More than 68,000 children have scored 100 per cent or A1 grade in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) examinations across the country this year. The pass percentage of students stands at 98.19 this year.

Since last year, CBSE class X examination is being conducted under the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) scheme and the results are reflected in grades. However, this year there are no toppers declared as the board has maintained a uniform grading system across regions.

Class X results for Allahabad, Ajmer, Bhubaneshwar, Delhi, Patna, Guwahati and Panchkula regions were declared on Thursday (May 24) and Chennai results were declared on May 21.

The pass percentage of girls stood at 98.48 compared with 97.98 per cent in case of boys.

“Girls have fared better than boys this year as well. Out of all regions, Chennai has scored the highest pass percentage with 99.45. CCE was conducted in two modes where 60 per cent were school-based and 40 per cent board-based,” said Rama Sharma, CBSE Public Relations Officer.

As many as 3,59,821 students appeared for class X exam in Delhi. Compared with last year, the pass percentage for Delhi has been two per cent higher with 97.92 students qualifying for admission in higher classes.

The results have improved in the capital with only 1.98 per cent children referred for improvement or have failed in two subjects compared with 4.06 per cent referred last year.

Over 2,000 schools represented children sitting for CBSE exams this year with 208 examination centres. Overall 11,79,182 candidates were registered for class X examination this year, which is an increase of 11 per cent over last year.

Around 11 children were caught cheating in exams this year where only one child was caught cheating in Delhi compared to 10 children last year.

Interestingly, government schools have fared better marginally than private schools. “The
pass figure in government schools is 99.02 per cent and private schools is 98.78 per cent. The difference is marginal but this is a great achievement,” said B M Gupta, head of Computer Centre, CBSE.

The board members added that a uniform certificate with the nomenclature grade sheet-cum-certificate of performance will be issued to all candidates of class X who have appeared under the CCE scheme.

Students can also apply for grade verification through 26 schools listed by the board and by filling up verification forms given by the board.
