The Class X results of Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education, announced on Thursday, saw the state topper scoring a highest ever percentage of 98.67%. The overall pass percentage of 65.56% this year was also slightly better than 63.31% in 2012. For a change this year, boys fared a little better with 65.77% pass percentage against girls’ pass percentage of 65.25%. “There were only 16 girls among the top 50 candidates,” said Rajendra Gupta, chief spokesperson of RBSE.

The state topper, Ravi Khandelwal, who belongs to Dausa, has scored the highest ever marks of 98.67% in Class X. “It is unbelievable. I thank my parents and teachers for keeping my moral high by fulfilling all my requirements in advance,” said Khandelwal over phone from Dausa.

The second position was retained by a girl–Sonia Saini of Guda Public School in Jhunjhunu–who lost the first slot by a few decimals. She scored 98.50% and is hoping to attain the first position by applying for re-evaluation in Maths and Science. The third position has two candidates—Amit Jangir of Churu and Kratika Agarwal of Kotputli, both scored 97.17%.

Meanwhile, none of the government schools has produced any student in the top five positions which have eight students. Even after improvement in infrastructure, several schemes running from scholarships to laptops, the performance of government schools is less impressive.

Jaipur has maintained its edge with six students making into the top 10 merit list which has 24 students. It was followed by Dausa with four students. In fact, Shekhawati region and eastern Rajasthan have the maximum number of candidates in top 50 positions.

The biggest disappointment came to education centres like Ajmer who has no student in the list of top 10 positions. Even the score of desert districts like Barmer, Bikaner and Jaisalmer is zero in the list of top 10 positions, which raises a question mark on the condition of government schools.

This year, 11,70,790 students appeared in the exam, including 6,97,513 boys and 4,73,277 girls. The maximum number of students of 1,47,758 appeared from Jaipur including 84,641 boys and 63,117 girls. The minimum participation was from Jaisalmer with 5,461 candidates appearing in the exam including 4,154 boys and 1,307 girls with a surprising pass percentage of 68%.

The pass percentage of Jaipur is above state average with 69%. Nagaur has maximum pass percentage of 71% and minimum pass percentage of 42% was in Pratapgarh. All three districts of Shekhawati region—Churu, Jhunjhunu and Sikar has produced an outstanding pass percentage 68, 71 and 76 respectively.
