By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 25 - The High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC)-2018 examination results, which were declared today, saw a significant jump in pass percentage when compared to last year�s, with 56.04 per cent of the students clearing the hurdle this year.

Last year, the pass percentage was 47.94.

The increase in the pass percentage is despite the fact that this year the evaluators awarded lesser grace marks.

�This year we gave less grace marks, though it would not be proper to specify how much. In fact, we want this grace marks system to be abolished. The evaluation should be on the basis of the performance, as it is being unfair to those who have worked hard and fared well,� Education Minister Siddhartha Bhattacharyya said.

The number of first division holders this year is an all-time high, even though the number of candidates who appeared for the exam this year is the lowest in the last six years.

Raktim Bhuyan of Moonlit High School in Sonitpur topped the list of rank holders securing 593 marks out of 600. Abinash Kalita of Anundoram Borooah Academy High School of Barpeta and Preetpal Bezbaruah of Tihu High School came joint second with 592 marks.

There are 37 students in the list of top 10 rank holders this year � with four students each from Sonitpur, Barpeta and Kamrup (M).

Distinction marks (510 and above) were obtained by 6,477 students, while 14,063 students got star marks (450 and above).
