>THE results of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinations 2008 published yesterday broke all previous records with a 70.41 percent pass rate and 41,917 students achieving GPA-5. (Read full report)
The number of schools with hundred percent pass records has also increased to 2,272 from last year’s 778, while the number of schools with zero pass came down to 91 from 248.
Educationists and teachers of renowned schools believe this success in the country’s largest public examination is the outcome of students’ efforts and guardians’ awareness.
The results were published under the grading system introduced in 2001 and showed a tremendous boost with pass rate of 70.41, a leap of 13.82 point from last year’s rate.
Similarly, the results also showed a leap in achieving the highest grade point average (GPA-5) as it shot up to 41,917 from 25,732 last year.

The same improvement has also been seen in the combined average result of seven education boards, Dakhil examination under Madrasa Education Board and SSC vocational examination under Technical Education Board.
