The Patiala district has recorded improvement in pass percentage by 19.8% in Class-10 examination results of the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) on Wednesday.
The district has witnessed a total pass percentage of 84.7% against 64.9% of last year. Of 20,772 students who appeared in the examination from district, 17,593 students have cleared the examination.
In the merit list of 336 students released by the board, 19 students are from schools in Patiala district.
The girls completely dominated the merit list as at least 17 girl students secured merit positions of total 19. Continuing the winning streak, girls bagged the top positions in the district.
Priyanka Rani of Sun Flower Model High School, Patiala, has topped the district with 98.92% marks by scoring 643 marks out of 650.

District topper Priyanka Rani said her hard work has yielded distinctive results for her as she never expected to be part of the merit list. “I studied for more than eight hours every day. I have now opted for non-medical at higher secondary level,” she said.
