Pass percentage in CBSE Class 12 exams dropped

Gulf students outshine in CBSE class 12 exams

New Delhi: In 2000, city’s Urdu medium schools registered a dismal pass percentage of 31 for the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class XII examination. A decade later it has shot up to a remarkable 89.12 per cent, which is more than that of government-run and private, unaided schools.

Fighting odds like lack of trained teachers, non-availability of books and crumbling infrastructure, this is the second year in a row that the Urdu medium schools have fared better than others.

Only four years ago the Urdu medium schools in the city registered an overall pass percentage of 66.73.

In 2007, they showed a 12 per cent increase for Class XII results. Last year, the schools had pass percentage of 88.7, a shade ahead of the government schools, which stood at 87.14 per cent.

This year, the government schools in the Capital recorded an overall pass percentage of 88.87.

Two of the 12 Urdu medium schools with senior secondary sections have declared a 100 per cent result: Zeenat Mahal Girls’ School SKV No 2 and GBSSS Zafrabad.

Zeenat Mahal School, whose pass rate stood at 61 per cent in 2006, jumped to 100 per cent in 2008. This year, too, all its 42 students have cleared the exam.

Students credit their teachers for their success.

Ilma Mukhtar, 16, who scored around 88 per cent in the best four subjects said teachers at her school — SKV Jama Masjid No 2 — were very helpful. They often helped translate from Hindi books they were not available in Urdu.

On Saturdays, Ilma said her teachers would help the students with political science, a subject she struggled with. With no trained teachers available for the subject at the school, the authorities arranged with the Directorate of Education to have a teacher from another school teach students.

“Before the start of school, the teachers took an extra class,” Ilma said. “They should publish more Urdu medium books. That’s one area where we are really lagging behind.” Her school has an overall pass percentage of 97 this year.

The teachers have also been trying to convince parents to send their children to school. As most students come from low-income families and cannot afford private tuitions, the teachers in a few schools also hold extra classes.
