The school children from Punjab have excelled in the nationwide learning outcome levels survey, conducted by the Ministry of Education, as per the report of the National Achievement Survey (NAS) 2021, released.
Punjab has not only scored more than the national average in all the categories, but has also topped in 10 of the 15 subjects, leaving behind other states including Delhi.
The survey was conducted by Education Ministry, and the students of class 3, 5, 8 and 10 were tested in various subjects to assess their learning achievement and to assess impact of pandemic on academics.
The #NAS2021 report will be helpful in making a robust assessment framework at its core, designed on the principles of assessing student learning outcomes. Access the report at https://t.co/s03BkJ7hl4.

The NAS report shows that Punjab has scored more than Delhi in all subjects for all classes (3, 5, 8 and 10). Even for class 10, Delhi has scored less than Punjab in all subjects including English in which Punjab stands third (after Chandigarh and Goa). While Punjab’s average score in English for class 10 is 330, it is 321 for Delhi (out of 500).
Meanwhile, Punjab’s excellent performance comes amid the push by Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann who wants to bring an “education revolution” in state by implementing the “Delhi model”.
Punjab Chief Minister said that government schools in Punjab have been “lagging behind” and need a complete overhaul as has been done by Chief Minsiter Arvind Kejriwal in Delhi.
