“Results have improved this year compared to last year. In 2018, the pass percentage was 72.62%,” Singh said, adding, more improvement would be seen next year, as we are going to take several measures in this regard this year.

“We will provide model question papers for Class 10 and Class 12 students every month from July this year.
