Overall pass percentage is 82 percent, while it was 83 percent a year ago. "The most fantastic news for me is that students scored 100 per cent in physical education (PE), as the school had lacked in sports when I came in", Sharma said. Of the 431 students who sat for the examination in 2017, compared to 310 students a year ago, 427 students passed the examination.

A total of 2,497 candidates with various disabilities also sat for the exams this year, of which 2,123 students passed.

Two times in a year, CBSE conducts UGC NET exams for determining the eligibility of Indian nationals for Assistant Professor and Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) for universities and colleges across India. How does the moderation policy work? Then the third session, Paper 3 will be of 150 marks and all the 75 questions are compulsory. "We had first batch of humanities that scored highest percentage of 93.2 per cent, which is a good start", Bhatia said.

Gems students secured a number of remarkable scores in the latest round of the CBSE exams too. In the past, the marks moderation policy was used to spike marks for students. However, following intervention of Delhi High Court, the board made a decision to implement the change from next year. The High Court quashed the Board's decision to do away with the moderation or grace marks policy stating that students who wrote the examination in March would have attempted it thinking there would be grace marks if the question turned out to be hard. "Also congrats to students of all boards", Javadekar said in a video message to students. In the examination 2314 students remained absent while 75767 passed the examination. "Be happy", Rajkummar said. Still moderation marks were considered only for students, who have not been doing well in all their term exams and tests. Uncertainty prevailed for more than one week as the CBSE postponed the announcement, but that anxiety soon turned to elation for many, including the UAE's science and commerce toppers.

"We want the regional director of CBSE to answer us otherwise strict action should be initiated against him", another parent complained. "It is an academic call that the board needs to take". Results for all the 10 regions have been announced simultaneously by CBSE. While some of them are mature enough to deal with the disappointment, others are not.

From Delhi Private School (Dubai) Aiman Hasan Khan proved to be the humanities stream topper with a score of 97.6 per cent; and Rutwik Makarand Vishwamitre came out on top in the science stream with 97.8 per cent.
