Girls continued to maintain a large margin over boys in terms of pass percentage, according to results of the Class XII State board examinations for 2014, released on Friday. While the overall pass percentage was 90.6 per cent, it was 93.4 per cent among girls and 87.4 per cent among boys. Girls also stamped their superiority on the ranking charts, with three girls among the four students securing the top three ranks.

The State topper was S Sushanthi of Sri Vidya Mandir Higher Secondary School in Krishnagiri district’s Uthangarai, who scored a whopping 1,193 on 1,200 marks. Close on her heels was A L Alamelu of Sri Vijay Vidyalaya Girls HSS in Dharmapuri, with 1,192

marks. S Nitya of Prince Matriculation HSS in Madipakkam, Chennai, and D Thulasirajan of Green Park Matriculation HSS in Bodhupatty in Namakkal district shared the third rank. Both of them scored 1,191 marks.

The lists of toppers in different subjects too showed a strong presence of girls, especially from smaller urban or semi-rural areas, such as Muthupet, Kannankurichi, Rasipuram, Moolakulam, Nagercoil, Melpalai, Gudalur and Nangavalli among others.

The most striking feature of the results, however, was the manifold increase in the number of centums in physics and mathematics. Physics centums rose a mind-boggling 75 times, while maths centums rose a whopping 65.05 per cent, promising to take cut-off marks for engineering courses significantly higher.

A total of 56.13 per cent of the students secured an aggregate of 60 per cent and above, up from 54.2 per cent last year. Private schools continued to secure substantially high pass percentages than government-run schools. Tribal welfare schools run by the State saw a pass percentage of 84.06 per cent, while Adi Dravida welfare schools scored lowest among all categories with a pass percentage of 81.18 per cent.
