HYDERABAD: Telangana achieved a record-high pass percentage in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class X results, which were announced on Tuesday. Of the 31,607 candidates who appeared this year, 31,605 candidates passed this year, taking the passing rate to 99.99 per cent up from last year’s 99.21. 

This academic year, 17,503 boys and 14,104 girls had appeared for the exams, and unlike previous years, the pass percentage for both boys and girls is 99.99 per cent. Last year, girls had outscored boys with a pass percentage of 99.51 per cent, while it was 98.97 per cent for boys. The CBSE results were prepared based on an alternative means of assessment as the examinations couldn’t be conducted owing to the pandemic.
