Class 11 results declared, 74 percent students clear exams

Srinagar: Girls outshined boys in terms of the pass percentage across the streams in the class 11 annual examinations results of which were declared by the J&K Board of School Education (JKBOSE) on Wednesday.
The annual examination, which concluded on December 9 last year, has registered a pass percentage of 74 percent with 36956 candidates out of a total of 49749 candidates clearing the exams, data compiled by the JKBOSE read.
As per the data, 76 percent girls passed the class 11 annual exams against 73 percent boys, who cleared the exam. A total of 25,840 boys and 23909 girls had appeared in the annual examination out of whom 18816 and 18090 succeeded respectively.
It said that 65 students had remained absent in the exam while as 27 of them had a “disputed eligibility” for appearing in the exam. Also, seven candidates have been disqualified while two of them had their exam cancelled by the board. Interestingly, a lone student resorted to the use of unfair means in the examination.
Private schools in Kashmir, meanwhile, pipped their government counterparts by a pass percentage of 15 percent in this year’s class 11 annual exams, too.
In the recently declared class 12 annual exam results, private schools had registered 16 percent better pass percentage than government schools.
As per the JKBOSE figures, 6482 private school students, who appeared in the class 11 annual exams, have registered a pass percentage of 87 percent against 72 percent pass percent of the 43267 government school students.
Pertinently, there has been an inordinate delay in the declaration of this year’s board results due to the internet blockade in Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370 in August last year. The administration at the JKBOSE was forced to print an unprecedented number of otherwise obsolete result gazettes for the class 10 and 12 annual examination results this year in absence of mobile internet and broadband internet.
It is significant to mention here that the class 11 annual examination results have been declared more than two months after the examination concluded.
