Delhi schools have seen a constant decline in pass percentages of students in the 9th standard. Despite copious efforts and revamping of syllabus patterns, the pass percentage continue in the 58% which is extremely distressing for the authorities. The report calls for special attention towards these classes to ensure a 100% pass percentage in the future.
The reports however were had positive findings on the reforms and changes that the Delhi government has brought about in the last few years. The report finds the results of those changes quite favourable.
