New Delhi: Delhi's
Education Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely Monday said that schools
under the Delhi government have performed the best among
government-run schools across the country in the Central Board of
Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 exams this year.
"This year, 87.72 percent students studying in Delhi government
schools passed the exam compared to 87.54 percent last year,"
Singh told reporters here.
"Performance of government schools of Delhi is once again the best
in the country among all government schools. Pass percentage of
Pratibha schools is 99.07 percent, and 78 government schools
reported 100 percent result as compared to 70 schools last year,"
Central government schools like
Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNV) and Kendriya Vidyalayas (KV) in
Delhi have fared better than private schools in this year's
Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 examination.
At 91.20 percent and 95.53 percent, the pass percentage of JNV and
KVs respectively has been better than of the private schools,
which have a pass percentage of 90 percent, said the CBSE.
The pass percentage of both JNVs and KVs, however, dropped in the
capital -- from 96.52 percent in 2011 to 91.20 percent this year
for JNVs and 95.63 percent last year to 95.53 this year for KVs.
According to the CBSE, "private unaided schools" are schools run
by a society/trust constituted and registered under the provisions
of central/state legislations. While KVs and JNVs are autonomous
institutions which get funding from the central government,
government schools are run by the state government.
The pass percentage of private schools in Delhi has increased from
89.71 percent in 2011 to 90 percent this year.
Government schools in Delhi registered a pass percentage of 87.70
percent this year against last year's 87.53 percent.
Nation-wide, the pass percentage of JNVs has gone down from 96.87
percent in 2011 to 95.96 percent this year, while the KVs have
registered 94.13 percent, up from 2011's 93.42 percent.
Boys were once again outperformed by girls who had a pass
percentage of 90.06 percent as against boys' 81.14 percent.
A total of 1,21,250 students appeared in the examination this
year, a rise of over 9,000 students compared to last year's
