The Central Board of Secondary Education will declare the Class 12 board examination results today, at noon.
In a change from the usual pattern, this year the board is declaring the Class 12 examination results before the Class 10 results. Normally, CBSE declares the results in the reverse order.
The students will be able to check their results at the official sites of the board. They can also get their results through CBSE’s interactive voice response system, the charges for IVRS are 30 paise per minute. The students can obtain their results through the board’s SMS service as well, which will cost them Re 1 per SMS.
CBSE is also scheduled to conduct a post-result counselling session for the students who are not satisfied with their results. The counselling will be conducted from May 25 to June 8, from 8 am to 10 pm every day. The sessions would be conducted through a Centralised Access System (CAS), where the students can call the CBSE authorities to resolve their queries or issues. The toll-free number for CAS is 1800118004.
This year, the Senior Secondary Examination was held earlier this year, from March 2 to April 20 across 3,164 centres across the country. The admit cards were released online. CBSE had also made provisions for pre-exam online counselling for the students at its official website.
This time, the papers for all major subjects consisted of Value Based Questions, carrying 3-5 marks each. The sample papers for such questions had been published online for English (Core), English (Elective), English (Functional), Biology, Geography, Hindi (Core), Hindi (Elective), Mathematics, Accountancy, Physics, History, Business Studies, Economics and Entrepreneurship.
A total of 10,40,368 students has registered for the exam this year. Out of this, 6,07,383 were boys and 4,32,985 were girls. Last year, these statistics stood at a total number of 10,29,874 students, out of which 6,03,064 were boys and 4,26,810 were girl students.
