This is a 0.71 percent increase from the pass percentage registered last year, said General Education Minister C Raveendranath while announcing the results here on Tuesday.

“A total of 4,17,101 students out of 4.27 lakh have qualified for higher studies. No moderation has been given this year too and government schools performed better compared to last year,” Raveendranath said in a press conference.  

He also pointed out that students who could not appear for the three subjects due to COVID-19 will get an opportunity to write the exam as regular along with Save A Year (SAY) examinations. The dates of SAY exams will be announced later.

Raveendranath added that the admission to plus one classes will begin only after the announcement of the CBSE and ICSE curriculum before July 15. "The government will ensure that all students will get admission to plus one classes and the admission process will be held online," he said.
