This year, the overall pass percentage, too, has risen after five years. As compared to last year, the pass percentage is up by 4.40 per cent. Overall, 91.1 per cent students have cleared the exam. Last year the pass percentage was 88.67 per cent.

To pass the exam, students need to score at least 33 per cent of the total in each subject including the internals and practicals in order to pass. Earlier one had to clear the practical and theory exams separately but now one needs to pass the subject overall. This means the 33 per cent marks are required including the practical and theory or internal and external exam.
