Patna : The poor success rate of students at the Intermediate Exam 2017 conducted by Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) clearly reflects on the quality of education in state schools. This is a matter of serious concern for Bihar government as even those who have cleared the exam would hardly get admission in a reputed Delhi college. Indeed, the BSEB and state government had succeeded in stopping use of unfair means at the Intermediate Exam this year but that does not justify the poor pass percentage.

Out of the 12.40 lakh students who appeared at the exam in 2017, only 4.37 lakh or 35.25 % could clear the exam. Khuboo Kumari  of Simultallah Residential School in Jamui district, who emerged topper in Science stream, got 86.2%. Incidentally, only 30.11 % students were able to clear the Intermediate Science Exam this year. In the Humanities (IA), the pass percentage was 37.13 %. Ganesh Kumar, a student of Samastipur school in North Bihar, topped the IA exam getting 82.6 %. Priyanshu Jaiswal  topped the  Commerce stream securing 81.6 %.

BSEB will give Rs 1 lakh and a laptop each to the toppers of in all three streams while second and third toppers would get Rs 75,000 and Rs 50,000 each respectively plus laptops.
