RS Praveen, secretary of Telangana tribal and social welfare societies, highlighted the fact that social and tribal welfare students are performing extremely well for the last five years.
Meanwhile, pointing out at the concept of self-centres, private colleges said these centres are making all the difference. “At least students of 40 government colleges appeared for the board exam in their respective colleges. If the state really wants to boast about their results, they should release college-wise results as it would give a clear picture,” Satish G, honorary president, Telangana Private Junior Colleges.
According to the data released by the board, the pass percentage of second-year students of BC welfare institutes stood at 89.8%, followed by Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions who secured 83.8% pass percentage and tribal welfare students who managed to secure 81.9%
Class 12 students of government junior colleges secured only 63.1% and students of aided colleges secured overall pass percentage of 60.1%.
