Nagpur Divisional Board has recorded 99.62 percent result in the HSC, announced on Tuesday. High percentage was expected as the results have been computed based on data provided by the junior colleges. Even the result of repeaters is 99.44 percent.
As usual girls have over scored this year too with 99.72 percent pass, against 99.51 percent by boys. The trend can be seen in all the six districts of Nagpur Division. Chandrapur has recorded highest pass percentage of 99.82, followed by Gadchiroli (99.73%), Nagpur (99.61%), Wardha (99.59%), Bhandara (99.54%) and Gondia (99.37%). In all the districts the pass percentage of girls is higher compared to that of boys.
Gondia, which has lowest pass percentage among the freshers, is on the top among the repeaters. The result of repeaters is 100%. Among the repeaters the overall pass percent of boys is 99.47, while that of girls is 99.39%. The reasons could be large scale drop-out among girls at this level.
The stream-wise result in the division is – Science – 99.43%, Arts – 99.86%, Commerce – 99.95% and Vocational – 99.61%.
With very high percentage of passing, admission to various courses is likely to be very tough. Professional courses, particularly engineering, may find this result a welcome season. Almost half of the engineering seats had remained vacant earlier. There could be rush for the engineering courses this year. The entrance tests for various professional courses will be able to decide, who are actually capable of pursuing these courses.
The classes for Std XII were held on-line and examinations could not be conducted by the Board, due to Covid19 pandemic. The meritorious students are not happy with the manner in which the results were computed. However, those who were finding it difficult to clear the examinations or those who had very low scores, are happy with it.
In all 140859 students had enrolled for the examinations and all have been shown to have ‘appeared’. Of them 65,765 students appeared in Distinction Grade (46.68%) , 63899 in Grade-I (45.36%), 10550 in Grade-II (7.48%) and 110 in Pass Grade (0.078%).
Highest number of students have passed in Distinction Grade. The result is exactly in the reverse order compared to earlier ones, as only 110 students have passed in Pass Class and most in distinction grade.
