    In shocking news to the education ministry of the country, the latest survey conducted by NCERT has showed that majority of the state/Union Territory students are performing below the overall average score in all the subjects. The survey was conducted to document the learning achievements of Class X students in the country. The survey was conducted with a sample size of 2.77 lakh students from 7216 schools across 33 state and union territories.

    NCERT is presently devising a mechanism through which it will be able to give its feedback received from the surveys to the various states, examination boards and schools concerned. The council has also prepared a detailed analysis of its survey which was advertised as Pratham’s Annual Status of Education Report. It is the first ever private audit of school education in rural India.

    According to the survey results, only 41% students of class X were able to answer correctly English, while only 40% were able to answer in Mathematics. Science showed a growth to 43% and for social science the percentage of correct answers was 47%. The best result of 53% was recorded for the Indian languages, where the students were able to give most correct answers.
