Girls have performed better than boys this time as well, with 88.58 per cent girls clearing the exams compared to 78.85 per cent of boys.

In several Delhi schools, a large number of students managed to get more than 90 per cent marks. “As many as 77 students out of 200 have scored more than 90 per cent marks in the school. More than 100 have scored more than 90 percent in English,” said Ameeta Mulla Wattal, principal of Springdales School, Pusa Road.

In DPS Vasant Kunj, 46 per cent students scored above 90 per cent and 14 per cent scored more than 95 per cent, said principal Bindu Sehgal. Another school where similar results were reported was Ahlcon International School, Mayur Vihar, where 69 out of 180 students scored more than 90 per cent marks.

Springdales principal Wattal said, “This is reflective of a very big problem. A student securing 95 per cent feels he doesn’t stand anywhere..It is causing a lot of anxiety among the children. We really need to take a hard look at how marks are given.”

Despite an increasing number of students scoring more than 90 per cent, the score in mathematics has been a major source of disappointment for many students.

Students, teachers and parents had protested this year’s maths paper which, according to them, “was too tough”. While the Board had promised “remedial measures” as well as “lenient checking”, students said this was not reflected in their marks.

“After the hue and cry over the paper, CBSE has assured us about better marking. But this hasn’t reflected at all in the results,”said Ashok Pandey, principal, Ahlcon International School.
