Pune stood third with 95.10 percent, and Mumbai was fourth with 92.90 percent. Continuing the trend, girls had outperformed boys once again. The girl students achieved a pass percentage of 92.94 percent, while they boys got 90.18 percent.

This year, over 17.3 lakh students appeared for the Class 10 examination, which was conducted at 343 centres across the state. The exams began on March 3 and concluded on March 26. The students were tested on subjects under Science and Technology, Social Science, Mathematics, Languages and Information Communication Technology.

Also, the state saw an increase in the number of schools having a 100 percent pass record, with a total of 4,731 schools stating that all their students passed. The number of schools reporting zero pass percentage has also reduced to 21 this year.
