The pass rate for Class 12 declined by 5.38 percentage points compared to last year, and the number of students scoring above 90% and 95% also declined. However, CBSE officials stated that comparisons could not be made as the previous academic session was split into two terms due to the pandemic.

Delhi Education Minister Atishi congratulated the students, parents, and teachers and credited their hard work for the outstanding result.

Atishi advised students who did not clear the board exam to focus on improving their results and not stress about it. A total of 2,27,020 students from Delhi government schools appeared for the 12th board exams this year, and 118 schools achieved a 100% result, while 647 schools had a result of over 90%. In Class 10 results, 124 Delhi government schools achieved a 100% result, while 528 schools had a result of over 90%. The CBSE did not publish the merit list to avoid unhealthy competition among students.
