A total of 193 students scored 100 per cent marks in the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) Class X examination, for which were declared today.

The officials of State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary said the reason behind the increase in the number of students scoring cent per cent marks could be because they got benefit of extra marks under the arts/drawing and sports quota.

While the sports quota was already existing, the board this year introduced arts/drawing quota, which led to the increase in the number of students scoring 100 per cent marks.

Last year 39 students had scored 100 per cent.

A pass percentage of 88.74 was registered in in the of this year's Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examination.

A total of 81,736 students benefitted due to newly introduced arts/drawing quota, while 3,903 students got benefit of the sports quota.
