GUWAHATI : Government Schools steal the thunder in HSLC examination 2018.
Assam Education Minister Siddhartha Bhattacharya said 5 government schools feature among the top 10 rank holders this year.
“After many years, boys have done better than girls in HSLC examinations,” Bhattacharya said during a press conference at Janata Bhawan here today.
Bhattacharya also announced that the pass percentage is better compared to last
year which stands at 56.04 percent.
Dhemaji tops the results with 79.76 pass percent and Udalguri being the lowest among the districts.
On being asked the reason behind the better performance of the government schools, Bhattacharya attributes to the Gunotsav, an interactive educational drive by Government employees in the schools.
“Gunotsav has improved the quality of education and pass percentage has improved this year as compared to the last time”, Bhattacharya said.
