Gangtok, 05 May:
While only eight out of the 88 senior secondary schools in Sikkim affiliated to CBSE scored 100% results in class XII Board exams this year, a majority of the schools posted 75%-plus pass percentage and only a handful posted worryingly poor results.
Two Kendriya Vidyalayas – the ones at Gangtok and Singtam – find themselves in the exclusive club of eight alongside EMRS-Gangyap, JNV-Rohtak, Little Angel School [Nandok], and government senior secondary schools of Luing, Mangshila and Kitam.
There is also a group of 17 schools which have recorded a 90-99% pass percentage while all the remaining schools, save three, have posted 50%-plus results.
The school-wise performance tabulated by the HRD Department reveals that only three schools in the state had less than 50% of their class XII students passing this year’s board exams.
The worst-performing among the bottom-three is JNV-Pakyong which saw only 45.45% of its students passing while 24.24% received compartments and 30.30 failed the board exams.
Government Senior Secondary School, Mangalbaria, had 49.15% of its students passing while 22.03% of the class XII students have compartment results and 28.81% failed.
Similarly, Govt SSS, Perbing, saw 26.09% of its class XII board exam students fail, 26.09% get compartments and only 47.83% of the students pass.
The private candidates who took the CBSE class XII board exams fared rather poorly with only 28.91% of them passing the exams, 54.69% receiving compartment results and 7.43% failing.
Readers would have noticed that there is only private school among the eight schools which posted 100% results this year.
