In the districts, the highest number of students mass promoted were from Surat with 500 students, followed by Ahmedabad with 420 students and Anand with 352 students.
As against 592 students who were graded under A1 grade in 2020, this year 691 students were awarded A1 grade (91-100 marks).
However, in both A2 (81-90 marks) and B1 (71-80 marks), the number of students declined as compared to the previous year. As many as 9,455 students were graded under A2 and 35,288 students under B1 grade against 10,982 and 40,285 under A2 and B1 grades, respectively, in 2020.
Since there were no examinations, the GSHSEB had declared an evaluation criterion of 50:25:25 marks of Class X board examination, Class XI and XII unit tests.
The board has also kept an option of examination open for students who are not satisfied with their results. Within 15 days of the declaration of the results, Class XII regular students of all streams who are not satisfied with their results have to submit their results with the board.
The board will conduct separate examinations for such students, details of which are still awaited. This will be applicable to all secondary and higher secondary schools affiliated to the state board.
