In the recently declared Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class XII exams 2014, Chennai has the highest number of schools scoring the highest average aggregate leaving behind Delhi on the fourth spot, with only one school in the list of Top Eight. Chennai tops the chart with three of its DAV schools leaving behind The Heritage School Gurgaon trailing at the fourth spot.
The list was prepared on the basis of average aggregate of the schools under CBSE which included all the private schools and the Kendriya Vidayalaya. The eight schools which made the mark had an average aggregate of 90% and above (English and best four subjects). Taking states into consideration, here too Tamil Nadu got the lead with highest average aggregate of 80.7%. This year the highest scoring schools are not only from the metros but are from Satna in Madhya Pradesh and Jalgaon in Maharashtra, where 100% students have scored more than 80% marks.
The three DAVs from Chennai have an average aggregate of 91%, 90.7 % and 90.6%, while the Gurgaon School’s average aggregate remained at 90.5%. Overall, 1.59 lakh ( 27.8%) students scored more than 80% marks in aggregate while 51,000 students(9%) scored 90% and above marks, which is a record in the history of CBSE. The number of CBSE schools which recorded an average aggregate of 80% and above is 554 which is again a new high in their record book.
While taking the analysis down to school level, there are 46 schools in which more than 50% students have scored an aggregate of 90% or above. Delhi has nine schools while eight are from Chennai, six from Bangalore, two from Kolkata and one from Mumbai, in the list. In this category eleven schools are from Delhi- NCR and surprisingly Hyderabad has missed the cut. In addition, there are 711 schools in total where more than 50% of students have an aggregate score of 80% and above.
