The overall results have improved this year due to the board's decision on allotting grace marks. Last year, the pass percentage stood at 46.6 percent.

Addressing the press, BSEB chairperson Anand Kishore said that this year's top 10 rank-holders of the Class X Matric examination had to go through physical verification.

However, what constituted the board 'physical verification' was rather questionable. Speaking to Hindustan Times, Bhavya Kumari who secured the second position, said she had to appear for an interview before a panel of subject experts who asked me different questions.” But Kumari also said she was happy with her performance.
