A year after a steep decline in pass percentage, Panchkula region, comprising Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and Chandigarh performed well this year in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE)’s Class 10 results by improving its pass percentage by six percent.
In 2018, a change in the evaluation pattern and paper leak controversy took a toll on the region’s performance as it recorded 87.65% pass percentage against 98% registered in 2017.
As per the CBSE result declared on Monday, the region recorded an overall pass parentage of 93.72, a hike of little over 6% against last year’s figure.
Panchkula region is ranked fourth after Thiruvananthapuram (99.85%), Chennai (99%) and Ajmer (95.89%) that has the highest pass percentage in the country. Experts say that last year, the decline in pass percentage was linked to two major factors— one was the change in examination pattern that was returned to annual examination marks system from grade-based continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE). Then there was a row over leak of mathematics paper. The board had later decided not to re-conduct the paper following internal deliberations and protest by students. This year, schools adjusted well to new exam pattern.
The number of compartment cases in the Panchkula region have also gone down from 26,000 in 2018 to 14,000 this year.
J&K HAS HIGHEST PASS PERCENTAGE
As many as 2.54 lakh students from the region appeared in the Class 10 exam, of which 2.38 lakh students cleared the exams. Jammu and Kashmir had the highest pass percentage at 98.51% followed by Himachal (97.28%), Haryana (94.18%), Punjab (93.85%), and Chandigarh (84.05%). The girls performed much better than the boys as 96.33% girls passed the exam against 91.84% of boys. The Kendriya Vidyalayas in the region have a better pass percentage as compared to state government and private schools. In KVs, 99.78% girls and 99.71% boys passed the exam while pass percentage in private schools for boys and girls was 92.24% and 97.35% respectively.
