CBSE schools have good reason to celebrate: not only was there a rise in the number of students scoring over 90% this year, there was an increase in the number of candidates who got perfect scores in many subjects. It’s not just the overall result, but also individual scores in tough subjects like Chemistry and Physics that are rising, said principals. Even languages usually categorized in the low-scoring bracket have bucked the trend this year. One of my students has scored 99 out of 100 in English, which is a very rare feat. It is good to know that even the board is being lenient with marks, said the principal of a school in Navi Mumbai.
But with even HSC students scoring exceptionally well, students will not find it easy to get into a degree or professional college of their choice. A lot more students are scoring very well in their papers and that is a good sign. In my batch of 192 students, 38 scored above 90%, and 72 between 80-90 % this year, said Deepshikha Srivastava, principal of Rajhans Vidyalaya, Andheri (W). Surprisingly, many students felt let down by their Mathematics marks. The Mathematics paper seemed very easy, but student0s’ scores in the subject were not so great. However, we managed to get a 100% pass rate; students have done well overall, said Jose Kurien, principal of DAV School, Nerul. Commerce students from Ram Ratna Vidya Mandir in Uttan had similar problems.All our students told us that they found the Mathematics paper easy and were expecting a high score if not a perfect 100. But the marks they got were not as high as their expectations, said school principal Timir Sengupta. Media Studies, which was introduced last year, was also a disappointment. Those who had opted for this particular elective were disappointed because they did not score well in this subject. They felt that their overall percentage had come down because of this one subject.Students were not sure what to expect as Media Studies is a new subject, which could explain the low scores, said Avnita Bir, principal of Ram Niranjan Podar High School, Santa Cruz (W). She added that the subject is a little tough. Hopefully, our students will get used to it in the coming years, said Bir. Students will always find some subject or the other a challenge. But over all, there was absolutely no problem in any of the subjects and the examination was conducted very smoothly, said an official from the CBSE Chennai regional office.
