As many as 750 institutions record 100% success, five times more than the previous year
Kendriya Vidalayas and the schools under the Central Tibetan Schools Administration have achieved a 100 per cent pass percentage as against 99.23 per cent and 93.67 per cent respectively last year.
The board exams were cancelled this year in view of the aggressive second wave of COVID-19.
The board has directed that the schools may be inspected in such a manner that at least each category of schools -- private, government, KVS and NVS -- is covered.
Yash Handa, a student of KR Mangalam World School, Gurugram, termed the CBSE's decision as a big relief.
The board has directed officials to carry out "sudden inspection" without providing schools any prior information regarding their visit.
It has also said moderating the marks in consonance with the overall average score of the district, national, and state average 'was absolutely unreasonable, illogical and punitive'.
The decision comes as India is struggling to control the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
