IMPHAL | May 8

Education Minister of Manipur, Th. Radeshyam Singh Wednesday declared the results of class XII examinations conducted by the Council of Higher Secondary Education Manipur (COHSEM).

The total pass percentage this year is 73.83 percent with Noney district getting the highest number with 92.19 pass percentage followed by Thoubal with 83.14 percent. Girl students also outshone boys with a pass percentage of 77.41 against 70.14.

Altogether 28,649 students appeared in the examinations of which 7 were expelled for using unfair means.

There are two toppers in science stream namely Micheal Atom and Laishram Librada Singh.

In Commerce, Gurumayum Roberto Sharma topped the exam and Oinam Barlin Meitei in Arts stream.

Officially declaring the results at COHSEM office in Imphal, Th. Radeshyam said the Government schools and colleges this time have given a promising result when compared to previous years.

This time, the pass percentage of Government run schools and colleges is 61.96 percent witnessing an increase of nearly 12 percent against the pass percentage of 2017 which is 50.33. Moreover, students from Government institution have also made it in the toppers list of Commerce and Arts stream except for science. “This is a good news for the Government”, said the Radeshyam.

As usual, private schools outshone Government institution with a pass percentage of 78.64 against its previous number 72.68.

The education Minister has attributed encouraging results to the ‘tireless’ efforts of all stake holders including his staffs, parents of the students and the media.

He revealed that the result was declared in a record time despite the apprehension of being under-staff due to their engagement in the recently concluded election.

Even as the overall pass percentage is encouraging, the pass percentage Kamjong district was recorded nil with none of the seven students who had appeared fail to crack the exams. The saddest part is that there was no mention of Pherzawl district anywhere in the lists of the results released by the COHSEM.

Responding to queries on the reason for leaving behind Pherzawl in the list, Ph Mantri Controller of examinations said, “There are no class XII students in the district as there are no higher secondary schools in the district so far. But, we are hopeful that we will soon see a handful of students in the following year”.

Kamjong and Pherzawl are new districts created in the year 2016 under the Ibobi Singh led Congress Government. Kamjong was bifurcated from Ukhrul and Pherzawl from Churachandpur district.
