(MENAFN - Arab News) Results of the All India Senior Secondary Examination (Grade 12) conducted by New Delhi-based Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in March 2010 were announced on the CBSE website and by International Indian schools in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam Friday.

International Indian School-Jeddah (IISJ) has a pass percentage of about 95 percent and International Indian School-Riyadh (IISR) 94.2 percent.
