Delhi chief minister expressed happiness over government schools’ performance in Class 12 CBSE exams and said that the education model in the national capital has scripted history today. Kejriwal’s comments came after 98 percent of students (97.92 percent) across Delhi government schools passed the Class 12 CBSE exams.

“Amid the pandemic, I have good news for you. Delhi’s kids have done a wonderful job by achieving 98 percent pass percent in CBSE Class 12 exams,” Kejriwal said. The chief minister said he believes this is an unprecedented feat. “I don’t think the combined CBSE Class 12 result of states across India could have ever matched this figure in our history,” he stated.

The chief minister said that of total 916 government schools in Delhi, over 300 schools have reported 100 percent pass results in CBSE Class 12 exams this year.

“Ever since the Aam Admi Party has formed the government in the national capital, the results have been improving constantly,” Kejriwal said.

The chief minister described the results as a proud moment for Delhi government and said that the students studying in Delhi’s government schools have shown that they are no less intelligent than anyone.

“These changes were not just the outcome of work done on our part but also by the teachers, students and their parents. We changed the environment and provided facilities for kids to learn and teachers to teach,” he added.
