A week after releasing the class 10 board exam result, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has now also declared result for class 12 term-1 board exams on Saturday night.

CBSE released the term-1 class 12 board exam results on Saturday night. The result was directly mailed to the schools. “Performance of students in term-1 examinations being communicated to the schools,” CBSE said in an official notice on Saturday. The board is informing schools only about the theory performance of the Class 12 students in a collective manner. “Hence, the performance of individual students will not be made available on the website,” CBSE said.

Also, after the class 10 term-1 board exam results, several students who appeared for the class 10 exams claimed that the CBSE class 10 Odia question paper had several errors and the same were not addressed in the answer key or during declaration of results. In response to this, CBSE set up an expert committee to examine the discrepancies mentioned by several students and others on social media. The committee rechecked the questions and answers, and a revised result of the aggrieved students were then sent to their schools.

“Based on the report of the expert committee, the CBSE has evaluated the OMRs of Odia Class 10 with the correct answer key approved by the expert committee. The revised performance of students has been since sent to the concerned schools for onward information of the students. A total of 28310 students have benefitted as a result of this revision,” the official notice read.
