New Delhi: Delhi government schools fared better as compared to private schools for the second time in a row in the CBSE Class 12 results, which was declared on Sunday.

The pass percentage for government schools is 88.27 per cent whereas private schools recorded 79.27 per cent, a difference of 9 per cent. Last year, the gap between the government and private schools’ pass percentage was 2 per cent.

Deputy chief minister and education minister Manish Sisodia congratulated all the students, teachers, and principals for the outstanding performance. He said, “Children studying in government and private schools are both ours. But it is a moment of pride that children studying in Delhi’s government schools are performing so much better than private schools. This remarkable result has been achieved despite the fact that this year we had prevented cheating in a big way.”

The Delhi government’s premier Rajkiya Pratibha Vikas Vidyalayas (RPVVs) have outperformed the Central government’s Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs). RPVVs’ pass percentage is 99.7 percent and that of KVs is 94.6 per cent.

The four top-scorers from Delhi government schools from different streams are Vikas Upadhyay (science), Garvit Dang (commerce), Jyoti (arts), and Harshita (vocational). As many as 33 students have scored perfect 100 in one or more subjects. The number of schools which have a pass percentage of more than 90 per cent has gone up from 547 to 554 this year.

The deputy chief minister announced that the toppers of all schools and streams will be felicitated. Meanwhile, Class 12 Delhi region pass percentage is 88.37 per cent as compared to 87.01 per cent last year. The national capital secured third rank in region-wise result with Trivandrum and Chennai topping the tally. For 17-year-old Jyoti, it was a dream come true on Sunday when the results were declared.

A student of Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya (SKV), Nangloi, she scored 94.8 per cent and was declared as topper in all government schools in Arts stream. “We still cannot believe that she scored such high marks. Even though she used to focus on her studies a lot, she never told us that she is expecting above 90 per cent. This is a surprise for the entire family,” said Jyoti’s younger sister Dishu.
