Students recorded a pass percentage of 96.04% in the Plus one exams, the highest since the exams were introduced three years ago for State board schools.

Nearly 8.15 lakh school students had taken up the exams in March and the results were announced on Friday morning.

Coimbatore recorded the highest pass percentage with 98.10% followed by Virudhunagar and Erode at 97.90% and 97.51% respectively.

The students were awarded marks based on their quarterly and half-yearly exams for the final papers that they missed.

Of the 7,248 higher secondary schools that had students take up the exam, 2,716 schools recorded a 100% pass percentage. 92.71 percentage of government schools had all students clearing the exams.

Students were sent their results through SMS and could also access the results on www.dge1.tn.nic.in , www.dge2.tn.nic.in or www.tnresults.nic.in.
