DHARAMSHALA, May 14: The Central Tibetan School Administration (CTSA) schools which is administered by Sambhota Tibetan Schools Society of the Central Tibetan Administration, has emerged as the leading institution in the class XII results, surpassing other educational bodies, including Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs), Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs), government and government-aided schools, and independent schools.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) released the results for class XII and class X on May 13, 2024. In the class XII results, CTSA recorded a pass percentage of 99.23%, the highest among all participating institutions. JNVs and KVs followed with pass percentages of 98.90% and 98.81%, respectively. CTSA had previously secured a pass percentage of 96.77% last year and 97.96% in 2022.

For the class X results, JNVs and KVs performed the best, each achieving a pass percentage of 99.09%. Independent schools recorded a pass percentage of 94.54%, while CTSA registered 94.40%. Government schools had a pass percentage of 86.72%, and government-aided schools recorded 83.95%. Last year CTSA secured a pass percentage of 93.86%, and in 2022, the class X pass percentage for CTSA was 91.27%.

The class X exams were conducted from February 15 to March 13, 2024, and the class XII exams were held from February 15 to April 2, 2024. Approximately 3.9 million candidates in all of India appeared for the CBSE board exams this year.

CTSA was established in 1961 to provide education to Tibetan children in India, with an emphasis on preserving their culture and heritage. Over time, CTSA has undergone administrative changes, with the Government of India transferring its schools to the Department of Education (DOE), Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), and subsequently to the Sambhota Tibetan Schools Society.

CTSA still finances six senior secondary schools which are now administered by Sambhota tibetan Schools Administration, including residential and day schools, in locations such as STS Shimla, STS Dalhousie, STS Darjeeling, STS Kalimpong, STS Mussoorie and STS Herbetpur. These schools follow the CBSE curriculum, using NCERT books supplemented by Tibetan textbooks published by DoE of the Central Tibetan Administration in Dharamshala.
