The total number of candidates registered for class 10 exams this year in Delhi has also gone down. This year, 3,17,534 students registered for the exam, while a total number of 3,34,906 students registered for the exam last year.

A total of 7,994 students got 10 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA). The results were declared 10 days early as compared to last year.

According to the CBSE, the board was able to declare results earlier due to introduction of on-screen marking system. “The system is designed to strengthen the evaluation process and minimise the scope for errors. It was introduced in class 10 exams for all regions except Thiruvananthapuram region,” CBSE said in a statement.

“The software has been developed in such a way that no question is left unmarked under the system. Hence reducing the scope for errors,” it added. Delhi came ninth with a pass percentage of 98.31 per cent, and Guwahati region is at the bottom of the list with a pass percentage of 92.36 per cent.

A total of 4,313 students have been declared eligible for improvement of performance during the 2013-14 academic session. In all, 2,114 schools in Delhi conducted the class 10 examinations, while the exam was held in 2,074 institutions last year.

This year, not a single case of malpractice was reported during the examinations, while in the previous year, two cases were reported in the capital.

A total of 56,045 students appeared for the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) in Delhi, of which 98.54 per cent qualified the examination. There is a minimal decline in the number of students qualifying the CCE pattern this year as compared to last year’s 98.80 per cent.
