The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced the results for Class XII on Monday.
Girls have fared better than boys and the all India pass percentage was 88.78%i, an increase of 5.38% compared to last year.
The Trivandrum region recorded a pass percentage of 97.67, followed by Bengaluru at 97.05 and Chennai at 96.17.
As many as 11,92,961 candidates took up the examinations. A total of 38686 students secured over 95% marks in all the subjects.
The board had last week announced an alternate assessment scheme for classes X and XII after the pending exams were cancelled in view of a spike in COVID-19 cases.
As per the assessment scheme of the CBSE, students who have completed all their Class XII examinations, will be assessed based on their performance in the examinations.
For students who wrote exams for just one or two subjects, the results will be declared on the basis of their internal, practical or project assessments, for the subjects they didn’t write the examination.
For those who have appeared in three or more subjects, the average of marks obtained in best three subjects will be awarded to those subjects in which examinations were not conducted.
The CBSE will give students of class 12 an option to improve their scores later through pen and paper examination when the situation is conducive.
