The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), declared the Class 12 examination results on 28 May 2012. The results this year were a mixed bag of hits and misses, with girls walking away with a bigger chunk of cake.
The pass percentage was registered the highest in the Southern region of India, with a smashing 96.46%. Karnataka and Goa viewed great figures and helped the Southern region race to the first position.
However, the national capital viewed a marginal dip in the pass percentage in comparison to the last year. Over 2.28 Lakh students took the CBSE class 12 examinations in the Delhi region , with an 85.40 pass percent.
This year, a total of 1.09 lakh girls sat for the exams where 98,185 of them passed. Of the total 1.19 lakh boys who appeared for the exams, 96,916 of them passed, taking their pass percentage to 81.14 down from last year's 81.58 per cent.
If you aren't a believer of the 'rags to riches' tale, this may be your time to start believing it. Mohammad Ismat, an economically not so stable boy , hailing from Manipur, became the first ever all-India topper in the CBSE exam from the region, scoring 495 marks out of 500. The parents and the family seem to be ecstatic for his success.
Students who want to apply for rechecking can do so online within five days from the declaration results by remitting a DD for Rs. 300 per subject.
Jagran Josh wishes all the students a hearty congratulations and an all the best for their future endeavors.
