CBSE Class 10 results 2016 declared, 73 schools register zero pass percentage
With the Central Board of Secondary Education declaring the result of the Class 10 examination on May 28, Manipur state has recorded zero pass percentage.
This year, a total of 14,91,293 candidates registered for the class 10 board examination which shows an increase of around 8.5 per cent students from last year.
The board conducted the examination from March 1 to March 28 at 3742 exam centres across the country.
According to official data, the state of Manipur has recorded a pass percentage of zero in various schools.
Detailed information of Manipur results:
- A total of 6,484 students appeared for the examination from 323 government schools
- As many as 73 of the 323 government schools in Manipur recorded zero pass percentage
- Out of the 22.6 per cent students in government schools, not a single student passed
- Only 2,781 cleared the examination by recording a pass percentage of 42.8
- One student each from 28 government schools successfully passed the examination
Such figures clearly show that Manipur government schools, which consume millions of rupees worth of public funds, performed far worse than private schools.
As per IANS, a highly positioned source said, “The government has taken a serious note of the non-performance of the government schools. The only way out is to abolish some of these schools, so that students could get admission in private schools.”
In 2013, around 28 government schools did not have a single candidate clearing the Class 10 examination.
While speaking to media, Romen Chingtham, father of the student who could not clear the examination said, “I am faced with Hobson’s choice about his studies since I cannot send him to expensive private schools.”
However, the officials of the education department have declined to give any statement on the failure of recording zero few government schools.
Moreover, the government has only one solution to this problem which is closure of non-performing schools.
