The pass percentage last year was 99.98 percent. However, the results were announced on the basis of an alternative assessment scheme as exams could not be conducted in view of the pandemic. In 2020 too, exams had to be cancelled midway following the announcement of a nationwide lockdown to contain the spread of coronavirus. The board had not announced any merit lists in 2020 and 2021. In 2019, the pass percentage stood at 98.54 percent while in 2018 it was 98.51 percent.
