Is higher percentage in SSLC result really reflects the higher standard of education?

SSLC result of this year published on yesterday. The result is a record one. That is the win percentage is higher one in the history of Kerala SSLC. Is this win really reflects the standard level of student? Or the standard level of education? Is this higher percentage is made by providing the mark freely or simply. There are students who passes the SSLC are even not able to handle the English well. Olden days the student who passes the SSLC exam are getting higher respect in the society. Now a days, there is no such respect get for the passed students. Is the increase of standard level of education or decrease of the standard level of education? Members what are you think about this?
