    Hi, I have heard that competition in MP board is very less. So if a person scoring 84% in MP board is in advantage because due to his more percentile at at this score rather then scoring 84% in CBSE. Is it true. Please note that I am talking about percentage scored here and not percentile

    why not publish the percentile of marks of the different board and corresponding mains marks for the year 2013,2014 so that students will get an idea. The more you get in the board and enjoy the higher marks obtained by others in the Mains.
    cbse should publish the percentage and the percentiles of the boards, main marks and the AIR of previous years.
