New course proves costly for class tenth students
Aizawl, Mar 17: Adoption of a new course by the Mizoram Board of School Eduaction (MBSE) last year, has proved costly as the pass percentage of class tenth students is worse than last year.
The pass percentage in 2005 was 45.77, where as the pass percentage this year is 40.49.
''We do not deny that the pass percentage is worse this year.
However, we attribute this to the adoption of a new course last year. In fact, we are quite satisfied with the results compared to the results in past years when a new course was adopted,'' MBSE secretary Laldawngliana said.
According to the results announced today (Mar 17, 2006), out of 9022 candidates, 3558 have passed while 1289 will face compartmental examinations.
Out of the pass candidates, 229 passed with distinction while 748 passed with first division. 1129 have scored second divisions while 14562 have passed with third division.
Another flip side of the results is that there are 70 schools with nil results.
While most of these are private institutions located in rural areas, 17 are Government-run high schools.
