Kolkata: The West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) announced the results for Class XII students based on an evaluation pattern decided by the state-appointed expert committee and the council. The results were declared 45 days after the West Bengal government decided not to conduct Madhyamik (Secondary) and Uchcha Madhyamik (Higher Secondary) examinations this year for the Covid-19 pandemic.
WBCHSE president Mahua Das said, “Of the total 8,19,202 students, 97.69 per cent have passed, which is higher than the previous year.”
According to the results announced, a total of 3,19,327 students got in excess of 60 per cent marks, which is lower than the last year’s numbers.
“Among the students who got first division, only 9,013 got more than 90 per cent marks, which is much less than the previous year. Last year, as many as 30,220 students scored more than 90 per cent marks. Interestingly, 84,746 students scored between 80 per cent and 89 per cent last year, which has come down to only 39,350 this time,” Das said.
