CBSE Class X results: Girls outshine boys
The CBSE last week the results of Class 10 examinations.
Girls once again outshone boys in the Class X results, which recorded a pass percentage of 98.87, a marginal increase over last year.
The pass percentage of girls stood at 99.06 percent as compared to 98.74 percent of boys.
The overall pass percentage last year was 98.76 percent.

Students under this scheme are put through the school- based `continuous and comprehensive evaluation` programme.
