After declaration of Class 10 results, the overall pass percentage is 99.04 and over 2.5 lakh students scored above 90% in a year shadowed by the pandemic. The Board said that a merit list will not be released this year.

“Heartiest congratulations to all young friends who have cleared the CBSE Class 10 examinations. I wish for their healthy and bright future. To my friends who did not meet expectations this year, I urge them to not lose heart and continue working hard. Success will surely follow.

“The last one-and-a-half year has been challenging for everyone, particularly for our students, teachers and parents. I compliment all, especially our young friends, parents, teachers, academics and CBSE for making this day possible,” Pradhan said in a series of posts.

The pass percentage increased by over seven percentage points against last year’s 91.46 per cent. The difference between the pass percentage of girls and boys was 3.7 per cent last year.
