The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced class 10 board examination results Friday, July 22. Students who appeared for the exams can check their results at cbseresults.nic.in, results.cbse.nic.in and results.gov.in.
Kerala’s Trivandrum region scored the best while Assam’s Guwahati scored the worst. However, it is noteworthy that Trivandrum had the fewest number of test takers. The highest number of test takers are in the Delhi region.
The overall pass percentage in CBSE class 10 is 94.40%. A total of 21,09,208 students appeared for the examination. Of them, 19,76,668 students passed.
In Trivandrum, the pass percentage is 99.98% while in Guwahati the pass percentage in 82.23%.
The CBSE class 10 exams 2022 were taken in two terms. For theory papers, 30% weightage was given to the first term and 70% to the second. For practical papers, equal weight was given to both terms.
Friday’s results were a rare occurrence as the CBSE hardly ever declares class 10 and class 12 results together.
The CBSE class 12 results were declared earlier in the day. The exams were held from April 26 to May 24. Students were required to secure 33% marks in order to pass the examination.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a message for students on the occasion. He tweeted: “There are innumerable opportunities that await our young Exam Warriors, who passed the CBSE Class XII exams. I urge them to follow their inner calling and pursue subjects they are passionate about. My best wishes for their future endeavours.”
“Some students may not be happy with their results but they must know that one exam will never define who they are. I am certain they will find more success in the times to come. Also sharing this year’s PPC where we discussed aspects relating to exams.”
The Board said CBSE will issue merit certificates to students who have scored the maximum marks in the subject.
