Increased pass percentage and continuing poor show by Telangana districts are the highlights of the second year Intermediate results this year.

Government colleges came up with impressive performances registering 65 per cent passes and Adilabad district topped the State with 80 per cent. Overall, girls did better with 69.04 per cent passes as against 62 per cent of boys.
Among the 7,71,587 regular candidates 5,04,300 cleared the exams of which 48.31 per cent secured “A” grade (more than 75 percent), 31.81 per cent got “B” grade (between 60 and 75 per cent), 14.99 per cent got “C” grade (between 50 and 60 percent) and 4.90 per cent got “D” grade (between 35 and 50 per cent).
