Mysuru has improved its overall ranking from 16th position in 2015 to 11th position in the state this year in the Second Year Pre-University results that were declared on Wednesday. Primary and Secondary Education Minister Kimmane Rathnakar announced the results in Bengaluru.
This year, the examinations were the most controversial one with a series of errors by the Pre-University Education Board and the state government that led to question paper leaks, lecturers’ strike and re-examinations.
Dakshina Kannada has topped the state with 90.48 percent. Udupi with 90.35 percent has come second and Kodagu with 79.35 percent has secured the third place. Yadgir district, with 44.16 percent, has stood last in the state.

B U Hymavathi and Prajwal H M Gargesh of Sadvidya PUCollege have stood in the second place in district rankings with 590 marks. All of them are from science stream.
Speaking to City Today, Akhila said that the library provided by the college, model question papers from the PU Board helped her secure good marks. “I planned my studies well from the beginning and dedicated 5 to 6 hours every day for studies,” she said. She is the proud daughter of V Guruprakash, an insurance company em¬ployee and Gowramma who is a notary. Akhila was the student of Vidhyaashram CET one year classroom coaching.
Divya R Madhyan is the daughter of Rajesh and Bhavana. She attributed the results to her parents and said that she used to sleep for six hours a day and spend the rest of the time in studies both at the college and self-preparations. “My dream is fulfilled. I had expected 590 and above and after seeing the results, I am very happy. I want to pursue engineering,” she said.
B U Hymavathi of Sadvidya PU College who secured the second place with 590 marks said that she was disappointed with the results as she could not score the expected marks. She aspires to be a robotic engineer. She is the daughter of advocate Vidayashanakar and Gowramma.
