The number of educational institutions with a zero percent pass rate has increased in the published results of the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent exams, while the number of institutes with a 100 percent pass rate has decreased this time.
According to educationists, apart from the decrease in pass rate and the number of GPA-5, these two indicators hint that more efforts are required from the students and teachers to improve the scenario of intermediate-level education.
Only five institutions had a zero percent pass rate in 2021. Accordingly, this time the percentage of educational institutions with a zero percent pass rate has increased 10 times.
In 2021, there were 1,934 institutions from which all the students who participated in the HSC and equivalent examinations passed.
