CBSE announces Class 10 results: pass percentage down by 6%
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Saturday announced the Class 10 results for Allahabad, Chennai, Delhi, Dehradun and Thiruvananthapuram regions on June 3.
The board has also tied with search engine Bing to display the results.
The results have come after a controversy over the moderation policy of the board. In April, the board had decided to scrap the moderation policy, which elicited a court intervention advising against the scrapping.
The national capital saw a fall by 13.67% in its performance this year. From 91.76% in 2016, the pass percentage plummeted to 78.09 in 2017.
Last year, CBSE had released Class 10 results on May 28. This year, the release of the results got delayed due to the marks moderation policy, which CBSE wanted to avoid. However, due to High Court order, they will continue with marks moderation this year.
