The many students from government schools applied to the examinations compared to the private schools. The students from the government schools were around 1,13,013 while the students from the private schools totalled to 1,01,614.
The increase in the pass percentage is also due to the covid-19 pandemic. A few exams were cancelled due to the rise in the pandemic. As the marks were given based on a special scheme, the pass percentage has witnessed a hike from the previous year.
Many students lauded this approach of evaluation as this enabled them to score higher. Few students have been awarded the maximum mark of 100 as it was the top average in the three subjects. The formula adopted by the board seemed to work out well as the students are happy with their marks.
