This is the second consecutive year that around 95% of the TYBCom batch have cleared the exam. Before the pandemic, this percentage was 70-74% every year.
Experts attributed this result to the fact that in the last two years the exams have been conducted in Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) format. “With MCQs, students are also managing to score 100 out of 100 in languages too, so it is not surprising that the pass percentage of the third year batch is so good,” said the principal of a suburban college.
