Class X results: Delhi govt schools fare better than pvt counterparts

With its students faring better than they did in last year's Class X CBSE exams, Delhi government schools are giving private schools a run for their money.

Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday, in a tweet, lauded the schools for their improved show.

"Delhi govt schools get 92.44% in Class 10 results; this is 3.19% higher than 2016 and 1.5% higher than CBSE national avg. 428 students of Delhi govt schools have got 10/10 CGPA and 282 schools have got 100% results," Sisodia's tweet read.

In the past few years, the quality of education and infrastructure in Delhi government schools has markedly increased.

Having performed better than their private counterparts, this is seen as another feather in the cap for Delhi's government schools.

This is seen as a surprising trend across academic circles.

With respect to overall pa percentage in CBSE Class X results, Delhi registered a dismal 78.09 per cent, 13 per cent less than last year's pass percentage.

This is the first the Capital has registered such low numbers. Many major cities have recorded an overall pass percentage of above 90 per cent.

"A 13 per cent dip is very big and Delhi schools should reflect on this," says a concerned mother whose son has passed the examination but is concerned about her daughter who will give exams next year.

Sushant Verma, who passed the Class X exam, says, "I have got 9.0 CGPA and hope to study Commerce in Class XI, though I am concerned about my friends who haven't secured as high marks as I have".
