West Bengal Madhyamik results declared: 100% passed, 90% get first division

79 candidates score 697 marks

Results of Madhyamik (class X), organised by the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE), were announced on Tuesday, with 100 per cent pass rate and 90 per cent getting first division marks. The pass percentage is an all-time record. Last year’s pass percentage was 86.34 per cent.

Kalyanmoy Ganguly, WBBSE president, said that 79 candidates scored 697 marks, and 90 per cent students passed with first division marks. The Madhyamik exams could not be held this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and students were evaluated on the basis of performance in their 2019 class examination in class 9 and internal assessment for every subject in class 10 on a 50:50 basis. No merit list was published. Candidates not happy with the results will be able to sit for tests once the pandemic situation improves, the Board president said.

The number of girl students was higher than boys this year. While 6,13,849 girls were slated to sit for the papers, the number of boys was 4,65,850. A total of 10,79,749 candidates were slated to sit for the exam this year but due to the COVID pandemic, the board had to cancel the examination as advised by experts.

Students can check results by visiting the official websites wbbse.org and wb.allresults.nic.in. Schools can collect mark sheets from 49 camps of the board from Tuesday and from schools only parents will be given the mark sheets.
