CBSE Class XII Board Results Announced

The results for Class 12 board exams are declared in the cities of Delhi, Allahabad and Guwahati. About 7 lakh students appeared for exams this year across the country and abroad- 4 lakh boys and 3 lakh girls approximately.

CBSE declares results on the results page of its website and has also set up a helpline number to ease the anxieties of the students. The CBSE exam results are announced in phases every year- the first phase saw results for Panchkula, Ajmer and Chennai regions on Wednesday, May 19. Chennai scored the highest overall pass percentage with 92.12% students clearing the exams. The pass percentage for regular students was 81.95% and around 42% for correspondence students.

Girls shone brighter all over again this year with a pass percentage of 85.28% while boys lagged behind with 75.90% only. The overall pass percentage recorded a drop of 1.13% which is 79.87% against 81% last year. But the good part was that the number of cheating cases too registered a drop this year totaling to 43 compared to 58 last year as reported by CBSE spokesperson.

Most of the prominent schools have come out with 100% results but the fall in pass percentage has become a cause of concern for parents and teachers. Steps will be taken to assure that it is not repeated next year by the school authorities and parents. The continuous familiarity to technology and other things has diverted the attention of students from studies to plenty of other things. The increasing exposure at young age to mobile phones, laptops, ipods and other gadgets as well as glamour in television and on internet has caused a precipice of priority. Students must give due importance to studies without compromising on the fun and play quotient as ‘All work and no play makes jack a dull boy’.
