks are doled out in excess.

The start of Class 12 CBSE exams was delayed from March 1 to March 9 due to assembly elections that were held in 5 states.
