TIRUCHI: : The overall performance of Tiruchi district in the Standard X public examinations held under the SSLC, Matriculation and Anglo-Indian patterns this year has risen marginally to 89.81 from 89 per cent last year.

The Education Department has heaved a sigh of relief as the new syllabus prescribed for the Government/Government-aided school students this year was perceived to be tough, but the government schools and 16 Adi Dravida Welfare Schools have recorded an overall performance of 82 per cent each. It is 93.4 per cent for government-aided schools, 94.92 for matriculation schools and 97 per cent for Anglo-Indian schools.

Out of a total number of 30,668 students, who appeared for the examinations under the three patterns, 27,544 students have passed. Among the 105 government schools, 12 have obtained cent per cent results. Likewise, institutions with cent per cent results among the 101 government-aided schools, 73 matriculation schools and three Anglo-Indian schools, account for 18, 28 and 1 respectively.
