The second-year Intermediate Public Examination results announced on Friday were a reflection on the privatisation of plus-two education in the city as the overall pass percentage in government junior colleges was a measly 52. The overall pass percentage of 65.36 was two points higher than that in 2011-12. Girls performed slightly better than boys in general as well as vocational streams. Of the 10,08,660 who appeared for the examination, nearly 25 per cent scored A-grade.

Visakhapatnam district has the highest pass percentage of 77 among regular candidates in the general stream while Krishna  registered an overall pass percentage of 77  among regular and private candidates. Mahbubnagar continues to perform poorly and remain at the bottom of the table with a pass percentage of 49 in the general stream.

The highest marks in the MPC stream were scored by M.Sai Kumar Reddy (991/1000) and in the BPC stream the highest total was 987. Of the 3.7 lakh MPC students, 75.37 passed while just 38.31 of HEC candidates passed out.

Candidates can ask for a photocopy of the answer sheet and re-verification of the paper on payment of ` 600 at e-Seva or APOnline centres. Students can also opt for re-counting of the marks on payment of Rs 100. The last date for payment of fee  is May 7.
