Putting an end to speculations, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has said that it will announce Class 10 and Class 12 board results by the set deadline of July 31, sources within the board told India TV. This implies that the fate of lakhs of students will be revealed within a day or two.
A month ago, the CBSE had informed Supreme Court that it would declare results by July 31, as it rolled out an evaluation scheme for Class 10 and Class 12 board students, following cancellation of the exams in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.
"The CBSE had informed court about its July 31 deadline. So, we will adhere to what we said and declare results for both Class 10 and 12 in time," a source told India TV.
Certain schools are yet to upload the marks of their students, the source said, adding that it is likely be completed by Thursday evening. The CBSE hinted that it would be in a position to make an announcement on the date of the results after the completion of the process. An announcement could be made Friday morning.
Earlier, CBSE Exams Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj had said that the board was meticulously working with schools in order to give accurate, fair and results without any aberration. The board had cancelled its Eid holiday so as to make sure it meets the July 31 deadline.
Class 12 results will be declared on the basis of an alternated assessment policy that takes into consideration the marks of classes 10, 11 and 12 besides internal assessment and projects.
