City Affected By Extremism Outperform Others
If we study the city or town wise performance of all the students, students from Khunti district surpassed those from the capital Ranchi and other bigger cities such as Bokaro, Dhanbad and Jamshedpur. Khunti district just 50 km away from Ranchi has always been backward, affected by the Left geo-political extremism. The total passing score in the district was 89.78 outperforming that of other 24 districts in the state. “It is a matter of pride for the students and the education officials in Khunti that the district has performed best in the state. This proves that if you are hard-working and focused, your geographical location doesn’t make any difference,” said Singh.
Girls Do Better Than Boys
In terms of clearing the exams, the Arts students did better than those in Class 12 (Science and Commerce) and Class 10 this year. More than 1, 85,550 students appeared for the Arts exams with 1, 33,507 (71.95%) clearing it. The total passing percentage this year went down by a marginal 2.24 points compared to 74.19% in 2016.
