After the consequence’s information was crunched, broke down and plotted in diagrams, Das found a fascinating disjointedness in the checking framework: there are 33 diverse scores unattained between the passing sign of 35 and the most extreme of 100 by the practically 1,50,000 who showed up for the Icse (Class X) exam. As per Das’ discoveries, not a solitary understudy got the accompanying imprints: 36, 37, 39, 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 56, 57, 59, 61, 63, 65, 67, 68, 70, 71, 73, 75, 77, 79, 81, 82, 84, 85, 87, 89, 91, 93.
