CBSE 12th result 2018: Previous years’ statistics

In 2017, nearly 20 lakh students from 10,678 schools appeared for the CBSE 10th and 12th Board Examinations. Out of these, nearly 11 lakhs appeared in Class 12 Senior Secondary Certificate Exam 2017. In the year 2016, 1,065,179 students had appeared for the board exams. CBSE is also the Board to have one of the best results statistics. Let’s take a look at the previous year trends for the CBSE 12th result 2017.

An overview of the statistics of CBSE 12th result 2017

Year No. of Students Appeared Overall Pass Percentage (%) Boys’ Pass Percentage (%) Girls’ Pass Percentage (%)
2014 1028928 82.66 78.27 88.52
2015 1040368 82.00 77.77 87.56
2016 1065179 83.05 78.85 88.58
2017 1098891 82 78 87.50

What’s worth noticing is that the girls have been giving a better performance than the boys over the past three years. Boys need to catch up with the girls on the pass percentage front. It can be seen that there has been a mild dip in the overall pass percentage compared to 2016.

A reason for the decline in pass percentage of the students this year could be attributed to the length of the setting of the Mathematics Question Paper. People had also hoped that the correction of the copies should be lenient on account of the same, but CBSE did not oblige the parents and students in that respect.

The overall pass percentage (absolute value) for both the girls and boys are way less when compared to the same number for Class 10th board examination, which has been improving over the past years. Also, the number was 98.17 % for class 10th in 2016, which is far more than the 83.05 % for class 12th in 2016.

There is a definite scope for improvement in the CBSE 12th performance. There might be many who ignorantly believe that board marks play no role in a student’s future. This is not true at all if you consider the list of scholarships & admission procedures for which the student’s board marks are taken into account.

Importance of CBSE 12th results 2018

CBSE 12th results 2018 are a significant milestone in everyone’s life as they form the foundation of a student’s career in deciding the future course of action. Listed below is information about what value the CBSE Class 12th results hold for a candidate.

  • The BITSAT Eligibility criterion states that a candidate must score an aggregate of 75% more in Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics, and an individual score over 60% in each. BITSAT also offers direct admission to the board toppers.
  • The top colleges offering decorated BBA/BMS/BA degrees almost always, other than the interviews, consider candidate’s performance in 12th boards. First cut-off of Shri Ram College of Commerce for admission to its B.A. program was 98% in 2016.
  • After completing their under-graduation, many students tend to go for an MBA to improve their prospects of getting a better job. Though it’s true that these colleges hold their own entrance examination vis-a-vis CAT, XAT, etc. However, their admission criterion is based out of a composite score calculated considering different aspects about a candidate. One of these aspects, without a doubt, is the Board score of the aspirants both in their 10th & 12th classes.
