The Haryana Board of School Education (HBSE) has declared the final results for Class X along with the merit list on late Monday evening .
Students can check their results at HBSE's official website: www.bseh.org.in. The students can also see the results on their mobile phones from Android Google Play Store by downloading the app Education Board Bhiwani Haryana.
The HBSE initially released an incorrect merit list for the class X examination conducted by it, which it had to rectify later. Two employees were suspended for the goof-up, which authorities said had occurred due to a computer glitch.
The overall results too did not cover the the Board with glory as almost every second student who took the exam,
failed. Out of the 3,15,900 students who took the exam, only 1,59,490 passed.
The official said that the error regarding the incorrect merit list had been caused by "computer glitch, which was later rectified".
According to the final merit list which came out on the official website in the evening, Sirsa-based Yudhveer from VN Senior Secondary School is the state topper with 499 marks out of 500. The second topper Sumit from Saraswati Senior Secondary School scored 496. The third position is shared among Sonam from Gyan Sarovar Vidya Mandir High School and Rakesh Kumar from Swami Vivekanand Senior Secondary School, who both scored 495.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Jagbir Singh, chairperson of the education board had said there was a technical error due to which the results were withdrawn. "The computer changed the three-digit 100 score into two digit, giving D grade to top scorers due to some problem," he said.
The merit list that was published initially had said the state topper was Monika Rani from Senior Model High School who had scored 493. Rupesh, a student from Adarsh Sr Sec School in Kairu, was the second topper in the state with a score of 491. The third rank was shared between Sakshi from Amar Jyoti Sr Sec School, Anjali from Model KM Senior Secondary School, and Ravi Kumar from Bal Adarsh High School as they had all scored 490 marks.
The goof-up gave the opposition Congress, an opportunity to attack the BJP.
"Another blunder on part of Haryana BJP government, that perpetually dithers on all planks! Why are you jeopardising the future of 4 lakh students?," senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted.
The examination was conducted by the Bhiwani-based board in the month of March.
According to officials, 50.49 per cent of the students who appeared, passed the exam. While 55.30 per cent girls passed, only 46.52 per cent of the boys cleared the examination, according to a Board release.
Out of the total 3,15,900 candidates, 16,738 students got compartment while 1,39,672 students remained unsuccessful. As many as 1,73,193 boys appeared in the examination out of which 80,572 passed whereas out of 1,42,707 enrolled girls, 78,918 passed.
The pass percentage for candidates from the government schools in the examination was 43.50 whereas, it was 51.18 per cent in case of government aided schools and 58.13 per cent in case of private schools.
While the pass percentage for students from rural areas was 52.58 per cent, it was 48.38 per cent in case of students from urban areas.
Former Education Minister and senior Congress leader Geeta Bhukkal also attacked the BJP government over the results.
"They are busy in observing Gita festivals, finding course of mythical Saraswati river, giving lectures on moral education and they are involving teachers and students in these campaigns. They should rather devote time to filling up vacancies in schools and creating better infrastructure," Bhukkal said.
About 3.5 lakh students had appeared in Class X examinations in Haryana. The exam was conducted on March 7 at 1618 centres across the state.
The state board had declared Class XII results on Wednesday, and 65.4 percent of the nearly 2 lakh students who appeared for the exam this year were successful, as compared to last year's passing percentage of 62.40.
