Dip in zero pass percentage

A total of 42 PU colleges in the state registered the dubious distinction of having zero percent pass. A significant drop compared to last year’s figure of 78 colleges which had failed to secure passing marks for even a single candidate. Out of the 42 colleges, nine colleges are government PU colleges while the rest are unaided institutions.

Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Vishweshwara Hegde Kageri said that although there was an overall improvement in the performance of Government colleges, the reason for the state run colleges standing last in the overall performance was down to the admission policy.

“Unlike private institutions, government colleges give admissions to everybody and we do not say no to anyone. This is a fact and can be directly linked to the poor performance of candidates,” he said.

He added that despite this there were only nine colleges which had zero pass percentage and the fall in number was a credit to the government PU colleges.
