Pass percentage of MP Board of Secondary Education’s class 12 students saw an increase after a gap of 4 years. The results were declared on Thursday by school education minister Paras Jain and state education minister Deepak Joshi.
A total 7,70,884 students took MP board’s higher secondary school (HSS) examination. This year 69.33% students cleared the exam, registering an increase of 3.93% compared to last year. Since year 2011, pass percentage never went above 65.
Madhya Pradesh registered the decade’s best pass percentage of 81 in 2008. But since 2009, it has been recording a pass percentage of about 65 (or a little more than that) and experts feel this has been mainly due to the deteriorating academic standards in the state’s schools.
Unlike the previous few years, this time, a boy has topped the class 12 results. Samyak Jain from Saraswati High School, Mandla, is the board exam topper securing 488 marks out of 500 (97.60%). He had Maths Science as his stream and aims to become a mechanical engineer.
The pass percentage of the girls is better than boys. The pass percentage of girls is 73.78% which saw an increase of 4.63% and the same of the boys is 65.81 % which is 2.51 % higher than that of previous year. Maximum candidates (46) in the merit list are from the Maths science stream. Following Maths Science, the second highest list of toppers is from Biology Science stream (40).
The maximum number of students passed in Mandsaur (86.63%) and the lowest pass percentage came from Bhind (13.45%) in the state. State capital Bhopal registered a pass percentage of 76.56% this year.
Another surprising factor in the result this year is the decline of number of students who have passed with first division. In 2015 about 2.07 lakh students passed with first division. However, this year 2.05 lakh students secured first division.
