Siliguri, May 23: The average pass percentage in the Plus II level exams in 15 CBSE schools in and around Siliguri has touched 90.38, surpassing the national average of 81.71 per cent.

This year the pass percentage in the region went up by six per cent from 2010 when it was 84.46. The national average has also increased this time, by 1.84 per cent from 79.87 last year.

“We have compiled the CBSE XII results of all the schools (in Siliguri subdivision). The compilation shows that the pass percentage has increased but the number and percentage of students who failed or got compartmental have come down. This indicates the improvement in the quality of education imparted in these schools,” said S.S. Agarwal, principal of Siliguri Model Senior Secondary School.

Agarwal said only 39 (2.57 per cent) of the 1,517 students who appeared in the exam in the subdivision failed this year while another 107 (7.05 per cent) got “compartmental marks” (failed in one or two subjects). Those who have got “compartmental” will have to appear only for those subjects the next year.

In 2010, of the 1,377 students who appeared for the CBSE XII exams in Siliguri subdivision, 59 (4.28 per cent) had failed while 155 (11.26 per cent) had got “compartmental”. The total number of students who passed the exam was 1,163 in 2010. It has increased to 1,371 this year.

At Delhi Public School Siliguri, where 190 students appeared for the exams in three streams, the highest score in the science stream is 97.2 per cent. The highest score in commerce stream is 96.9 per cent. More than 10 per cent of the students of the school, that is 18 students, have scored more than 90 per cent marks.
