Chandigarh, May 19
The overall pass percentage recorded for the Panchkula region comprising Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Chandigarh and Jammu and Kashmir is down by 3 per cent against 80 per cent last year.
The overall pass percentage of boys is 73.51 per cent that is 10 per cent lesser than girls. Out of 1,12,000 candidates appeared from the Panchkula zone, 83.48 per cent of girls passed the examination as compared to the 73.51 per cent boys.
The school-wise analysis reveals that the Navodya Vidyalya group is leading the chart with 95.02 per cent which is followed by the Kendriya Vidyalya group with a pass percentage of approximately 90.96 per cent. Government schools recorded an over all pass percentage of 79.47 per cent while independent schools recorded 77.61 per cent.
While academicians are offering different reasons for the dip in results, CBSE officials hold the poor attendance rate of boys in schools as the key reason for them securing lower results.
“It has been found that boys were skipping their normal classes in the name of extra tuitions, outside the schools which could be the possible reasons for poorer result,” said DR Yadav, Regional Director, CBSE
Yadav said: “It is after a very long spell that the result of government schools was better than private schools. In wake of the skyrocketing prices, a large number of students were shifting to government schools”.
