The Class 10 results which were announced by the Central Board of Secondary Education on Tuesday came as a surprise for Delhi’s government-run schools because they were shockingly below expectations.
With only 78.62 per cent students passing the exam in Delhi, the result is said to be the worst in the last one decade. Though the national pass percentage is pegged at 86.70, Delhi’s performance is recorded below it by 8.08 per cent
Contrary to class XII results of the same schools, they showed the students in poor light. The Aam Aadmi Party government which had gone on celebrating mood for the good show in Class 12 results, but now is trying to look for some alibi. While this year’s class 10 results of a number of schools witnessed quite a remarkable nice numbers, an overall fall was evident in the performance of Delhi government schools.
A report in a leading English daily of the capital claimed that the CBSE Class X exams have offered a massive decline in the performance of Delhi government schools after about seven plus years. It is a drastic downfall of the level of studies in those schools after the state government had spent a massive budget on the upkeeping and infrastructure, of late.
Contrary to the results, the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia has lauded these institutes for a comparatively better performance in the performance of these results. He also viewed that this year the government schools in Delhi have the lowest pass percentage among all categories of schools.
Quoting official data on the XII result of CBSE, Delhi Government and CBSE data, a spokesman of the opposition party claimed that even it was not a better one than the Congress rule. It says the overall number of students appearing in board exams have fallen drastically. 1.39 lakh students had appeared for the exams in 2013 when the Congress was in power, but last year, the number had fallen to 1.23 lakh students, it says.
