DHARAMSALA, 28 July: May: Tibetan schools have yet again performed better than Indian schools at the All India Senior School Certificate Examination (AISSCE) conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for class XII.
Tibetan schools in India have achieved an overall pass percentage of 97.08% which is 4.37% higher than the all-India aggregate of 92.71%. as the results were announced on 22 July.
However, the overall pass percentage of the Tibetan schools has dropped by 2.73% from last year’s 99.81 % which was the highest ever pass percentage recorded so far.
Similarly, only two students have secured the Sikyong Scholarship this year, a significant drop from last year which recorded 27 Tibetan students scoring 95 % and above.
Only two Arts students, Tenzin Woeser from STS Bylakuppe with 95.2 % and Tenzin Choedon from TCV School, Upper Dharamsala with 95 % have cleared the benchmark for this years’s Sikyong Scholarship.
The decline in the number of Tibetan students securing 95% and the drop in overall pass percentage however should not be a cause of concern as the number of students getting 90%+ marks has hit a three-year low in India.
“Not only have fewer students passed the boards but also the number of students getting 90%+ marks has seen a drastic drop,” reports news18.
A total of 1027 Tibetan students from 16 Tibetan schools across India appeared for the exam, out of which 997 students passed the exam.
The toppers of the 2022 Class XII AISSCE exam are as follows:
Science: Tenzin Woeser with 95.2 % from STS Bylakuppe
Commerce: Tenzin Zomkey Gyalpo with 94.2 % from TCV Bylakuppee
Arts: Tenzin Pema with 94.6% from TCV Selakui
For the class X CBSE board exam,1188 students from 27 Tibetan schools appeared for it, out of which 1117 cleared the exam with an overall pass percentage of 94.02 and an average percentage of 63.14.
Last year, the results of class X examinations broke all the past records by producing a cent per cent result. A total of 1226 students from 27 Tibetan schools in India have appeared for the class X board exams.
