After the release of the results of PSEB class 10, Punjab Chief Minister, Amarinder Singh asked the state education minister to map the path which can help the state in improving the standards of education.
The class 10 board results were announced by the PSEB on May 22, which witnessed the inability of around 40 percent students to pass the examination who had appeared for the exam. 18 percent of the students failed in single exam and will appear for the compartment exams.
Only 24 students from the government schools were able to make it to the merit list of the state which had appeared
for the exam.
“The Chief Minister spoke to Education Minister Aruna Chaudhary on Tuesday morning to express dismay over the shocking 15-point dip in students’ performance in the PSEB Class X exam,” said a spokesperson.
He also told that CM was very disturbed with the falling education standards in the state.
Commenting on the results CM said that this would hinder the growth of the students and they will be left behind in the race for the good job and career growth. This year, only two students are there in the top 10 from government schools.
