Chandigarh, July 15
The city stands at the second last spot in the region in terms of pass percentage in the CBSE Class X results, which is a cause of worry for local educationists.
According to the regional data, UT’s pass percentage remained at 86.21, which is marginally better than Ladakh’s 86.02 per cent — the lowest in the region.
Though there is a huge gap between the numbers of students appeared, other states did quite well to remain ahead of Chandigarh.
Jammu & Kashmir is the top performer with a pass percentage of 98.29 and Punjab also fared well with 92.12 per cent (average).
In Chandigarh, a total of 15,759 students appeared for exams out of which 13,586 passed. As many as 85.44 per cent boys passed while girls have a pass percentage of 86.71. In Ladakh, a total of 640 students passed the exams out of 744 who appeared. The pass percentage for girls is 91.14 and 80.23 for boys.
“The Administration and private schools have to take this record into consideration. We have the second highest number of students in the region, as per the CBSE bifurcation. Having a vast infrastructure, management and expertise, we should have been on the top,” said an official on the condition of anonymity.
Region-wise 9th spot
The Chandigarh region, which includes Punjab, Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir, remained at the 9th spot with a passing percentage of 91.83, while the Panchkula region, which includes Haryana and Himachal Pradesh, bagged the 6th position with 94.31 per cent.
Girls outshine boys — marginally
In Chandigarh, 8,083 boys and 7,676 girls appeared for the exams. As many as 6,930 boys (85.44 per cent) and 6,656 girls (86.71 per cent) passed the exams.
