77.47 pc success in SSLC exam

Bangalore, May 6, 2013, DHNS:

Pass ratio in the 2013 SSLC examination increased to 77.47 per cent from 76.13 per cent last year. The results were announced on Monday.

In continuing with the earlier trend, girls outshone boys. Around 85.20 per cent of the girls taking the examination for the first time emerged successful, while the corresponding figure for boys stood at 80.59 per cent. Among repeaters, pass percentage among girls was recorded at 35.51 per cent as against 31.19 per cent among the boys.

Sudheendra M S of Vijaya High School here topped with 622 marks out of 625. “I am really happy with my performance and thankful to my parents and my headmistress. Even though I have been a topper since class I in my school, I was shocked when I first heard that I had topped in the State.

I studied for three to four hours in June. However, as the examination neared, my effort intensified. By February, I was studying for around seven to eight hours daily. I had some difficulty in science, but everything else was okay. I want to become a chartered accountant. For PUC, I want to study at Vijaya Main College, RV Road. I like reading and watching cricket. Virat Kohli is my favourite cricketer,” he said.

Karnataka State Secondary Education Examination Board has set a record by announcing the results within 26 days of the examination.  The examination was held between April 1 and April 10 and evaluation commenced on April 15.

Chikkodi district has recorded the highest pass percentage of 89.86, followed by Mandya (88.56 per cent) and Udupi (87.68 per cent). Performances here improved drastically as Chikkodi was ranked fifth and Mandya eighth last year. Udupi, which topped the list last year, has slipped two places.

Bidar showed no improvement from last year as the district recorded a lowest pass percentage of 67.95 among all districts. Besides, Sirsi, which recorded the second position in 2012, was ranked 24th while Mangalore, which occupied the seventh position last year, was ranked 26th.

Meanwhile, students in 35 unaided schools failed to meet any success. Board  director Venkateshaiah said: “Since all these schools are unaided, student enrolment will come down drastically.
