Tura: After improving to an all-time high of over 34% last year, the pass percentage of the entire Garo Hills region tumbled by over 200 basis points to 31.94% this year.

The best-performing district in Garo Hills was West Garo Hills with 36.58 per cent of the students passing. The total number of students that appeared in the district was 9,925, of which 3,631 cleared their exams.

The next best was the district of East Garo Hills, with 2,897 students appearing for the exam and 1,020 passing for an average of 35.2 per cent.

Urban centres hogged all the limelight, with Tura doing the best in terms of achievers. The plain belt, which has been regularly among the top 20, once again continued to shine with three rank holders.
