Among the top 10 positions four positions were occupied by students who took the test from Silchar. Students from institutions in Dibrugarh and Pathsala also did well in this year’s examination.
In marked contrast was the absence of toppers from Guwahati. Surajit Kalita of Cotton College, ranked fourth, was the only candidate who could make it to the coveted Science stream merit list.
Results in the Commerce stream revealed an improvement over last year. The pass percentage reached an all time high of 81.17 which last year was 79.81 per cent.

In a marked show of excellence seven students from Gauhati Commerce College secured positions in the top-ten merit list. Jugal Kishore Rathi who appeared from Ramanuj Gupta Jr College, Silchar achieved the top rank with aggregate marks of 446.
Conspicuously missing from the toppers list were candidates from some eminent colleges of Guwahati. Even with much better infrastructure and faculty strength than their counterparts in most other areas, these institutions appear to have faltered in producing rank holders. For instance, Cotton College had only one topper in the Science stream merit list. Other well-known institutions also failed to see their students in the top order.
Vocational: The results of HS Final Year Examination of Vocational Part II declared today showed a pass percentage of 77.59, a drop from 80.17 per cent registered in 2011. In all, 921 candidates were successful of 1187 who had appeared for the exam.
