PU results: Mysore pushed from 12th to 15th place

Mysore district, which stood at 12th place in Pre-University performance last year, has been pushed to 15th place this year.

Officials claim that implementation of new syllabus, and poor performance among repeaters are reasons for the steep fall. However, girl students have continued to outperform boys.

DDPI K M Puttu speaking to Deccan Herald, said that this year, Mysore district has recorded 58.96 pass percentage results, while last year it was 70.70 per cent.

“New syllabus and poor performance from repeaters, and candidates who appeared privately, have resulted in low percentage,” he stated.

He said that due to the new syllabus, lecturers had to rush through completing the portions, leaving them hardly any time for revision and conducting additional exams.

Colleges could not hold group studies and special classes for students who did not do well in the internal or preparatory exams.

This year, around 27,907 fresh candidates from Science, Arts and Commerce subjects have appeared for the exams, of which 17,874 have passed. Puttu said, the fresh candidates results stood at 65.96 per cent.

Only 1,037 repeaters, and private candidates have passed, of the 4,573 candidates who appeared for the exam. Of the 17,806 boys who appeared for the exams, only 8,969 have passed (52.49%), while 10,773 girls out of 16,512 who appeared for the exam, have passed (65.24%). While Science (67.33%) and Commerce (69.44%) students have performed well, and only 47.83 per cent of Arts students have passed, Puttu said they lived up to the expectations.

Of the 13,404 Arts students, only 6,411 have passed. Of the 10,456 Commerce students,  7,260 have passed, of the 10, 456 students; and of the 9,738 Science students who appeared for the exams, 6,070 have passed.
