The result of class 10 examination, delayed for over two weeks, has been announced today at 1 pm by the Bihar School Education Board (BSEB) on biharboard.ac.in and indiaresults.com. This year the overall pass percentage is 50.12. Prem Kumar from a government scholl in Lakhisarai has topped the exam with 93 per cent marks. The result was delayed twice as the Bihar Board officials met the class 10 toppers for physical verification and took their oral test.
The Bihar Board is extra vigilant in publishing the class 10 results as class 12 results have been facing controversy ever since it is released. The toppers scam, exposed last year, has already damaged the image of Bihar’s education. On top of that, this year too, another topper Ganesh Kumar was arrested after alleged fraud over his age. Local media reports that there is probability of awarding grace marks to students who are failing in one or two subjects. Read | Bihar Board 10th result 2017, check here
