With the pass percentage of 94.83, the girls outshined the boys again. The pass percentage of boys was 90.99.

PSEB chairman Krishan Kumar said for the first time in the history of the board, the pass percentage had touched a high of 90.98. "Even in government schools, the pass percentage was a record 94.32," he said.

Of the 2,86,378 students, 2,60,547 students passed the examination held before the Covid-19 outbreak.

As examinations for some subjects were cancelled due to the pandemic, the PSEB adopted the best-performing-subject formula for declaring the results.

The pass percentage of students belonging to rural areas was 93.39, which was higher than 91.96 recorded for urban area students.

In the commerce group, 91.05 per cent students had cleared the exam while in humanities 92.87 per cent, medical 93.80 per cent and in the non-medical stream 93.56 per cent students passed the exam this year.

School Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla said, "We have been working tirelessly to uplift the standard of education under the guidance of Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh. Our efforts have started showing results as every year we have seen a growth in the pass percentage of board examinations."

He said in 2017, the pass percentage of Class XII was below 63 which registered a slight growth in 2018 (65.97). He said 86.41 per cent students passed the exam last year.
