CBSE declared that results of Class X in the early hours today morning. This year, the class X exam was surrounded by many controversies and setbacks like the case of the question paper leakage, re-examination issue etc. But still, the results that came out carried a wind of joy and happiness.
After years of following the CCE system of examination, this years’ batch of Class X students faced the normal board examination once again after the central government decided to revert back to the old system of examination. Over 16 lac students set for the Class X board exams this year. The overall pass percentage mounted to 86.70% this year, and to great dismay, it dropped a level as compared to the previous year. In fact, this year’s overall result marks the lowest pass percentage as compared to many years prior.

Following the same trend, girls remained at the top again too. The overall pass percentage of girls is 88.67, while the boys registered a pass percentage of 85.32.
