Nagesh said, "This year, We have given grace marks to 13 students to pass them in SSLC exams. Out of 14.55 per cent of students who have secured C grade, 9 per cent of students have been allocated grace marks."
He further added, "We are happy that a total of 157 students have scored 625/625 marks in SSLC. Around 289 students have scored 623 marks and two students have scored 622 marks.
