Bangalore: As many as 2,239 students have achieved 100 percent marks in the Karnataka 2nd PUC the result which was prepared following an alternative marking scheme as exams could not be held this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Karnataka 2nd pre-university course (PUC) result has been declared on July 20 by the state education minister, S Suresh Kumar.
Altogether, 445 students in Dakshina Kannada have secured 100% marks in all 6 subjects. 302 students of Bangalore have secured 600 out of 600. Among the districts, the least number of 100 percent scorers are from Udupi.
It is worth noting that the state has achieved 100% pass in the 2nd PUC exam, which is the class 12 equivalent of other state boards. The second-year results were prepared by factoring in class 10 marks, class 11 or first-year PUC marks, and the academic performance of the student in class 12 this year.
"Since everyone has passed PUC this year, there is high demand for the colleges. Department of Collegiate Education has assured additional seats. The minister for higher education assured that this will be done," Kumar said in a press briefing.
