It should be noted that in one of the popular daily newspaper from Gangtok had named the examination performance of EPSSS for class xii as ‘poor’ along with other schools across the state. Dhan Kumar Subba stated that the performances of the school were not a detailed account. The newspaper failed to mention that EPSSS runs only a Science Streams and the pass percentage of the school was more than 50 % that was shown less in the printed matter. The newspaper also had failed to mention that there were seven students that went on to score first division in the examination with Diwakar Gurung scoring the highest 79.8 percentage. Divakar Gurung went on to score 91 marks in Chemistry, 86 marks in Maths and 85 marks in Physics. EPSSS management is disappointed that we could had bettered our performances but in no sense it can be termed as poor, he added.
