SSLC supplementary: Rural students fare well

Less than half the students who wrote the SSLC supplementary examination in June have passed.  The results were declared on Thursday.

Students from rural areas have performed far better than their peers from urban areas.
Only 73,336 or 45.35 per cent of 1,61,720 examinees could sail through in the exam, with girls outperforming the boys again. Girls had a pass percentage of 49.16 whereas boys could manage only 43.4. Of 77,022 rural examinees, 37,747 or 48.85 per cent passed.

Only 42.14 per cent urban students could make it, according to D Venkateshaiah, Director of Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB).

The dismal performance of students from Bangalore continued in the supplementary exam too. A mere 33.52 per cent or 9,561 of 28,518 students who appeared for the exam in the City (Bangalore South and North educational districts) could succeed.

Bangalore Rural, however, was the saving grace with a pass percentage of 58.45. In the main exams in April, Bangalore Rural district had stood at 18th place and Bangalore North was 27th.

Surprisingly, Mangalore and Udupi — traditionally the top performers in the main exam — have not done well in the supplementary exam.

Mangalore was at 28th spot with a pass percentage of 35.85 and Udupi 29th with 34.17. In the main exam, Udupi had bagged the first spot with an impressive pass percentage of 89.53. 

Gadag educational district topped the State with 67.5 per cent of its students sailing through. Haveri stood second.
