Congrats! Our wholehearted wishes for her long journey ahead!DHARAMSHALA: Under the headship of Harvard scholar prime minister, with his cabinet putting education on the priority list for the refugee population, Tibetans schools in India have achieved 100% results in the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) class-XII board examination. The overall pass percentage of Tibetan schools is 87.3%, which is a notch higher than the all India aggregate of 82.10%.

Four Tibetan Children Village (TCV) schools - TCV Selakui, TNMF Clement Town, TCV Gopalpur and THF Mussoorie - have achieved 100% results this year. Out of the 1,616 Tibetan students who appeared in the All India Secondary School Certificate Examination (AISSCE) conducted by CBSE, 1,411 have passed, 47 students failed and 158 students were placed under compartment category (failed in one subject).

However, compared to last year's result of Tibetan schools in class XII board examination, this year's performance has shown a significant dip. Last year, the overall pass percentage was 92.52%.

Girls of Tibetan schools have outshined boys in this year's examination. Out of 798 boys who appeared in the examination, 686 (85.96%) have passed, whereas 725 girls (88.63%) out of 818 have cleared the examination.

Tenzin Chokyi of THF School topped in arts stream with 95.4%. Having scored above 95%, she is entitled to claim the prestigious Sikyong Scholarship of Rs 1,00,000. This new scholarship was rolled out this year by the department of education to encourage students to work harder and perform better in class XII board examinations.

Trinley Tsering Lama of TCV School, Selakui topped in science and Tenzin Thinlay of THF topped in commerce stream with 92.8% and 90.4% respectively.

Tibetans here have claimed that these are the efforts of their new prime minister, Lobsang Sangay, who has concentrated on improving the standard of education among Tibetans. Sangay would be interacting with college students attending a workshop being organized by the Tibetan Parliamentary and Policy Research Centre in McLeodganj tomorrow, where he would be briefing on the situation inside Tibetan and efforts being done by the Tibetan government in exile.
