State CBSE schools stand second in Chennai region

As the standard XII CBSE results emerged on Wednesday, Karnataka students recorded a masterly 96.40 pass percentage. Adding punch to this academic feat, the State’s ICSE (standard X) students scored a whopping 99.78 pass per cent. That was not all. A record 99.56 per cent of students cleared the standard XII Indian School Certificate (ISC) examination conducted in March this year. Both the ISC and ICSE examinations are conducted by the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) Board.

However, despite this performance, the emotions writ large on the faces of those who cleared the examinations were mixed. While some sported smiles, there were others whose body language suggested they were not very happy with their results. A number of students broke down when they saw their marks tally.

As results trickled out at the CBSE and ICSE schools, a steady stream of students and parents crowded the institutions. The flow continued well into the evening, with students thanking their teachers who were effusive with their congratulations.

While some students huddled in small groups discussing their future, others consoled friends who scored poorly.

 CBSE Class XII: The Chennai region, comprising Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Andhra Pradesh, Daman and Diu, Goa, Karnataka, Kerala, Lakshadweep, Maharashtra, Pondicherry and Tamil Nadu, has scored an overall pass percentage of 92.06. Goa stood first with 98.37 pass per cent, Karnataka second with 96.40 and Tamil Nadu third with 95.02 pass per cent.

In the Chennai region, as many as 54,000 students had appeared for the examination. Of these, 49,711 students — 26, 726 boys and 22,985 girls — cleared the board examination. Boys secured a pass percentage of 90.40 and girls 94.06.

ICSE and ISC examinations:

As many as 5,921 students from 123 schools in the State appeared for the ICSE examinations, recording a pass percentage of 99.51 percent. Girls secured a pass percent of 99.65 while the figure for boys was 99.38 per cent.

In all, 912 students from 18 schools in the State appeared for the ISC examinations, recording a pass percentage of 99.56.  Girls scored 99.77 percent while boys scored 99.38 percent.
The CISCE had enabled students to pre-register through the Council website to check their results through email or SMS which received an overwhelming response.

Every school principal was provided with a CISCE email ID which facilitated communication within the Council community.
