CBSE Class 12 results 2017: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Friday announced that it will release the class 12 board exam results on Sunday. The results, which were expected on May 24, were delayed due to consensus over the moderation policy.
The Delhi High Court on Tuesday had directed the Board to keep the marks moderation policy, which the CBSE was was planning to scrap, and this has triggered the chances of a delay in the class 12 results declaration.
Due to this, there is a common feeling of distress among students. Not just students who want to study abroad were affected and even those who are planning to study abroad were worried. Here is how they reacted:
“I have been appearing for entrance exams and a number of them require your class 12 board results in order to calculate the score. I need to know whether I have cleared these exams or not, but I can’t do that till the board results are out,” says Bhumika Chauhan from Ryan International school, Noida. She adds that class 12 board results are vital for students who have not yet made a decision on what to do after school.
A number of students are dependent on the board exam results to choose their career paths while others report anxiety and rising tension. For students planning to study abroad, there is added pressure.
“I’m planning to do communication abroad and I need my final year grades in order to complete the formalities. The CBSE should at least give a specific date for the results so that we can be prepared,” says Ishanya Narang, a class 12 humanities student. Most foreign universities require the school grades of international students in order to grant them admission. A delay in the results can hinder this process.
“We keep hearing about all the other state boards declaring the results and we are still waiting. Why couldn’t they take this decision about the marks moderation earlier?” says D Ankita, a science stream student in class 12.
Students have even taken to twitter to express their anxiety over the potential delay:
Schools will automatically receive their results on registered email IDs as soon as the results are available. Students can call on the telephone numbers of NIC and MTNL through which results can be accessed through IVRS. These are the National Informatics Centre: 011 – 24300699 and the MTNL: 011 -28127030.
