Pune, July 15, 2020: The Pune region of Central Board of Education (CBSE) ranked 10th position in the region-wise list of pass percentage of the class-12 results that were recently declared. The pass percentage of the region was 90.24 this year. There was an increase of 5.38 per cent of students clearing the 12th board making a total of 88.78 per cent this year.
School Principals said that the 20 mark objective questions introduced last year in CBSE have been a positive sign for students as most of them were preparing for competitive entrance tests with the board exams.

Maharashtra was a part of the board’s Chennai region until last year. This year Pune became a separate independent region comprising Maharashtra, Goa, Silvassa and Daman and Diu.
